Yes a lawyer will be the best person to advice you on the merits of the case . What I am concerned with now is the legal costs. You should make it clear that you would like to keep legal costs low especially at this early stage where you are not sure if there is a case to pursue. It may be that he will offer to use junior lawyers form Bombay on issues that do not require his personal attention (as a way to keep costs down).
I am not sure how the fee structure in India works, but it may be possible that if this escalates, he may agree to accept a lower fee if nothing comes out of it, but will, in return be paid a higher fee if he manages to win a certain degree of compensation form this women , for your suffering.
These are just ideas, but definitely highlight your concern with regards to costs during your initial discussions with him, and he should be responsible enough to take you through the options.
Do contact me if you have any questions. Also, just note that I am acting purely in a personal capacity on this matter, and none of this concerns my firm in any way.
PS : do you really want a 30 rupees per hour man dealing with this matter , you may consider getting a burger flipper to chip in aswel . At £245 per hour you will have the personal attention of someone can help .
