When disputes begin to get out of hand, clients often come to us for legal advice. However, in order to ensure you act in your own best interests, it is always important to seek legal advice as soon as a disagreement turns into a larger dispute.
What constitutes a dispute that requires legal advice?
At Craybeck Law, we are able to advise you on disputes such as problems with local authorities, receiving the right type of care for elderly relatives or young adults with special needs, family disputes regarding looking after relatives, professional negligence or breach of contract.
When is the right time to seek legal advice about a dispute?
If you intend to instigate a dispute we would advise you to contact us as soon as possible - before you begin any correspondence with the other party. Similarly, if you find yourself on the receiving end of being served legal papers, please reach out for advice before you proceed to respond in any way. In short, we would advise anyone involved in a dispute to contact Craybeck Law as soon as you begin to realise a dispute is underway.
Often, we find that clients approach us mid-way through a dispute, after something has occurred that they no longer know how to respond to. For example, after they have already replied to the first piece of communication. If possible, it is always better to seek help before you become embroiled in a dispute of any kind, as anything you do could be used as evidence at a later date. By seeking legal advice early, we can ensure you are in the best position to move forward.
What if I am not sure if the event I am involved in constitutes a dispute?
We can provide you with confidential advice at any stage. If you are in an unusual situation involving a second party and you are not sure how to react or respond, get in touch with us. We will find out more about your specific situation and we can advise you on the best course of action.
Finding yourself in a dispute situation can be stressful, confusing, and often difficult if you have never been in a similar situation in the past. On these occasions, we can guide you through your options, and ensure you are fully prepared for every eventuality.
Sometimes, disputes against health boards or professional organisations can arise out of nowhere, and in these situations, they can be even more difficult to navigate. Rather than struggle alone, please reach out to us for advice and guidance.
At Craybeck Law, our friendly team are approachable and committed to give you the advice and support that you need. Whether you are involved in a dispute regarding care for a loved one, or you are concerned about an ongoing issue and you are not sure how to proceed, let us help.
