Little we know about our legal system.
Very rare that we go to our Local MP for help,
It surprises me how little we know about our legal system. 99% of people would recommend me to know wind no fee Solicitors’ but to understand how the devil collaborates you have to probe into their rule books not that they abide by them but it serves a purpose when it is in their favour, the Limitation of what the Law Society would do for you, which amounts to very little and the Civil Procedure Rules referred to as CPR
Solicitors’; are not like your Builders, Plumbers, Electricians, Media, these groups are willing to go on rogue builders and chop each other up into bits.
Solicitors belong to a club called the Law Society, the first rule that a solicitor abides by is to get there mouth stapled together and this is how the infrastructure works. If we can call your plumber a solicitor he can break every rule in the book and get away with it. The Law’s rulebook says you have to pay him and then take him to court and proof that he has broken the CPR rules that is if you have sacked him before you can move on to another solicitor, if your second solicitor decides to break every Rule in the book and you no longer can afford to “dismissed” him, by the way they don’t use those words for Solicitors’ you have to remove him off the record. But if it is an insurance claim the insurance company will pay him whether you agree to it or not. You will soon grow up to realize this two organization are buddies and the same animal just like a chameleon. Loss Assessors after creating too many enemies go on to work for law firms.
I came across this forum a little late in the day but to the interests of others whose solicitors undermine them, this forum discussion would be of use.
help please why do solicitors use the "Official Solicitor" as the litigation friend over family members. Can the family stop this from happening.
(I would ask to see whatever Order has led to the Official Solicitor being put in place. You can apply to overturn such an order by application but you would need your own solicitor to do this, and the court is unlikely to overturn it unless there are very good reasons for doing so.)
What the devil earns in a years bonus, my wife Mary has a brain injury and fractured 3 of her vertebrae has not receive her compensation 9 years this April, the mine boggles what the devil thinks of us. 17 Mar. 2012.
The current position on this case; 03 March 2011
I have asked my MP Andy Love for help several months ago he has not even bothered to answer my e-mail I went to his surgery and spoke to his secretary and have returned every fortnight and have been fogged off every time I go with excuses like they have not had any reply yet from Costco's. But this matter should be dealt with accordingly by the human rights act. a company had breach the health and safety regulations and injured a woman fractured three vertebrae causing a mild brain injury and lost her job her husband had to close down his business to take care of her.
The system in return decided that she did not have the mental capacity to decide whether the amount offered was sufficient, did not want any of her family to have a say in the matter, brought a court appointed solicitor to take over the matter and decided to except the offer and demanded that the injured party had to obtain a psychiatrist report in addition, to obtain a penny that was due to her, after they have decided what she deserved. At this stage the case has ended she is now on trial to produce a report on her present mental capacity, because we believe that we the claimant is not on trial and since the case is over and has all the reports from no less than five consultants not including the NHS. Why on earth does our society have to put an injured party true such punishment when they are totally innocent, and the defendant has accepted liability within the first month of the accident? If we cannot get justice from a clear and cut case like this how on earth are we ever going to sue insurance companies corrupted solicitors that require a lot of legal proof.
PS (Update) I would like to add, we have been patiently waiting for our MP to obtain some results from this injustice, it is now Friday, 15 April 2011, and still no reply?
It has been over 8 years since the incident and we are still waiting for our corrupted legal system to release my wives compensation so we can get on with our lives, it's in the hands of our MP for an extremely long while, with no results. They keep on demanding requirements after the case has ended from a victim of negligence by Costco who has a mild brain injury it is like asking a man who has lost his arms for his signature before they pay his compensation, pathetic.
Poohgranma, well what can I say, thank you very much for being so kind and thoughtful, if only the world can react the way you have when you see injustice and refuse to accept this type of mentality from the people that govern our society through the positions they hold. Our world would change tomorrow.
I do not think that people understand how difficult it is to cope with a situation like this, where one-minute your living a normal life that you take for granted and the next your whole world have changed, the wife or husband you have comes home a different person after receiving a mile brain injury. Your focus is on the three fractured vertebrae that she had received from those falling washing machines, at the time of the accident you thought you have lost her, because of the blood pouring out of her mouth, after being thrown 9 to 10 foot away by the speed of those falling machines.
She has to be in a body cast for five months, you have to do everything. Know help from anybody you notice over the period changes, but you dismissed it, you are so please to have her back alive, you approach solicitors to help you manage your situation and fight for compensation.
You do not have the time to go chasing after them to do their job, your solicitor ignores your scenario for a year after the accident and finally invites you to his office to discuss your wives injuries. You say to yourself surely I should get some help in managing our situation. You serve the net to see what happens to people after receiving such injuries, you come across a girl that had been assaulted and she received help in having railing’s fitted around her stairways and Bath. The temperature in 2003 was the hottest we head in the UK on record your wife is stuck in a body cast for five months, you had to close your business down to take care of her. Still no help 18 months have passed you receive an interim payment of £5,000 you approach the Law Society and put your case forward, the Law Society agrees that all civil procedure rules have been broken, and advise you there’s nothing they can do, they have approached your solicitors insurers warning them there is a possibility of the firm being sued for professional negligence and tells you this is the only way forward there is nothing else they can do. You are expected from now on to fine another solicitor to take on your case and at the same time to sue your first solicitor for professional negligence. The solicitor offers you £1000 for the wrong they have done. Do they really expect us to accept it?
We went on to have a total of three solicitors the second solicitor had the case thrown out due to negligence on their behalf we had to approach the Law Society to have the firm engage a barrister to have the case reinstated.
Our third solicitor have brought us to our current position, knowing that we documented all of our correspondent hardly sent us any mail except documents that require signature all demands for money they expected the claimant to pay for her barrister upfront.
They have all been paid except the claimant? And this is how British justice works.
You are being emailed because one of your constituents mentioned below has raised problems about the Court of Protection/Office of Public Guardian or Official Solicitor to you but nothing has been done. These problems concern fraud, corruption, abuse and human rights violations.
We are a large group of victims that have encountered these problems and we have decided that we would like 15 MPs to represent 1of their constituents and to have one large group meeting to discuss these problems with John Hemming MP who is investigating these problems within the CoP/OPG and decide how you are going to combat these complaints because we are very unhappy with the abuses we have encountered and continue to encounter because no-one is resolving these issues.
We hope all 16 of you can make a change in legislation and raise these concerns to the Lords.

