Professional Negligence Claims Lawyers Malton, York & Wetherby
If you have been badly advised or represented by a professional, such as an accountant, valuer, architect or solicitor, Pearsons & Wardprofessional negligence claims solicitors can help.
Even when you take care to obtain professional advice, the adviser you use may make mistakes.
Fortunately not all of these mistakes result in a loss to you. Some mistakes are not sufficiently serious for the law to regard as negligent, but they may amount to poor service.
Pearsons & WardDispute Resolution Solicitors advise and represent clients who have suffered from negligence or poor service from professionals.
There are time limits for bringing claims against professionals. The normal time limit is 6 years from the date of the negligent act which caused you loss. If you think you might have a claim, it is, therefore, important that you seek professional advice promptly.
Similarly there are sometimes time limits for referring complaints to professional bodies.
Our solicitors are experienced in helping you to go down the right route to seek a remedy for what has gone wrong. This saves you time, money and unnecessary stress.
We are happy to provide a without obligation preliminary assessment of your claim.
We will discuss with you at the outset the funding of your claim, including protecting yourself against the risk of having to pay your opponent's costs, if your claim is unsuccessful.
However, for most claims, it is our experience that negotiation produces a satisfactory outcome for clients.
There is, in any event, a protocol to comply with, when bringing a claim against a professional, and it is expected that you make reasonable efforts to try to resolve your claim by negotiation before resorting to court proceedings.
It may be more appropriate for you to pursue your grievance by way of a complaint to the adviser. If that is the case, we will tell you and discuss with you any help you may need in pursuing your complaint. It is generally necessary to pursue your complaint with your adviser first. Many professional bodies do offer complaint resolution procedures for complaints which your adviser does not resolve to your satisfaction.
