Having practiced in the area of professional negligence for many years, Hunter Solicitors can help you take action against a professional who has made a mistake and cost you money. With professional indemnity insurance being compulsory for most professionals, there is a very strong chance that money will be there to payout your claim.
Here are a couple of examples of very successful claims we have achieved for our clients against their previous lawyers:
When our client engaged his previous lawyer to prepare a contract for the sale of his residential property, the lawyer failed in include full details of an easement in the contract. As a result, the buyer was able to get out of the contract and receive a full refund of deposit. Legal action taken against the lawyer resulted in the lawyer being responsible for our client's losses, including payment of his legal fees.
Our client's previous lawyer missed a limitation date deadline - meaning the lawyer failed to commence a claim in the Court within the required time limit period - a detrimental mistake which meant our client lost the right to claim for compensation for a serious loss. In this case the lawyer was held personally responsible and a claim was made against the lawyer's professional indemnity insurer, resulting in a very good payout to our client.
