solicitor negligence frequently asked questions

If you believe your solicitor has been negligent, and has as a result caused you financial harm, it’s important to seek legal advice from somewhere else. Suing a lawyer for professional negligence may be the route you’re advised to take, and as such you’ll need legal guidance throughout.
If you’re unsure about how to sue a solicitor for negligence, as mentioned above it’s imperative that you speak to a legal professional. You can sue solicitors for professional negligence but it’s important to get an understanding of how likely it is your claim will succeed, the steps you’ll need to take, and the timescales in which you need to take them.
To make a claim for solicitor professional negligence, you must be in time, which is known as the ‘professional negligence limitation period’. Generally, if your solicitor has failed to perform to the professional standards required of them, and you have suffered damage or loss as a result, you have six years from the date of the negligence occurring. There can be exceptions to this time limit, for example if you were not aware of the negligence until a later date. However it is important to seek legal advice as early as possible to avoid any issues with limitation dates.
There are several common scenarios where a solicitor could let you down. See below for examples of solicitor negligence:
  • Incorrectly valuing your claim
  • Failing to collect appropriate evidence for your claim
  • Giving advice that is inaccurate
Claims against solicitors are an option for individuals who have unfortunately experienced negligence of this kind.
