Is it better for the daughter to contact a solicitor or try to handle the criminal injuries application on her own?
My daughter is in the process of applying for criminal injuries for a bad domestic abuse situation, there were several injuries over several months, not to mention the mental impact, she obtained a doctors report which barely covers any of the injuries, some she never sought medical attention at the time, one a broken nose and her jaw, none of this mentioned in the doctors report, she has now been referred as it will probably need an opration as she cant breathe through one side and when she eats it sounds like someone clapping coconuts togehter (liek you did as a kid for horses hooves) but due to covid she is on a long waiting list to be seen, noen of this was mentioned in the report, she has until december before the two years deadline is up, should she contact her doctor and query the report (whcih she had to pay for) and also should she contact a solicitor or is that not a good path to go down ? she had a terrible time and the judge told her to apply for criminal injuries, would a solicitor just eat to much into her compesnation as it probably wont be worth a lot ? is it better to do it on her own or is it complicated and better with a solicitor
