Professional Negligence

In today’s world we rely on expert advice on an ever increasing scale. Unfortunately, there may be a time when you find you have been let down by a professional whom you trusted to act with care and skill in performing their duties. When this occurs, it can often cause a substantial financial loss which is not your fault.

We have a specialist professional negligence team able to assist both individuals and businesses of all sizes to help recover loss suffered as a result of failings by a professional.

What a is a professional negligence claim?

All professionals (such as a solicitor, barrister, surveyor, financial adviser, valuer, accountant or an architect) owe a duty of care towards their clients, obliging them to perform their job to a reasonable standard and with reasonable care. 

If a professional makes a mistake, which no reasonable person in their position would have made, then they are likely to be in breach of their duty of care. In this is the case you may be entitled to bring a claim against them for damages for professional negligence.

Most professionals are obliged by their professional trade associations or law to carry professional indemnity insurance cover and as a result, a claim against them is usually substantially paid by their insurer.
