Professional Negligence claims against Trade Unions, Advice Centres and other Legal Advisers

Claims Against Trade Unions, Advice Centres and other Legal AdvisersIf you have suffered a significant loss as a result of the negligence of an adviser or lawyer working either for themselves or for a private advice firm or through a Trade Union, Claims Company or Advice Centre you will not only have suffered a loss but will rightly feel badly let down. It may seem a daunting prospect to seek any redress or compensation as claims against Advisers and Lawyers are known to be complex and difficult and the adviser or lawyer or the Trade Union, Advice firm, Claims Company or Advice Centre may well have Insurers and an experienced legal team ready to fight the case.

However if the Adviser or Lawyer or the Advice Firm , Claims Company, Advice Centre or Trade Union has been negligent and caused you a significant loss you should be able to recover the compensation you deserve, through a professional negligence claim against the adviser or organisation concerned.

We have a substantial amount of experience in assessing cases involving Lawyers and Advisers giving legal advice or quasi legal advice involving negligence and have successfully pursued many cases involving Lawyers and Advisers’ negligence. The nature of a professional negligence case against a Solicitor or Barrister is very similar to a case against another lawyer or quasi legal professional because the standard of care expected of the professional is that of a similar reasonably competent legal practitioner. Our expertise and experience enables us to assess and pursue such cases in the same way. This also applies with some adjustment for the expected standard of care to other people or organisations providing legal advice including Trade Unions, Claims Companies, Advice Centres and unqualified employment advisors or advocates.

Whatever the professional standing or nature of the organisation or individual, if they were providing legal advice or assistance to you and caused you a significant loss a claim can be made against them in negligence to recover the losses caused by them. 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 the Adviser, Lawyer, Trade Union, Claims Company, Advice Centre, quasi- Lawyer, or organisation involved.

Although there are almost limitless different types of case where there could be a claim against an Adviser, Trade Union, Claims Company, Advice Centre, Lawyer or other quasi legal professional the most usual types include:

An employment adviser or advocate giving you negligent advice or representation – see Employment Solicitors Negligence Claims. A Will writer or Probate practitioner or Trust Corporation acting negligently in the writing of Wills or in the Administration of Estates or Trusts. – see Estates and Trusts Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims.
Trade Union or Advice Centre giving negligent advice or representation in an Employment claim- see Employment Solicitors Negligence Claims. Trade Union or Advice Centre giving negligent legal advice on any subject – see relevant Solicitors Negligence section.
A Claims Company negligently causing your claim to be lost or damaged – See Disputes & Litigation Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims and Personal Injury Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims and Clinical (Medical) Negligence Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims. Immigration Adviser negligently conducting an immigration matter – see Immigration Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims.

It is important to use an experienced team when it comes to making any sort of claim against an Advice Firm, Advice Centre, Trade Union, Claims Company, Adviser or other quasi legal professional because these cases are often complex and difficult and their Insurers will use many legal arguments to challenge your claim. When a case goes wrong there are often difficult aspects to the case, which led the Adviser to make a mistake. This gives the Insurers the opportunity to argue that not only was there no negligence, but even if there was, your case would not have succeeded or obtained the outcome which you say was lost by the Adviser or other quasi legal professional.

What Our Clients Say

All of this took over five years, without making any progress and proving very expensive so I decided I would look further afield for another solicitor to help in my search for justice. That is when my luck changed! I approached Matthew Wilkinson, I told him my story and he agreed to represent … Mr R, Manchester
