  • Injury Lawyers asking for me to transfer money back to them after completion of claim

    Hi All,

    First post, looking for advice.

    I had a road traffic accident a couple of years ago where I was knocked off my pedal bike by a reckless motorist. I found local solicitor to make a claim against him/his insurer, mainly for the cost of my bike and personal effects. After 3 years of back and forth emails and medical appointments with medical consultants, I won the case and my solicitor transferred me the claim amount, minus their 25% cut and a figure for "no win no fee" insurance.

    Anyway, fast forward a couple of weeks after transferring me the money, they have contacted me saying that I needed to send them £800 back for a medical report that was re-done after they were not happy with the initial consultants interpretation/wording. They said they forgot to deduct it before they transferred me the money. At the time they advised me to proceed with another consultant and told me that if I did I would likely have to pay £300 from my damages.

    Apparently the reason it is actually £800 is that the agency would not waive their fee for the discarded report and the insurance would not cover it. So it amounted to the full £800. My issue is that I was never informed of any of that at the time of agreeing to their advice to discard the report and proceed with another consultant.

    Where do i stand on this legally? I thought the moment they transferred me the amount of damages, minus their fee and the insurance premium I was free to get on with my life and forget about the whole thing. Now my own solicitor is badgering me for £800 that they say I owe them.

    Some advice would be appreciated. They have been chasing me for a couple of weeks leaving voicemails but I note they have not put anything in writing which concerns me.
