Professional Negligence Solicitors In Lambeth
With more than 30 years’ combined practical experience, we understand how legal cases and transactions should proceed. Our solicitors place a huge emphasis in their own work on paying close attention to detail and ensuring they fully understand the background of every case. As a result, they can quickly spot where a solicitor has acted negligently.
Examples of negligence by solicitors include:
- A failure to observe time limits — In personal injury claims and other litigation cases, strict deadlines are imposed on all sides. If these are not met, your case can be dismissed, resulting in the loss of any financial claim you may have had.
- Incorrect or inadequate property searches — A failure to correctly analyse the results of land registry and other searches in property transactions can have serious repercussions for purchasers.
- A failure to investigate key evidence — In personal injury claims, landlord and tenant disputes and other cases, solicitors have a duty to make all reasonable enquiries on behalf of their clients.
- Recommending the acceptance of an inadequate offer of compensation — When you accept an offer of compensation, it is unlikely that you will be able to seek further damages. If your solicitor advises you to accept an offer of settlement that does not reflect the full extent of your losses, you may be able to pursue a negligence claim.
Most of our cases in this area involve claims against solicitors. We also have extensive experience handling other professional negligence cases, including claims of clinical negligence.
