Taking legal action when your solicitor acts negligently

There is no question that solicitors play an important role in a wide variety of legal transactions throughout the United Kingdom. People seek assistance from these professionals because of the expertise they have in matters that the average individual does not. Much of the time the guidance they provide results in a legal transaction being completed without any issues. There are times however where a solicitor may not provide the level of service expected from those in this position. This can manifest itself in many ways, depending on the nature of the legal matter they were hired to handle. 

Where property is concerned negligence may be found in the failure to advise regarding a right of way or neglecting to complete required searches. In other cases it could take the form of failing to properly investigate or prepare a case. Missing deadlines or drafting wills incorrectly could also constitute legal negligence. If you have been injured as a result of your solicitor engaging in behaviours such as these, you may be able to take legal action against that individual.

It can be difficult for some people to make the decision to pursue legal action against a solicitor for negligence. Whether you feel as though you will not succeed or are concerned that you will end up damaging the relationship you have with your solicitor, we understand this. We have helped others in those same situations to sue their solicitors. To learn more about how we help people in this situation please see our website.
