Professional Negligence Compensation Experts

Proneg.co.uk is a specialist legal site operated by professional negligence claim experts, Slee Blackwell Solicitors LLP. We are an established law firm with a first class track record in recovering compensation for people who have been let down by a professional. We are members of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association (PNLA) and are recommended as professional negligence solicitors by the independent legal directory, The Legal 500. We are also Lexcel accredited by the Law Society for excellence in legal client care.

Free Professional Negligence Case Assessment

We offer a FREE professional negligence claim assessment service where the loss suffered exceeds £10,000. Send us brief details of your case and we will give you our initial views about the potential merits of your claim, indicating whether we feel it is a claim that is likely to justify further investigation.

Solicitors Negligence File Reviews

We also provide a file review service in cases of  professional negligence claims against solicitors. Where it is suspected that a solicitor has been negligent it is often necessary to see the solicitors' original file of papers in order to determine whether the case has good prospects of success. The file is likely to contain not only documents you have already seen, but other key papers including important attendance notes that could be critical to the success of your professional negligence claim. We will arrange for the solicitors' file to be released to us so that we can carry out a detailed review. We are often able to undertake this review without charge where we believe a claim is likely to be viable, but if the file is extensive then we do sometimes have to ask for a modest fee.

No Win, No Fee Funding

We  offer No Win, No Fee professional negligence funding for professional negligence claims where there are good prospects of success. Claims are risk assessed on a case by case basis and we will discuss with you the most suitable funding options.

Legal Expenses Insurance

We authorised by a leading legal expenses insurer to offer legal expenses insurance in cases where it is warranted. This gives claimants the peace of mind of knowing that if the case is lost they will be covered for any liability that may arise in respect of their opponent’s legal costs.

Time Limits For Making a Professional Negligence Claim

Strict time limits apply to professional negligence claims, so it’s vitally important not to delay taking legal action as claims can become time barred. The basic limitation period is 6 years, or 3 years from the date of knowledge if that is later. However, identifying the limitation date is not always straightforward. By speaking to a professional negligence solicitor at an early stage you may be able to avoid problems arising at a later date.
