professional negligence claims
When you employ a professional such as a solicitor, financial adviser, accountant, surveyor or an architect to undertake work on your behalf, you expect them to perform to the standards expected of them. This, however, is not always the case. Unfortunately, in what is known as professional negligence, professionals can sometimes fail to provide work of a reasonable standard, which can then lead to you suffering damage or loss.
A professional will always have a duty of care to their clients to ensure that they perform their job to a reasonable standard and with reasonable care and consideration. If this has not been the case and you feel that you have been a victim of professional negligence, we are here to assist in gaining the appropriate level of compensation.
If you would like to discuss a professional negligence claim, call us on our freephone number, 0800 195 95 90, to talk to one of our solicitors.
A claim for professional negligence compensation can be made against almost any professional who may have caused you a loss. You could claim if you lose out due to an under valuation made by a surveyor, or if your solicitor fails to meet vital limitation dates and causes you to miss out on a settlement.
