Duncan Lewis Professional Negligence Solicitors’ wealth of experience in the area of personal injury law enables them to offer the best claims service to clients thinking about suing a solicitor who is negligent and has caused them further loss – including a negligent solicitor who underestimated the value of a personal injury claim or failed to assess the costs of future care adequately.


Making a Professional Negligence Claim


Clients who suffer financial loss or other loss as a result of a solicitor who is negligent should first make a complaint through the solicitor’s own complaints procedure.


The Legal Ombudsman can also adjudicate in cases where a solicitor is negligent in a matter relating to a personal injury claim, but any compensation awarded may be modest.


Clients considering suing a solicitor for professional negligence have six years from the date of the event constituting negligence – or three years from the date they first realised negligence had occurred – in which to make a compensation claim.


Funding for Personal Injury Case Professional Negligence Claims


Duncan Lewis lawyers offer professional negligence clients a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) to fund claims.


Duncan Lewis also offers a fixed fee to cover the costs of the initial client meeting and case assessment – so our professional negligence clients know from the outset how much they will have to pay.
