It always feels infuriating when someone tricks you, or you don’t get what you are due. Sometimes, there are times when you are physically and emotionally hurt. It might be that a doctor has been negligent with his treatment or maybe you haven’t received the quality of work you’d expect from a business. During these times, you contact a solicitor for advice. But there are times when a solicitor’s mistake costs you a lot. These sometimes happen due to many reasons. It might be that the solicitor was a fraud or that he wasn’t skilled enough. Laws are governing these incidents. It is stated as solicitor negligence claims.
Can you sue your solicitor?
A solicitor is a man working with the law. But this doesn’t absolve him of his mistakes. Just like any other job, the job of a solicitor has to adhere to certain rules and regulations. Thus a solicitor is not excluded from being sued. In legal terms, there should be a duty of care. If any individual break any of the rules, even after an agreement, he is liable to be fined under the law. You can, therefore, claim compensation for negligence which had cost you money and maybe a lawsuit. Therefore, if you have enough proof that the act of a solicitor can be recognised as a breach of duty, then you can sue your solicitor.
