If you lose out because you’ve received wrong or inaccurate advice or your lawyer has made mistakes, you have the right to claim compensation.
Understand your rights
When you put your trust in a qualified professional, you rely on their expertise to do a good job. While the majority of personal injury lawyers provide their clients with excellent service, there are some whose service falls short or claims are under-settled.
Personal injury lawyers owe you a ‘duty of care’ when advising you throughout the course of your claim. If you feel the advice you have been given is inadequate or errors have been made, you have a case against them and could receive compensation for Professional Negligence.
How it happens
There are many reasons why some law firms fail in their duty of care. Here are just some:
- Deadlines being missed
- Failing to gather appropriate medical evidence
- Not understanding the full extent of injuries
- Incorrectly calculating loss of earnings
- Ending cases prematurely and not taking account of full recovery times
Help is at hand
At Novum Law, we understand how distressing it can be to feel you have been let down by the personal injury lawyer you have put all your trust in. It is only natural to feel wary about putting your faith in another law firm. But if you don’t, you could be left out of pocket. You may also leave other personal injury victims to suffer a similar fate at the hands of a negligent legal team.
That’s why it is vital to speak to specialist lawyers with experience in Professional Negligence cases who can advise and help you make a successful claim. It’s important to bear in mind that Professional Negligence claims can only be brought within 6 years of the date when the damage in question was suffered. This means from the date of settlement or when the deadline was missed.
