What is professional negligence?

A solicitor has a responsibility to handle a personal injury claim to a required standard. If this is not met, and the professional fails in their duty of care to a client, a professional negligence claim may be made against the solicitor.

If you feel that you may have a professional negligence case against a solicitor from another law firm, Thompsons Solicitors can help with many types of claims, including:

  • Turned down claims
  • Under-settled claims
  • Failed claims
  • Improper handling of claims
  • Unexpected deductions from claims.
