‘Professional advice that won’t let you down’
What is professional negligence?
When you employ a professional to provide professional services and they fail to do so or fail to do so to the standards expected of them and that causes a loss to be suffered by you. It is a complex area and the definitions can be wide and cover many different professional disciplines, but the important thing to remember is that if you believe that you have received negligent professional services for example, advice from an Accountant or plans from an Architect and this has caused you to suffer a loss, you may have a compensation claim.
Do I have a claim for professional negligence?
To advise whether you have a claim for professional negligence we will consider the particular circumstances of your relationship with the professional, whether the professional has failed to comply with its legal requirements and standards and why and;, the losses that you consider have been caused by that as a result in detail. We will also consider strict time limits that apply to such claims. Normally, such a claim must be brought within 6 years of the breach of contract or the damage is suffered but this can be extended it the breach or loss is not known until later and up to 15 years.
How much compensation can I claim for professional negligence?
When you claim compensation for professional negligence, you are asking to be put back into the position you would have been if it had not occurred. You may be able to clearly calculate the amount that you have lost, but there may be some other areas that could incur loss that have not yet occurred or which require a detailed assessment. A professional negligence lawyer will help you understand what you do and do not have a compensation claim for.
What professions can you claim compensation for professional negligence against?
