If you have been let down by a professional, making a negligence claim against them may seem like a daunting task; but it doesn't need to be. Our specilaist lawyers have a first class track record in recovering compensation for people like you on a national basis.
We deal with claims against a range of professionals
Our solicitors pursue claims against all the major professions, including, barristers, surveyors, accountants, financial advisors, valuers, architects and solicitors.
People often assume that solicitors are reluctant to ‘take on’ fellow solicitors. This is not a problem for us. Taking action against solicitors is one of our core areas of practice and we have enjoyed great success over the years in successfully making claims against other legal firms.
The benefits of dealing with specialist solicitors
When you are looking for a professional negligence solicitor it can be difficult to know who to choose. 'Are they genuine solicitors, or just a claims company?' 'How can I trust them?' 'Are they an established legal practice?' These are all common concerns.
We are specialist negligence solicitors you can put your trust in and are:
- Members of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association
- Recommended by the independent legal directory, The Legal 500
- Lexcel accredited by the Law Society for excellence in legal client care.
How we can help you
Our solicitors have years of experience in negligence claims against most professions, so will be able to offer the best legal advice and guidance. To make sure a claim against a professional is as stress-free as possible, we also provide:
- A free claim asssessment service where the financial loss suffered exceeds £10,000. Simply give us brief details of the claim (by email or telephone) and we will provide you our initial views about the legal merits of your claim, indicating whether we feel it is likely to justify further investigation.
- No win no fee funding when there are good prospects of success. Negligence claims are risk assessed on a case-by-case basis and we will discuss with you the most suitable funding options. If we deal with your case on a no win, no fee basis then if you don't win, you will not have to pay our costs. Our track record of success in professional negligence cases gives us the confidence to deal with them like this and our clients often take great comfort in the fact that we are prepared to trust our judgment in this way.
- Legal expenses insurance. This gives our clients 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. The insurance also covers them for expenses that can arise during the course of a case, such as court fees and expert reports.
Strict time limits apply to professional negligence claims. It is 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’ where that is later. However, identifying the limitation date is not always straightforward. By speaking to a specialist solicitor at an early stage you may be able to avoid problems arising at a later date.
