Professional Negligence Claims

Our Personal Disputes team advises clients on professional negligence claims against a wide range of professionals, including:

  • Accountants
  • Architects and engineers
  • Financial advisors
  • Insurance brokers
  • Solicitors and barristers
  • Surveyors, valuers and land agents
  • Medical professionals and veterinary surgeons

We recognise that when you engage a professional, you may be basing important decisions on their advice and/or actions. Discovering that their advice or performance has been below the standards you expect can be both distressing and costly. We understand that in these circumstances, you may feel a wide range of emotions and be unsure of how to seek redress. Our experienced team can advise on all aspects of a professional negligence claim. We will help you to make sense of the legal jargon and understand your position and options.

Professionals trade on their ability to provide a specialist skill and must practise that skill with reasonable care. Many are members of a regulated body that sets professional and ethical standards. If they fail to match those standards, then there may be a claim.

In most cases the professional duty is only to you, their client, and you can bring an action for professional negligence and breach of contract. However, in a small number of cases, claims may be brought against professionals by third parties.

We regularly act in a wide range of professional negligence cases. If you feel you have been let down by a professional, get in touch-you may have a claim and we can help.
