What is Professional Negligence?
The law of negligence covers a huge number of situations in which liability may arise. Where there is a legal duty of care towards you and an individual or organisation has breached that duty of care, they may be held responsible for any injury or loss you sustained and have to pay damages as compensation.
If you instrust us on your negligence claim, then we will ensure active case management of your matter and pursue your claim as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.
All professional advisers have a duty of care to provide a certain standard of service to their clients. If your professional adviser falls below the minimum standard and you suffer financial loss, you may have a claim.
Professional advisers who owe their clients a duty of care include solicitors, barristers, accountants, surveyors, architects, estate agents and financial advisers.
How much will it cost for me to make a claim?
We offer a range of funding options to help you pay for the cost of your claim, including ‘No Win – No Fee’ arrangements.
