Letter of Claim For Negligence

Letter Of Claim For Negligence Claims


Precedent letter of claim and guidance notes. Suitable for claims in negligence.

This is a letter of claim suitable for disputes based on negligence. Most small claims involve contract disputes but sometimes there will be no contract to rely upon. For example, if a neighbour reverses his car into your garden wall, there is no contract but likely a negligence claim.

Sometimes there is both a contract and negligence claim. For example, an accountant which fails to file a client's accounts on time due to its own fault, will likely be negligent and in breach of contract.

This letter sets out the basic content to include and for you to address. We also provide guidance notes to help you finalise the letter.
