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.

  • I was really impressed with the team at Brian Barr helping me to achieve a settlement for my claim for fibromyalgia which was caused as a result of a car accident. I was kept well informed all the way through the process and was able to have “jargon free” conversations with Brian and Counsel about my case. Brian always made me feel at ease, even when the litigation process was frustrating and difficult at times. Brian also found me a fantastic CBT therapist which has really helped with some of my day-to-day struggles. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Brian Barr Solicitors.

  • I would like to thank Alex Cohen and his team for bringing my personal injury case to a satisfactory conclusion recently. I contacted Brian Barr Solicitors almost 2 years after my accident following a total dissatisfaction with my previous solicitor. This immediately put Alex under a great deal of pressure to get the case accessed and prepared to court within weeks, which was achieved by the skin of our teeth. 3.5 years later and it’s all over, but the important thing to note here is that without the understanding of the complexity of chronic pain syndrome and fibromyalgia in this complicated case, it would have fallen away a long time ago, without Alex’s expertise, his meticulous attention to detail, along with the overall quality and professionalism of all involved.  The medical experts that Brian Barr have used on my case have been incredible and they truly understand the mechanics of the complaint. The barrister on my case was Marcus Grant and again was also very calming and explained all the potential hurdles along the way.

    Alex and his team have got time for you, you actually forget that they are your acting solicitor, a friendship has been built up, and when you are getting worried or dragged down on so many occasions Katie helped me get through the sticky patches with her empathy with the effects of pain (she gets it) many thanks Katie you’re a gem!

    If you are anywhere in the UK and you are looking for a quality solicitor firm which specialises in Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia, look no further than Brian Barr Solicitors – believe me you’re in safe hands.

  • I hope you’re well and safe Steven. The past 1,838 days have been a pleasure to get to know you and work with yourself, Sophie and Brian Barr Solicitors. Not only do I feel I made the right choice in choosing Brian Barr, I couldn’t be happier having yourself and Fiona as my counsel. This was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through as it was never my intention for the first year to seek litigation, but you made the process as smooth, reassuring and simple as possible. Myself and my wife are truly grateful for everything you’ve done for us.

     

    Mr C
