Negligence

Professional Negligence Solicitors in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire

You may find yourself in the position where a professional has breached a duty of care causing you loss.  At Sills & Betteridge we can advise you on the possibility of making a claim against the professional for damages to compensate you for that loss. Usually, professionals will be insured and we will initially explore the possibility of reaching a settlement.

Whether you are a business or a private individual, such claims can be expensive and stressful. We can advise you on the costs implications and likelihood of success in any proposed or actual litigation.  Our lawyers deal with such disputes in an understanding, professional way, with a view to resolving the issues as quickly as possible.

Our lawyers can explore with you the possibility of alternative dispute resolution such as formal mediation instead of court proceedings, discussing the likely cost of the different options available stage by stage. Should legal proceedings become necessary, we have experienced advocates who can represent you in court and good relationships with excellent specialist barristers where appropriate.

Client Feedback

  • Chloe, we just want to take this opportunity to thank you. There are not enough words to describe just how amazingly you have handled this whole process for us. We can’t thank you enough for supporting us through what has been a challenging few months!!

    Mr and Mrs Richardson
  • I asked Sharon to look into carrying out some debt collection and from the very first communication, Sharon took away all the stress and hassle which this situation can bring. Sharon kept me fully informed with what was going on and carried out the work in a professional yet personable manner. It was great when Sharon told me all the debt had been collected with late payment interest added and for me, it was a stress and hassle free experience and I would highly recommend Sharon’s services.

  • I wanted to say a huge thanks to Wendy for the help and assistance she and her colleagues have given me over the past few years, on a personal and professional level.
    Wendy is at the top of her game and has a wealth of experience which can only be gained through proven work experience. The legal advice you get is second to none.
    I have used Wendy’s services for the buy out of my previous business partner, a commercial bad debt and the conveyancing of a property sale and purchase. Throughout all of my dealings with Wendy, she has been professional and treated my cases with the upmost priority and has always had my best interests at heart.
    Thanks again Wendy for all of your help and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
