Professional negligence employment cases can involve a range of disputes with professionals, including a negligent solicitor who:
In a professional negligence claim relating to an employment matter, it is crucial that a claims solicitor also has expert knowledge of employment law – and can advise on issues such as unfair dismissal, or breaches of a worker’s employment rights under UK employment law, employment breaches under the Human Rights Act.
Duncan Lewis solicitors have access to the firm’s own in-house employment lawyers to advise on employment cases involving professional negligence – and Duncan Lewis employment solicitors act on behalf of both claimants and respondents in all Employment Tribunal-related matters.
Duncan Lewis’ successful track record in fighting employment law cases can help pinpoint exactly where another solicitor might have been negligent in handling an employment case.
Duncan Lewis is also one of the UK’s leading claims firms and Human Rights lawyers, with a solid background in representing clients in professional negligence cases – including employment claims where a solicitor gave the wrong advice, or a solicitor missed a deadline in an employment case.
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 employment law 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 claim.
Duncan Lewis understands that suing a solicitor can be a daunting prospect, especially after the trauma of having to take legal action over an employment issue, such as unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal.
Duncan Lewis professional negligence solicitors take a tough stance in making a claim against a negligent solicitor who has let a client down in an employment case – and will press for maximum compensation.
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.
