Professional Negligence Claims Against Solicitors
Solicitors, lawyers and barristers are highly trained professionals working in a highly regulated industry designed to protect consumers. Standards in the industry are generally high and most solicitors deal with their clients in an efficient and competent manner. However, as in any profession, there are times when things go wrong.
If you feel you have been let down by a solicitor acting on your behalf, you may need to take advice from a team with professional negligence expertise.
Some common areas of complaint that lead to professional negligence claims include:
- Missing an important deadline
- Under settling a personal injury compensation claim
- Filing incorrect paperwork
- Failed to take a vital step on your behalf which caused your case to be unsuccessful
- Suing the wrong person
- Errors in drafting a Will
- Failures in relation to planning permission
The consequences of such mistakes can not only be very costly financially but can also lead to further legal complexities that need resolving, wasted time and unnecessary stress.
Solicitors are required to act in your best interests, and they can be held liable if they fail to do so.
For larger complaints, our own Professional Negligence Lawyers can help you recover any losses you have suffered when your legal advisor has failed to meet the required standards.
