Professional Negligence

Has a professional failed in their duty care to you?

When a professional provides you with legal, financial or technical advice, you rely on that advice being correct and accurate.  Professionals owe a duty of care to you to perform their job to a reasonable standard and with reasonable care.

Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Where a professional fails to perform their duties to the reasonable standard expected of them and causes you to suffer loss and/or damage, you are entitled to claim compensation from them for the losses or damage you suffer.

Here are just some of the problems that our clients face when professionals fail in their duty:

Solicitors/Legal Advisors

  • Drafting documents incorrectly
  • Missing vital deadlines
  • Misadvising their clients particularly in areas beyond their expertise
  • Providing poor or incorrect legal advice
  • Failing to advise on settlement terms

Accountants

  • Failure to detect fraud
  • Failure to file tax returns on time
  • Providing poor or incorrect tax advice

Financial advisors

  • Mis-selling a financial product
  • Failing to recommend the correct financial/investment product

Engineers / Architects

  • Providing flawed designs or failing to spot a design flaw

Surveyors

  • Failing to notice a defect in a property

We understand that making a claim against a professional can be daunting, but our expert team is here to guide you carefully through the process. We have an excellent reputation in this area and undertake a wide range of professional negligence cases, with a wide wealth of knowledge and experience to draw on.

Wherever possible we attempt to resolve the claim out of court. However, where matters do escalate, we are able to deliver focused support and practical guidance to achieve the best results for you.

On review of your case, we can agree on various funding arrangements including:

  • Conditional Fee Arrangements, which include “no win, no fee”, or “no win, less fee” agreements
  • Damages Based Agreements, where our fees are capped to a percentage of the damages recovered
  • Fixed hourly rates

If you believe a professional has given you negligent advice and caused you loss and/or damage, get in touch with our expert team today – all discussions are strictly no obligation, no strings attached.
