Solicitors Negligence – Limitation Advice
Mrs Houston suffered a serious back injury whilst lifting a patient when she worked as a midwife.
Her union appointed a firm of solicitors to deal with her personal injury claim, but the solicitors didn’t seem to think she had a very good case, so they didn’t do much to pursue the claim.
The solicitors then allowed the three year limitation deadline to go by without issuing any court proceedings and without telling Mrs Houston.
We took on the professional negligence claim against the union solicitors and helped our client recover over £25,000 in compensation.
