Suing A Solicitor For Negligence

When a person seeks legal advice from a solicitor it means they need professional legal advice from an expert. Unfortunately, it happens that in some instances the solicitor does not hit the mark and that can cause a whole new set of difficulties and even more financial burdens to sort out the old and new problems. Some people may ask what trouble can there be when one make use of a solicitor. Unfortunately, there are a few common reasons why people are suing a solicitor for negligence.

The most common reasons why people are suing a solicitor for negligence are:

1. Under Settling on Claims

This commonly happens when a solicitor is representing a client during a personal injury claim. It is very important that the solicitor provides the client with the right information regarding how much a claim can be worth. In some instances, the solicitor underestimate or misjudge the true value of the claim and or make a mistake during the negotiations with the other parties involved and or accept an unusually low amount of recompense on behalf of the client. This is really good grounds for suing a solicitor for negligence.

2. Missing The Limitation Date

The majority of areas of law have a limitation date. This is the time span after an event has taken place or a disease has been diagnosed in which legal proceedings must be started.  Some people suffer huge compensation losses apart from the initial financial loss. A dire situation such as an accident or illness has caused the solicitor to miss deadline and as a result the case is rejected by the court.

3. Mistakes in Drafting Contracts or Wills

Inaccuracies or miscalculations during the drafting of contracts or wills can cause major implications. More often than not these faults are never noticed for numerous years but at the time when clients want to call upon a contract or with the death of a person these mistakes or invalid wills can cause great difficulties and make the entire process of dealing with the loss of a loved one even more traumatic. In the event of contracts inappropriately unfittingly contracts can cause equal amounts of trouble for individuals and businesses alike. Many cases where people are suing a solicitor for negligence, involves mistakes in the drafting of wills or contracts.

4. Inadequate Advice on Building Regulations & Planning Permissions

When people decide to purchase a new property, build a new property or renovate an existing building there are numerous laws and regulations that needs to be adhered to. It only makes sense that one will make use of the services of a solicitor.

Coupon queen

I have turned into somewhat of a coupon queen. You have to do what ever it takes to make ends meet when you’re a single Mom on a limited income, you know what I mean. Every Sunday I get the paper for the coupons but I also check online anytime I plan on going shopping either for food or whatever. I love the online coupon sites. You can check each individual store from some sites and you can go to certain stores and they’ll allow you to print out coupons right from their web site. The best sites are the ones that offer discounts to several stores right on their web site.

A little bit of bling never hurt anyone

One of the things I enjoy doing, when I have a few extra minutes, and a few extra dollars, is going shopping for fashion jewelry. To be honest, I don’t have as much jewelry as most of my friends and relatives, because I always make sure that the household needs are taken care of before splurging on something like that, but every now and then I like to treat myself to something nice. I try to buy something that will be timeless, and classic, because I don’t want to spend my money on something that will go out of style in only a few months. I don’t have money to waste on short-term trends, you know what I mean?

Refinancing to Save Money

Buying a house seemed like a daunting task. I worked really hard to find the best rates and looked at a few places to get ideas about what was going on in the market at the time.  I was very pleased with the outcome of my mortgage rates and even happier with the house that I was able to purchase.

I’ve  been working on paying off my mortgage for awhile now and am trying to make sure that I can get some decent refinance rates. I’m hoping to lower my monthly payments so that I can pay for a few other expenses during the month, especially those pertaining to my daughter. Lady Bug has expressed interest in playing some team sports and I know those leagues aren’t free to join.

The FHA refinance rates are a lot better than I had hoped. If I’m approved for the new loan, I think I will save a few thousand dollars and pay off my credit cards. I really hate being in debt. I’m just happy that most of all my debt is because I’m a home owner, and not because I went and had a shopping spree on things like expensive shoes.

Trying to have my creative voice in writing

Guest post written by Tim Hall

I’ve never been great at drawing or painting, but something that my teachers always told me in school was that I was a good writer. Sometimes I wish that I had gone into writing as a profession but that’s much easier said than done. Well, now I’m going to try and pick it up again as a way to have some fun.

I’ve been doing my research to see exactly how I can really get started creative writing in the right way. I have found all kinds of great tips online about how to really get started with creative writing. I mentioned something about it to my kids, so they got me a nice little journal for my birthday. It was so sweet because they had really paid attention to know to get that. I plan to fill up that and many journals.
