What is Solicitor Negligence?

Professionals such as Solicitors, Accountants, Financial Advisers and Surveyors are often relied on for advice and support by Businesses and Individuals. Sometimes this trust and advice can result in a loss or unwelcome consequences such as a loss on investments following negligent financial advice. You must be able to establish that the professional’s conduct fell below the standard of a reasonably competent professional in the same area of expertise and that this breach caused your loss.

What types of cases does Solicitor Negligence cover?

Solicitors sometimes advise that claims, particularly Fibromyalgia or CRPS claims should be settled for far too little. Solicitor Negligence can also occur when a Solicitor fails properly to investigate claims. For example, during the course of an accident or clinical negligence claim, it is important to instruct experts in the right medical disciplines. If that is not done, the Claimant will frequently receive far too little damages.

Businesses and individuals frequently rely on the advice and skills of professionals such as solicitors, accountants, financial advisors and surveyors. However, sometimes the reliance and trust placed upon these professionals can result in a loss or unwelcome consequences to a business or individual. For example, an individual or business may suffer a loss on investments following negligent financial advice.

A solicitor negligence claim can vary in its worth. The value of your claim against a solicitor is like all professional negligence claims; it varies greatly depending on many factors, including your personal circumstances and the value of your losses. For example, in our most recent case regarding Mrs R P we recovered nearly £1 million in her settlement after her solicitor undersettled her compensation amount.

Can I sue a solicitor? The simple answer is yes.

Solicitors do make mistakes. When you choose to use the services of a professional solicitor you are relying on their personal expertise to help you get the best outcome possible for your claim.

Mrs R P of Kent was in a road accident. Her solicitors settled the claim on the basis that she had a whiplash injury. In fact, it was clear from her medical records that she had developed fibromyalgia. We obtained all her medical records and an independent rheumatologist’s report.

  • Highly recommend this firm for their expertise in fibromyalgia. I am eternally grateful for all the hard work and care taken in supporting me during one of the most challenging periods of my life. Thank you.

  • I would absolutely recommend Brian Barr Solicitors. They looked after me after the previous solicitor’s would not listen as my health was taking a rapid turn downward because of fibromyalgia issues. Brian Barr’s diligence meant I had a suitable conclusion for the nature of my car accident.

  • Steven, I want to say how very much grateful I am to you, and Mr Brian Barr, and all staff at Brian Barr solicitors, and everyone who has helped me find justice, without you all I don’t know where I would be, you are all truly amazing people because you care about others, keep doing what you are doing because it means the world to have a team of people who care, thank you all so very much, and for keeping me going throughout all of this. Thank you Steven so very, much.

    Ursula Upson

  • Alex Cohen and his team were nothing but amazing. They fully explained everything I needed to know throughout my entire case (which was just over 5 years!) with a great deal of compassion and care. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brian Barr solicitors if a member of my family or friend ever needed it.
