Professional Negligence Claims

When we rely on the services of a professional, such as an accountant, financial advisor or architect, we are placing our trust in them to use their qualifications, experience and skills to protect our interests. With that in mind, certain standards are expected of professionals when they provide you with a service. If they fall below those standards and you suffer a loss as a result, you may be entitled to compensation or damages.

Not every mistake will entitle you to compensation and it is necessary to ensure that all of the elements of a negligence claim can be found. You will therefore need to consult a legal expert with specialist experience in dealing with professional negligence claims to make sure you have grounds for a claim and that it is pursued effectively.

We can offer you a dedicated and experienced lawyer who will handle your case from start to finish. They will be your point of contact whenever you have a question or want an update and we will always do our best to be available to you whenever you need us.

How we can help you with professional negligence claims

Our Civil Litigation team will examine the scope of the work that you asked the professional to carry out and what their duties to you were.  We will then carefully consider whether they have fallen below the standards expected of a competent professional in that area.

Once that has been established, we will help you assess and calculate the losses you have suffered and ensure that those losses can be directly attributed to the negligent act or mistake.

We often engage in mediation and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to achieve this and find this a very effective method, particularly when insurance companies are involved. Using ADR to solve your claim can typically allow you to get compensation faster, with lower legal costs and much less stress.

When mediation or ADR are not successful, then we can assist you with taking your case to Court and will talk you through each step of the process.
