The results of experiencing negligence when you’ve paid someone for their professional services can be distressing, sometimes costly and occasionally a dangerous threat to your health.
In most cases, you need to bring a court case within six years of the date of the negligence. You may still be able to bring a claim after that period if the negligence only comes to light at a later date.
If you want your complaint to be dealt with by an ombudsman, other time limits also apply. Typically you have six months in which to contact the ombudsman after receiving a final response from the adviser you are claiming against.
If in any doubt, it’s probably best to register your issue with a lawyer, who can then advise.
