Probate Law Complex Sotuation
14 replies 641 views
My sister had learning and physical disabilities, she was left with fatal injuries due to someone’s negligence. We opened a claim as a litigation friend as she did not have the capacity to do this herself. For the same reason she could not make a will and passed away before the claim was settled. My mum then obtained letters of administration and reopened her case. My mum then died of cancer before the claim was settled leaving a will naming me and my younger sister as executors. We are now being told we cannot continue the claim as the chain of representation has been broken and only her father can claim (he has been absent since 1979 and we have no contact for him) I have sought advice from other solicitors who disagree with the current solicitors. Does anyone know who is correct here? TIA
