Employment Solicitors Professional Negligence Claims

Employment Solicitors Negligence ClaimsIf you have suffered the double stress and trauma of suffering a loss caused by your Employer and your Solicitor has negligently lost your Employment claim or damaged it as a result of their negligence you will not only have suffered a loss but will rightly feel badly let down.

It is important to realise in these circumstances that not all Solicitors are the same and that if you had a good enough Employment claim which was lost or damaged by a negligent Solicitor you should be able to recover the compensation you deserve, through a professional negligence claim against the Solicitor.

There are many ways that negligence can occur in Employment claims. Some of these include:

Failing to advise as to the correct time limit or Limitation date Failing to contact and use relevant witnesses
Failing to advise on the correct use of Disciplinary or Grievance procedures Failing to advise correctly on Constructive Dismissal /and Re /Resignation issues

Failing to file proceedings or a Response or other document at the Tribunal or Court on time Fail to advise correctly on offers/ settlement proposals
Failing to understand the other side’s case Failing to advise on the correct law or procedure
Causing delays leading to your case being damaged or struck out, or costs Orders being made against you Failing to obtain and use correctly expert evidence when appropriate
Failing to advise on or to claim all heads of loss Failing to value the case correctly
Causing breach of Orders, Rules or Directions leading to your case being damaged or struck out, or costs Orders being made against you Advising you to settle at the wrong figure (an Under- Under- Settlement)
Failing to give the correct costs information and advice Failing to give the correct advice about the merits or risks of the case
Failing to act upon your instructions Failing to advise on an appeal on time or at all
Failing to advise on or use an available Defence Wrong advice on Compromise Agreements

We always put your interests first in trying to achieve the best outcome for you.

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 the case when the subject matter of the claim is a previous Employment claim. When an Employment claim 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 even if there was, your case would not have succeeded or obtained the outcome which you say was lost by the Solicitor.
