Solicitors Negligence

A Kirkby woman  won ₤8,000 after she succeeded in her professional negligence claim after  suing an advice centre who bungled her claim for unfair dismissal by pursuing the wrong company.

The client brought the action against Merseyside Employment Law after discovering her award for unfair dismissal against a previous employer was unenforceable because of their glaring mistake.

The mix-up was only detected after the client sought help from solicitors following several failed attempts to get the money she won at an earlier industrial tribunal.

The client was horrified to discover Merseyside Employment Law had brought the action against the wrong company with a similar sounding name to the one she used to work for.