Dear CoP/OPG/Official Solicitor victims,
I forgot to mention the MPs that fail to act for you, I plan to protest outside their office around June so they have a month to let me know how they plan to deal with your case. This will surely, get them moving!

Dear Ms Goder
Thank you for your email received today.
I would be grateful, if you could telephone my Office on 020-8803-0574 in order to discuss this matter further.
Andy Love MP
He asked me to call him. Will do tomorrow! Is there anything you want me to say to him?
Is there any concerns/problems you want me to raise?
We have given him some of the information about our case but they are sitting on it, it has been months since I first approached his office.
They have a very negative attitude considering that two people nearly lost their lives eight years ago and Mary Berry had not received her compensation. Our solicitors and the court decided to declare that she does not have the mental capacity to decide was the offer enough and put it in the hands of a court-appointed solicitor, and ended the case, with several attempts we have tried to get the money release with no satisfaction, may I add there has been no written statement by the court that they have declared that my wife does not have the mental capacity to decide on the offer.
They have no expert report on Mary Berry does not have the capacity to decide was the offer enough, for the simple reason that case was based that she was fabricating her problem by the defendants experts. Therefore on the basis of the conclusion the offer was based, so in some way they are contradicting the results of the final offer on which it was based they cannot have it both ways. That is why they don’t have a report by experts saying that she does not have the mental capacity, they want her to obtain one now when the case is over, and the court-appointed solicitor had already accepted it.
They have taken away all of her human rights and had ignored her existence. Our MP seem to be doing the same I have told him that we have not been working or receiving any financial help and we may have to put our property up for sale. He don’t seem to see that the breach of human rights has to go through his office first before it can be brought to the European courts.
P.S. When you look at the logic of it, someone injures you and says that you do not have the mental capacity to understand that they have injured you, and take that decision out of your hands, and refuses your family or husband or wife to have any say in the matter and put it in the hands of a third party, that has nothing to do with the person or his or her family, is there any logic in it.
"Court of Protection-Public Guardianship Corruption"
For those of you in the US think you don’t have this problem, you have got it even worse, and they are killing some of your elderly people off to get their money.
" This is what our local paper has to say about the case",
It seems to me they were getting their instructions what to publish from someone in a higher position.
They never published halve of the things we told them, it was a waste of effort.
The support we had, one would wonder were we living in a Third World Country, it is appalling. Their seemed to be more proactive help in the United States.

