Failing to obtain Evidence Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims

Failing to obtain Evidence Solicitors Negligence ClaimsIf you have suffered a loss through negligent litigation services, when the proceedings have been lost or damaged, due to errors in obtaining evidence or preparing the case for Trial, you will not only have suffered a significant loss but will also rightly feel let down. When things go badly wrong it can be very traumatic and stressful and it can seem very difficult and daunting to obtain legal redress for your loss, particularly when your Solicitor is the one to have caused you the loss.

The preparation of a case for Trial in a Civil or Employment claim or indeed in a Criminal or Family case is a very important part of your Solicitors work. The consideration of your instructions, the application of the relevant law and procedure, the collation, consideration and preparation of relevant documents and the obtaining of witnesses of fact and experts are each hugely important. Unfortunately errors in this work sometimes occur and it can have a very damaging effect upon your case, leading either to a less favourable result or worse still the loss of your case. In these circumstances we are confident that we can help you obtain proper redress and compensation for your loss in a professional negligence claim against your Solicitor.

Although there are several different types of case where the claim could be lost or damaged as a result of your Solicitor failing to obtain evidence the most usual types include:

Failing to inspect or use the other side’s documents Failing to serve on the other side your expert Report or Witness statements or other important evidence which has been obtained
Failing where relevant to make proper enquiries and obtain medical evidence as to an effect on your earning capacity Failing where relevant to obtain up to date evidence as to your condition and prognosis for the future
Failing to make proper enquiries and obtain evidence as to a loss of earnings or other loss identified from your instructions Failing to disclose or include important evidence in the Trial Bundles so that it is not used
Failing to contact witnesses Failing to serve a Witness summons or Hearsay Notice
Failing to prepare or obtain signed witness Statements Relying on a written statement when oral evidence was required
Failing to call a witness to Trial Failing to obtain, use or disclose relevant documents
Failing to obtain expert evidence from the right expert or on the correct issues or at all Failing to give proper instructions to or ask the correct questions of an expert
Failing to understand or act upon your instructions Failing to act upon a Barrister’s advice on evidnece

It is important to use an experienced team when it comes to making any sort of claim against a Solicitor or other legal professional because these cases are often complex and difficult and the Solicitors and Lawyers’ Insurers will use many legal arguments to challenge your claim. This is particularly important when the subject matter of the claim is Litigation services. When a Litigation claim, defence or dispute goes wrong there are often difficult aspects to the case, which led the Solicitor to make a mistake. This gives the Solicitors’ Insurers the opportunity to argue that not only was there no negligence, but also even if there was, your claim or defence would not have succeeded or you would not have obtained the outcome, which you say, was lost by the Solicitor.
