COVID - 19 Supporting our Clients

Currently the UK is experiencing the worst viral pandemic in over 100 years. Normal life, by necessity has had to be placed on hold whilst, together, we battle this new threat to our prosperity and well being.

However, we at Lawyers4u are aware many of our clients have current ongoing legal proceedings and we wish to reassure and reconfirm our commitment to them.

Where legal proceedings are currently before the Courts we shall ensure that your interests are fully represented and that there will be no detrimental effect to your case because you are unable to attend scheduled hearings.

Further, new clients can continue to request our help in preparing new claims before the Court, be they as Claimant or Defendant.

Our professional legal teams are ready to help and we are in constant communication with the Courts so we are able to immediately advise our clients of any new developments.

At present the Courts are still allowing the filing of cases but, as to be expected, actual hearings are often conducted over the telephone.

However, in Civil Court Practice this is often the norm regardless. Civil Court hearings are primarily decided on the submitted statements of case and we at Lawyers4U pride ourselves on being amongst the forerunners in this drafting field.

So stay safe and be reassured that as an existing client we got you and if you have need of our services as a new client, we got you too.

Summary of Civil Law

Issues such as negligence, slander, libel, nuisance and vicarious liability are regulated under this doctrine.

  • Negligence

    An action for negligence demands two points be established, firstly the claimant must demonstrate the defendant owed him a Duty of Care, secondly the defendant failed in that duty resulting in loss or damage to the claimant.

  • Contributory Negligence

    If it can be shown that the actions of a claimant for damages contributed negligently to his own loss the courts will reduce or dismiss his claim for compensation accordingly.

  • Defamation, Libel and Slander

    Defamation may be defined as the publication of a statement which tends to lower a person in the estimation of his peers. A defamatory statement or representation in permanent form is a libel, but if spoken by words or gestures, a slander.

  • Nuisance

    For the purpose of this section a nuisance may be either private or public. The claimant may bring an action in private nuisance where the defendant unlawfully interferes with his use or enjoyment of his land or some right attached to it. A public nuisance may be defined as an unlawful act or omission which affects the comfort and convenience of those affected by it.
