COMPLAINTS HANDLING PROCEDURE

We are committed to providing a high-quality legal service to all our clients. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. This will help us to improve our standards. If at any point you become unhappy with the service we provide to you or you have concerns about your bill, then you should inform us immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the problem for you. We will not charge you for handling your complaint.

 How can I make a complaint?

  • Email: complaints@findmyclaims.com
  • Letter: FindMyClaims.com, Abel Smith House, Gunnels Wood Road, Stevenage, SG1 2ST

We may ask you to complete a complaint form to ensure we have fully understood your concerns. If we have asked you to complete a complaint form we will wait to receive this before taking the below steps.

 What will happen next?

  1. We will respond acknowledging receipt of your complaint within three days of receiving it, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  1. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to our principal solicitor, Asad Rana, who will review your matter file and, if appropriate, speak to the members of staff who acted for you.
  1. Asad Rana may invite you to a meeting to discuss your complaint if he felt that this could help to understand and resolve your concerns. Your may also request a meeting by calling us on 01763281000. If necessary this meeting will take place within 14 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter. Within three days of the meeting, Asad Rana will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions he has agreed with you.
  1. If Asad Rana feels a meeting to discuss your complaint is not necessary, or you do not want a meeting, Asad Rana will send you a detailed written reply to your complaint, including his suggestions for resolving the matter, within 21 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter. If we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why.

What if I am not satisfied with the outcome?

If we are unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks after you have brought it to our attention, then you can have the complaint independently looked at by the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman investigates complaints about poor service from lawyers.

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.  If you wish to refer your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman this must be done within six months of our final response to your complaint. The contact details for the Legal Ombudsman are as follows:

Calls from both mobiles and landlines to 03 numbers cost no more than calls to national geographic numbers (starting 01 or 02). Calls are recorded and may be used for training and monitoring purposes.
