My Solicitor Made Mistakes
It is a fact of life that in any walk of life things can go wrong. This applies equally to your solicitor. Where things go wrong it is important that you act fast. See below for how we can help you when you believe your solicitor has made a mistake.
My solicitor has told me to seek independent legal advice because he has missed the three year limitation period. What does this mean and what should I do?
If proceedings are not issued within three years of the date of the accident then you might lose the right to claim. Whenever a solicitor makes a mistake they are under a professional obligation to tell you so that you can seek independent legal advice. If there is nothing that can be done to put things right, then a claim can be brought against your solicitor in negligence. It is important that if this happens to you that you act quickly.