Hi, just like to say that I was there on the day this happened.
Hi, just like to say that I was there on the day this happened. I've been thinking about what happened to this lady for years. I'm really happy she's alive. My family and I have been kept awake at night thinking about happened that day because we never saw any news stories on it. You'd think a washing machine falling on someone would at least make the local news!
SarcasticGenius3 weeks ago
Hi SarcasticGenius, I manage to go to one of our local paper to tell them about the accident a year later, the editor was shocked, he said we never heard a word about it the police or ambulance normally let us know about this type of accident. Well now you may understand how powerful this multi-corporations are, it has been eight years now since the accident and my wife still has not received a penny, we had an interim payment of 5,000 but we had to pay the first solicitor all of that money
and more to enable us to dismiss him. We had three solicitors representing this case and all of them fought on behalf of Costco you would have thought we were the enemy. Beware of accidents in huge companies like this because my wife was denied her rightful treatment for head injury because the consultants at the top had hidden all her documents, so that it would never appear when the case was about. Six years after the accident, The rehabilitation hospital at Edgware Road
wrote to us saying due to your wife’s recent accident we have booked an appointment to see us, the wonderful consultants there told me that there is no records of Mary’s accident, they said we thought she just had an accident this is six years later before they had the decency to try to give her rehabilitation. But by then I do not trust them to leave my wife in their care for six weeks, No way.
If you are interested the description above has my hub page link it explains to the current date what is happening, we have MP Andy Love looking into this matter for us but he has taken an extremely long while doing so. (They have even manage to get YouTube to remove some of my videos)colinberry1 28 minutes ago. http://colinberry1.amplify.com/2011/05/27/hi-just-like-to-say-that-i-was-there-on%EF%BB%BF-the-day-this-happened/
I feel that I have to publish this link here for my friends to watch it may help you and your family one day to realise that our society cannot be trusted when it comes to making money. Please watch. Cancer Is Serious Business http://vimeo.com/24821365
Poohgranma, probably this may help you understand why huge corporations have so much of power in the UK, when groups in the UK that claims to take action are not quite as determined as they claim to be. Pretty sad. click the link below, my hub seem to pose a threat to these group fearing that they will be closed down. http://www.scribd.com/doc/70002086/The-Consumer-Action-Groups

Dear Andy Love MP
I have not heard from you since our last e-mail 7 September 2011 it seems as if that your department has not the ability to obtain answers from the information I have given to you.
All we ask is, what is the requirement needed for Mary Berry to
Obtain money that is due to her, and for her to pay Colin Berry for caring for her because he had to close his business.
Considering that Mary Berry is a victim of negligence, her solicitors have been paid a sum of £400,000 and the injured party Mary Berry has not received her compensation, if your department cannot deal with this matter, please inform me and direct me to the correct department that could bring this matter to an end.
Bearing in mind that Mary Berry or Colin Berry has not received any income since the accident in 2003 and has limited financial resources to obtain private help.
Mary Berry has not received any written information demanding the requirement of the courts, considering that the court has demanded whatever that is needed we do not have that information it may be that we have to approach the police department for advise on the clarity of this matter. We have approached the court clerk for information but they referred us to another department that did not have any information, we approach the court appointed solicitor that was never there, could it be that this money has gone missing and these departments are ducking and diving away from us.
It seemed to me that there have been a breach of human rights, and information that should have been sent to Mary Berry she has not received, information on whatever requirements needed. It also seems that Mary Berry the victim of negligence is on trial to produce something that we do not know the requirements.
Colin & Mary Berry.

What boils my blood the most is what some people get for getting their phone hacked, http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/murdochs-100m-plan-to-settle-hacking-cases-before-they-get-to-court-6282554.html
and the value they put on my wife's accident which we have not received or know the amount she was awarded, after waiting since 2003 for her compensation to be released or settle.
