Advice on professional negligence

You may have had occasion to instruct or take advice from any of the following categories of professional:-

  • Accountants
  • Insurance Brokers
  • Financial Advisors
  • Surveyors
  • Solicitors
  • Barristers

If you believe a professional has failed to carry out, to the expected standards, the duties and responsibilities owed to you and that as a result you have suffered a loss a claim for professional negligence can be brought.

Damages are awarded by putting you, so far as money can, back into the position you would have been had the professional discharged their duty correctly. Many professionals are required to hold insurance for potential claims against them which means claimants have peace of mind that a successful claim will be paid out.

It is important to seek advice on your negligence claim as soon as possible. Whilst the strict limitation period is generally 6 years the sooner a claim is brought the easier it will be to evidence the elements required for a successful claim. Contact our professional negligence team to find out how we can help to resolve your claim.

Our solicitors have considerable experience in bringing successful claims against other professionals up to trial. We are able to provide a quick assessment of the merits of the case which is often the first question we are asked.

When assessing your case we will consider your funding requirements. It is always advisable to check your existing insurance policies in the first instance to see whether you have legal expense cover. If you do not have insurance cover then we will work with you to ensure that our costs are proportionate to the sums in issue in your claim.
