What is Solicitor Negligence?
Professionals such as Solicitors, Accountants, Financial Advisers and Surveyors are often relied on for advice and support by Businesses and Individuals. Sometimes this trust and advice can result in a loss or unwelcome consequences such as a loss on investments following negligent financial advice. You must be able to establish that the professional’s conduct fell below the standard of a reasonably competent professional in the same area of expertise and that this breach caused your loss.
What types of cases does Solicitor Negligence cover?
Solicitors sometimes advise that claims, particularly Fibromyalgia or CRPS claims should be settled for far too little. Solicitor Negligence can also occur when a Solicitor fails properly to investigate claims. For example, during the course of an accident or clinical negligence claim, it is important to instruct experts in the right medical disciplines. If that is not done, the Claimant will frequently receive far too little damages.
