Making your negligence claim

If you have been given poor advice or someone has not delivered work to the required standard, you may be entitled to make a claim.

You will want a solicitor who can identify if your claim is worth pursuing. We will help you determine what you could achieve from making a formal claim and how the best way to go forward with it will be.

You can claim if someone’s actions have led to serious consequences for your business including:

  • Loss of money
  • Loss of time
  • Loss of opportunity

If you are making a negligence claim you will want to resolve your dispute quickly with minimum disruption to your business. Our team of experts will work closely alongside you to ensure you receive the compensation you are due and limit any further damage to you or your company.

Here are some examples of situations where you would be entitled to make a claim:

  • Your catering company produced food that resulted in harm to consumers
  • Your logistics company delivered your tennis balls a week after the tennis tournament has finished
  • Your financial advisor gave you advice that was incorrect leading to bad investments
  • Your manufacture produced a product that was not made to your specifications leading to a complete remake

Our experienced team will assess the circumstances of your negligence claim, evaluating the consequences that came from any poor or improper advice you received.

Your claim should be:

  • Resolved efficiently
  • Detailed and accurate for improved success
  • Resolved through mediation if appropriate
  • Defended in court if appropriate

We will work closely alongside you each step of the way in order to guide you through the claims process. You will receive regular updates on any progress and provide support and advise you on funding your case.
