Frequently Asked Questions – Professional Negligence
You can make a claim within six years of the negligence occurring. However if you were unaware of the negligence, you can claim within three years of realising the problem.
As this is such a complicated issue, it’s important to act quickly. Our professional negligence solicitors are on hand for a free consultation so you know if you can make a claim.
Your first consultation with our professional negligence solicitors is completely free. They’ll then be able to advise you on your funding options which may include a no win no fee agreement.
During your initial free consultation, our team will try to establish whether or not to progress your claim. If we are able to help, you’ll then be advised on funding options and whether or not you qualify for a no win no fee agreement.
We’ll then need to review the original papers to confirm we can progress with your claim. This is especially important in solicitor negligence claims. Any paperwork you have including contracts, letters or emails of correspondence will be very helpful.
Once we’ve firmly established that you do have a claim, our team will set about building your case and work towards securing you compensation.
