What to I do if I want to make a complaint?
We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service our cycle accident team have provided to you then you should inform us immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the problem for you. In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the member of team who is working on your case to discuss any concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you feel that you would like to make a formal complaint then you can access our full complaints procedure click here.
If we have been unable to settle your complaint using our internal complaints process, you have the right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman, an independent complaints body established under the Legal Services Act 2007 that deals with legal services complaints for complaints about the service we have provided to you or to our Regulator, the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority (SRA) where you have concerns about our behaviour, for example, if you consider that we have been dishonest, deliberately overcharged you, taken or lost your money or treated you unfairly because of your age, disability or other characteristic.
Complaints about our Service:
The Legal Ombudsman can investigate complaints up to six years from the date of the problem happening or within three years of when you found out about the problem. You have six months from the date of our final letter in which to complain to the Legal Ombudsman.
