Clients rely on solicitors handling their case to ensure that all paperwork needed for an application to the court is prepared on time. If a solicitor misses the deadline for serving a claim, it can prejudice a case and affect a client’s claim. As the result of a missed deadline, a client may not have access to justice unless the court agrees to extend the limitation period for making a claim. This is not very common.
Duncan Lewis’s professional negligence solicitors can offer an expert assessment of any claim in which a solicitor has missed a deadline. We have access to our own in-house experts across several areas of law, who can help to pinpoint when a solicitor is liable for failing a client due to a missed deadline in a range of different areas of law.
Professional negligence cases can be daunting; Duncan Lewis understands that a client who has recently had a bad experience with a solicitor may be hesitant to approach a firm of solicitors for advice. However, we are one of the UK’s leading firms of claims solicitors and we have a successful track record for professional negligence claims.
If a case has gone wrong because a solicitor missed a deadline and provided a negligent service that resulted in a loss, call Duncan Lewis’s professional negligence team of solicitors for more information about making a compensation claim on 020 7923 4020.
