Professional Negligence Claims in Devon and Somerset
The recent growth of claims management companies operated by unqualified or untrained staff has added to an increasing number of complaints that are being made about the way personal injury and accident claims are handled.
Our specialist professional negligence lawyers are often called upon to deal with the consequences of this poor service. We cover a broad range of professional negligence cases arising from badly handled injury claims. These include cases where the accident claim has been under-settled in terms of the level of compensation awarded and injury claims that have become statute barred or struck out due to delay.
If negligence can be established then all financial losses directly arising from that negligence can be claimed. In a negligent personal injury action this is likely to include compensation for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and/or pension, the cost of medical treatment, travelling expenses, care and any other out of pocket expenses.
We cover the whole of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and beyond and offer a FREE professional negligence case assessment service.
Our expertise in this specialist areas has been recognised by the highly influential legal guide, The Legal 500. We are also proud to have been awarded Lexcel, the Law Society's quality mark for excellence in client care.
So, if you have previously made a personal injury claim but feel you have been badly let down by your lawyer then speak to one of our specialist team of professional negligence solicitors who will be pleased to offer you guidance. We will assess your professional negligence claim free of charge. If the prospects are good and the value of the claim exceeds the small claims limit (which in 2016 was £10,000) then we are likely to be able to pursue the professional negligence claim on a No Win - No Fee basis. This means that if you don't win your claim you will not have to pay us for the time we spend dealing with your case.
We have solicitors who specialise in professional negligence law based at both our Barnstaple (Devon) and Taunton (Somerset) offices.
