Do you think your injury claim was worth more than what you settled it for?
Are you unhappy with how the claim was dealt with?
Do you feel the solicitor didn’t handle the claim correctly?
Then you may be entitled to bring a professional negligence claim against the lawyers who handled your personal injury case.
Sadly, with pressure on law firms from the insurance industry, the judiciary and the government to reduce the cost of making a compensation claim, personal injury cases are increasingly being dealt with by unqualified staff with inadequate supervision. There is also the added burden upon them to turn cases around as quickly as possible to avoid cash flow problems. This means that in many instances, key indicators are missed and mistakes are made. Injuries are frequently given insufficient time to stabilise before clients are pressured into settling their claim.
If you have been placed under pressure to accept an offer that you feel was too low or you believe that aspects of your injury claim have been overlooked, you may be able to seek compensation from your solicitor for professional negligence. Even if the award seemed generous at the time but you were hurried into accepting it and now further symptoms have developed, you may have a claim against your solicitor.
At Slee Blackwell, our team of Professional Negligence Lawyers have extensive experience of claiming compensation for clients who have been let down by a personal injury lawyer. Professional negligence solicitor Emma Slade was previously employed as a lawyer dealing with accident and clinical negligence claims. She therefore has a unique insight on these claims and is able to bring a wealth of experience and skill to this specialist area, including claims for undersettling.
So, if you feel that your personal injury claim has been under settled or your accident lawyer has let you down then call our FREE legal helpline on freephone 0808 139 1595 or email us at [email protected]
