I assume you're based within the UK?

Who on earth are the PIAB? I've been doing personal injury work for 15 years and I've never hear of them. [Unless you're in the Irish Republic?]

If you're unhappy next to the solictoir, don't just b1tch about it - do something!
Get a solictor near whom you are happy and tranfser the case. The different solictor will do it for you.

Assuming you are on a CFA, the defendant will pay the solictor's fees, none will come from your damages.
At least, it shouldn't, if you're solicitor is straight. Source(s): I'm a advocate (UK)
You can ask for a reduction in his charge....and he can tell you no.

If you want to know what he is required to do and what remedies you have - read the retainer contract you signed when you hired him.
