Thomas v Hugh James Ford Simey Solicitors

Negligence – Duty to take care. In dismissing the claimant's case of negligence against his former solicitors, the Court of Appeal Civil Division held that solicitors acting in a high volume, fixed costs scheme for low value personal injury cases, were not under a duty to advise about heads of claim which the client had said he did not wish to pursue and for which he said that he could not provide supporting evidence.
