Q&A - Should I accept the insurer’s compensation offer for crash injuries?

Q: I was a passenger in a work colleague’s car when he skidded off the road and the car overturned. I can’t say I had life-threatening injuries but I was badly bruised and I broke my wrist which meant I couldn’t work for almost two months. A friend advised me to claim injury compensation so I contacted a law firm who advertise on line and they took all the details and made a claim on my behalf. They have now written to me to say they have received an offer from the driver’s insurers. The offer was, however, a lot lower than I had been led to expect, but they say if I don’t accept it I will get even less. Is this what usually happens?

Q&A - Father did not appoint executors or get Will correctly witnessed. Is it invalid?

Q: After my father passed away recently we found his Will amongst his paperwork. In it he leaves the bulk of his estate in varying ways to me and my brother, as our step-mother died a few years ago, plus some bequests to extended family members. The problem is that he doesn’t appear to have appointed any executors and the Will only bears the signature of one witness. My step-brother says the Will is only valid if it has been witnessed and signed by two people. Is this true and if it is, what are the implications of it being invalid?
