Professional Negligence Claims
We all make mistakes and solicitors are no exception. You should always instruct someone who is a specialist or has experience in a particular type of legal matter. Personal Injury is no different. It is a very specialist area. Solicitors acting on your behalf for a personal injury claim should do so with all the due care, skill, competence and diligence you would expect of a professional.
Types of Solicitor Negligence
There could be various reasons you wish to make a claim against your previous solicitor for professional negligence, for example:
- starting Court proceedings after the expiry of time limits allowed by the law
- failing to include all of your losses so that you are out of pocket at the end of the claim
- being given unreasonable advice
Although rare, an inexperienced solicitor could also undervalue your injury. For example, you may have a contractual obligation with your employer or a private health insurer to include anything they have paid out for lost earnings or medical care. This can be forgotten but you may still have to pay it back out of your compensation, even if your solicitor forgot to put it in.
If your claim goes wrong, seek advice from alternative solicitors to help recover the compensation you deserve with a professional negligence claim.
