If a professional has acted negligently and their advice and performance were below what was expected, causing you or your business a financial loss – you may be able to claim compensation.
Professionals who act on your behalf, such as solicitors, surveyors, accountants and estate agents, have a duty of care towards you as their client, to act in your best interests. Professional negligence occurs where that duty of care has been breached.
If there has been a financial loss as a result of this breach, there may be a legitimate claim for compensation. Our experienced professional negligence lawyers will investigate your case and give you a realistic idea of the strength of your claim and the losses that might arise and be recoverable as a result of the professional’s negligence.
We can help if you have received poor quality advice from:
- Estate agents
- Financial advisors
- Insurance brokers
