Making a Claim for Negligence
Negligence is a gross blunder that can even claim the lives of people in certain instances. Negligence done by certain professionals is unpardonable and needs to be penalized. Professionals have a moral obligation to protect the interests of their clients. They are legally bound with their commitments to their clients. Any breech in their commitments because of negligence in their duty towards the protection of their client's interests, comes under the cover of 'legal negligence cases'.
Professional negligence can be committed by doctors, solicitors, barristers, accountants, surveyors and evaluators and architects. Any negligence caused by professionals of the above mentioned categories can result in huge financial losses. The victim also undergoes mental, psychological and physical trauma because of professional negligence. People who have become victims of any kind of professional negligence can consult negligence claim solicitors.
Legal negligence will not only defeat a person by losing a case it will also demoralize him or her to a great extent. People who have been cheated by a solicitor will obviously lose their trust in the legal system.
So, such people need convincing counseling by their negligence solicitors in order to restore their faith in the legal system of the country. They should maintain a 'no win no pay' philosophy with their clients as they might have already been financially burdened by a previous solicitor who might have breached their faith. There are certain rules that a person should know about before approaching a negligence solicitor. They are:
1) The victim should realize that he or she has been cheated or victimized by a professional before 6 months of the actual victimization. Else he or she stands a very feeble chance of winning a negligence claim.
2) Since it is a case of 'once bitten twice shy', the person files a negligence claim should clearly understand the legal expenses that he needs to bear due to this negligence claim arbitration.
3) The money that a person wins will not cover the legal expenses incurred due to failing a negligence claim.
4) All solicitors in the UK have a professional insurance that will definitely cover a claim of 1 million pounds or more so they can definitely pay the claim money with the aid of their insurance Company.
Property evaluators, who estimate the worth of a property while buying a house so that the buyer can get a mortgage loan, might also mislead their clients. This can be a great negligence that might become very dear to a client. If a person feels that his property or an asset has been devalued, he can sue the evaluator or the surveyor. In such cases negligence solicitors will be useful to claim proper compensation.
Medical negligence is a big deal as careless handling of already ailing people can cause irreversible damage to the physical health of a person. Certain cases of medical negligence might even cause fatalities. But, proving a medical negligence can be a tricky case. A medical negligence can cause immense financial loss. Claiming for medical negligence is a must as people also go through immeasurable trauma, pain and suffering because of this kind of negligence.
Doctors and dentists of all specialties in the Country have to be insured legally against claims. NHS doctors and even private practitioners can be sued for medical negligence. The medical insurance-claims law stipulates that a person can claim for insurance within three years of the 'date of knowledge'. This term is an estimate of the average time required for a normal individual to recognize that a discrepancy has occurred in the treatment procedure. The claimer should also be able to pin point the negligence to a particular doctor.
