Solicitors Negligence


No two solicitors negligence claims are ever the same. Different issues arise in each case, which is what makes this area of law so fascinating. However, there are a number of scenarios that crop up on a regular basis. Here are some of the usual suspects:-

Your solicitor has:

  • missed the limitation date
  • under settled your personal injury claim
  • deducted money from your compensation without good reason which is very common
  • failed to ensure you have protection against paying your opponent costs
  • failed to explore all avenues of mediation leading to costs being awarded against you
  • caused your claim to be struck out by the court
  • failed to identify a defect in the title to your property
  • made an error in drafting a lease
  • sued the wrong party
  • failed to administer a deceased’s estate correctly
  • failed to serve a notice on your behalf by a given deadline
  • failed to advise you about planning permission and building regulations
  • failed to draft a will properly

There could be 101 reasons as to why you may feel that you have been let down by your former solicitor.  If you are unsure, then do not hesitate in contacting this office for a free no obligation consultation.
