When we need legal advice we put our faith in Solicitors and other professionals to guide and help us through the maze of legalese. Solicitors are of course highly trained and dedicated professionals whose job it is to get the best outcome for their clients. However with the best will in the world mistakes and omissions can occur, and of course as with any profession, some Solicitors are better than others. Here at beenletdown.co.uk we specialise in winning professional negligence claims for our client. Our Solicitors have a wealth of experience and knowledge gained across many years in this field.
Legal advice that may be deemed as having been negligent can cover a wide range of issues. Firstly though. It’s important to establish whether your issue is actual negligence or simply more of a complaint.
Does my issue constitute actual negligence?
It’s important to establish that actual negligence has occurred. However in some complex cases negligence can be difficult to determine.
Negligence: Conduct that falls below the standards of behaviour established by law for the protection of others against unreasonable risk of harm. A person has acted negligently if he or she has departed from the conduct expected of a reasonably prudent person acting under similar circumstances.
In other words — If you believe that your Solicitor has not provided advice and service commensurate with what would reasonably be expected of a similarly qualified person on the same field — and that you have suffered some kind of harm or loss as a result (often financial loss or harm), then you may well have a case for negligence.
Professional negligence regarding legal advice can cover a myriad of issues and topics. Therefore it’s best to contact Solicitors that specialise in the area of professional legal negligence to find out if you have a case. All Solicitors are required by the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority to take out professional indemnity insurance which covers the cost of compensation should a claim for negligence be brought against them. This in place to protect both clients and the legal professionals themselves.
