Anyone can make a mistake, but a mistake by your lawyer can have a serious impact on your case.
The most common type of solicitors negligence is missing a deadline needed to pursue your case or missing a time limit set by the court. The solicitor may have missed crucial evidence that affects your claim. The solicitor may have made a mistake on the type of claim you should bring or, your solicitor simply lacks the expertise to advise you properly on how best to pursue your case.
There are strict time limits for starting court proceedings. If your solicitor fails to issue court proceedings within the relevant period you may be able to bring a claim for damages.
