Our Panel Of No Win No Fee Professional Negligence Solicitors Could Help You Claim 

If you have decided to make a No Win No Fee professional negligence claim, it can be difficult to know where to start. Such claims can be complex, and the onus will be on you to prove how the professional has been negligent. Deciding to work with a professional negligence solicitor can ensure that your claim is filed in full and that all your losses are included. Below we have provided a list, albeit not exhaustive, of how a professional negligence solicitor could be of benefit to you when pursuing a claim:

  • Collecting the correct evidence for your case
  • Meeting each pre-action protocol
  • Corresponding with the defendant
  • Keeping you updated on the status of your case
  • Explaining legal jargon
  • Giving you an idea of the amount of compensation you could receive
  • Representing your case if it should go to court

A professional negligence solicitor from our panel may agree to take on your case if they believe that it has a reasonably good chance of success. Please note that the solicitors on our panel offer their service on a No Win No Fee basis, which we discuss further down in this guide. 

The following section will help to define what professional negligence is and provide you with examples of instances that could lead to you being eligible to make a claim against a professional. For more information on the benefits that professional negligence solicitors can bring to your claim though, contact us by using the information above. 

What Is Professional Negligence And When Are You Eligible To Claim? 

When a professional is negligent, this means that they have breached or failed to uphold the duty of care that they owe to their client. This can happen in a variety of professions, which we’ll be exploring in greater detail in the next section of this guide.

In order to make a professional negligence claim, you will need to satisfy the criteria of eligibility:

  • A professional owed you a duty of care
  • The professional breached this duty of care through omission or action,
  • And as a result of this, you suffered losses.

To make a professional negligence claim, you will need to provide evidence that will show why this professional owed you a duty of care, this could be through a contract of service. Evidence will also be needed to show how that professional failed to provide you with the correct standard of services (breach of duty) and what losses this caused you.

For more information or to receive a free consultation pertaining to your potential professional negligence claim, you can use the contact information provided above to discuss this in more detail with our team of advisors. 

What Types Of Professionals Can You Claim Against? 

Other than solicitors, the other professionals that you could potentially make a claim against include:

  • Financial Advisors
  • Surveyors
  • Accountants
  • Engineers
  • Architects

It’s important to note that this isn’t a complete list, and there are many other different types of professionals that you may be able to make a claim against, providing that their negligent actions resulted in losses. Consequently, if you have any further questions in regard to your eligibility, use the above information to learn more. 

When Could You Claim For Professional Negligence Against Solicitors?  

When making a claim for professional negligence against a personal injury or medical negligence solicitor again, you will need to be able to meet each element of the eligibility criteria. To help you decide if you have a valid professional negligence claim against a solicitor, we have provided some examples of how a solicitor could breach their duty of care and it result in a loss of a chance for their client. 

Examples of professional negligence by a solicitor include:

  • Under-settling your claim – If your personal injury solicitor forgot to include your loss of earnings in your claim, this could lead you to suffer financial losses. 
  • Missing the limitation date – Your claim may become statute-barred if your solicitor missed the limitation date. In standard civil cases, a solicitor needs to start legal proceedings before the applicable time limit has passed. 
  • Struck out – In some cases, a failure to comply with the court deadlines or the instructions laid down by the court may see the court strike out the claim. This will mean that the claimant will no longer be able to pursue the case. Sometimes the whole claim may not be struck out but only part of it. 

For more examples of professional negligence from a solicitor, contact us to learn more. 

How Much Compensation Could You Recieve From A Professional Negligence Claim? 

Payouts for professional negligence will differ from case to case. The damages a claimant receives for a solicitor being negligent will be different to the payout for an architect providing a negligent service. However, successful claims of all types will aim to restore the claimant to the position that they would’ve been in had the professional provided the correct standard of service to the claimant.

Claim Type Potential Payout
Solicitor Negligence Up to £120,000+
Financial Advisor Negligence Up to £500,000+
Surveyor Negligence Up to £80,000+
Accountant Negligence Up to £250,000+
Engineer Negligence Up to £180,000+

 

In order to receive this compensation, you’ll have to provide evidence to prove that you suffered as a result of professional negligence. The central piece of evidence is correspondence from the defendant explaining the error that they’ve made.

As well as this though, other evidence that you can use includes documentation relating to the initial work done and evidence of how errors were made. If you’re struggling to gather evidence to support your claim, then a professional negligence solicitor from our panel can help you collect evidence as part of the service they provide.

Providing that you have a valid claim, as stated above, you can choose to receive legal representation from a professional negligence solicitor on our panel under a No Win No Fee agreement. Please note that you are not limited to using solicitors in your area, you can choose to work with a solicitor that has the expertise your claim needs.

No Win No Fee agreements come with a variety of different benefits, the first of which is that you won’t have to pay any upfront or ongoing fees for your legal representation. As well as this, in the scenario that you’re unsuccessful in your claim, you also won’t have to pay anything for your representation. 

You may be wondering how much No Win No Fee solicitors charge. If you’re successful in your claim, you’ll have to pay a success fee. This is a legally capped percentage which is discussed in The Conditional Fees Agreements Order 2013. This percentage will be discussed between you and your legal representative before you begin receiving any representation.
