Whether it is buying a property, setting up or running a business, financial planning, or any number of other situations, at some point in life, almost everyone will need to rely the services of a professional, either for advice, or to complete a specific project.

Very occasionally, something goes wrong, and the services provided by the professional falls short of the standards required of their profession.

Where that happens, and where a failure in those standards causes you to suffer substantial financial loss, you may have a claim in negligence against the professional concerned.

To succeed in a professional negligence claim, the person claiming a loss must prove:

  • A duty of care owed by the professional to the person claiming loss
  • A breach of that duty
  • A ‘loss’ suffered by the innocent party (in professional negligence that does not involve a personal injury this means financial loss)
  • A clear link between the breach of duty and the loss.

Professional negligence claims are complicated, and may well form part of a wider claim including breach of contract and/or (for some professions), breach of a specific duty of trust. 

Having felt let down by a professional, you will want to be sure that you can rely on your legal team to give you high standards of service, both in the advice they provide to you, and in their efforts to secure compensation for your financial loss.

  • Lawyers (solicitors, barristers and legal executives)
