Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello. I am Ed, a Solicitor qualified in England & Wales with over a decade’s experience in the legal profession advising clients.
I specialise in Commercial Contracts, Business Transactions, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Personal Injury and Road Traffic Law and shall be reviewing your legal problem today.
Regarding the site’s automatic offer of a Premium Service Phone Call, I shall be delighted to talk with you by phone to discuss your issue in greater detail if you accept the offer.
However, if you do not want a phone call, please cancel the offer for a Premium Service Phone Call and you will not be charged extra.
Your trade union advisers may owe you a duty of care in contract and negligence to act in your best interests and provide services to a standard of competence reasonably expected from a professional in their area.
If their actions or inaction have caused you financial loss, you may have a professional negligence claim against them for damages for your losses caused as a result of their conduct, plus interest on damages and legal costs.
I suggest you instruct specialist Professional Negligence Solicitors. They will take your instructions and provide you with a draft Form of Authority to sign that will be addressed to your former union requiring them to provide your solicitors with a copy of their file of papers.
From there, your Professional Negligence Solicitors will advise you on the merits of your claim and whether you have above 50% prospects of success.
If you have a Home and Contents Insurance Policy with Legal Expenses Cover, it may be worth notifying your insurers and requesting that your legal fees in this claim be paid and/or that they appoint a law firm on their panel of insurers to conduct your claim.
I hope this resolves your enquiry. Please revert to me if you require any clarification of my answer to your question and I shall be delighted to assist.
Otherwise, I shall be grateful if you will please mark your enquiry as “Closed” and give me a “Positive” rating to conclude this matter.
