If you have previously settled a personal injury claim but have since come to question whether the amount you received is too low, it may be possible to make a claim against your former solicitor. If your claim was settled in the last 6 years for an amount of £10,000 or above, our solicitors can advise you free of charge as to whether you may have a claim.
Making a Claim against a Personal Injury Solicitor
If you have received a settlement for a personal injury or medical negligence claim in the past 6 years that you now feel may be too low for the true value of the claim, our solicitors can help.
Farleys has a team of solicitors who specialise in bringing claims against other firms of solicitors who have acted negligently in dealing with a personal injury claim. If it is proven that you have been wrongly advised to accept a low settlement, or indeed
inadequate legal advice on any aspect of your claim, it may be possible to make a claim and receive further damages.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of suing your personal injury solicitor, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free of charge discussion. We will review your file free of charge and will thereafter be able to advise you on the merits of pursuing a claim.
Common Reasons to Sue Your Personal Injury Solicitor
It is a solicitor’s duty to act in the best interests of their client at all times. Increasingly, when clients instruct a non-specialist firm to deal with their personal injury claim, or when an individual lawyer lacks the necessary skill or experience to conduct the case properly, this duty is not upheld. For example, we have acted for clients that were advised to accept settlements for much lower values than the claims were ultimately worth.
You may have a case for suing your previous solicitor if you have instructed a firm to deal with your case and they have:
- under-settled your claim;
- missed a limitation date;
- failed to adhere to a Court Order;
- failed to obtain Court approval where necessary;
- given you negligent advice.
