Professional Negligence


Negligence is the legal term for conduct which falls below the standard expected of a reasonably prudent person in similar circumstances. It is established under the law of TORT and requires a duty of care owed to the potential claimant, a breach of that duty of care, causation and damage.

There are many areas of daily life where such duties exist, from solicitor and their clients, to doctors and their patients. Duties of trust often exist where you place trust in the hands of professionals, who then fail to meet the standards of skill and care in the performance of the required service.

Our litigation team with 60 years of experience can assist with all aspects of negligence claims from establishing a claim and causation, to issuing Court Proceedings and obtaining the appropriate resolution.

Professional negligence litigation raises sensitive issues for all parties involved and there is usually a great deal at stake for professionals who are subject to such a claim. Such proceedings can have wide reaching implications and are sometimes defended because of that fact. It should be born in mind that most professional claims involve professional insurance protection where you can get your financial redress in monetary terms from that policy.

On the other hand, you may find yourself having suffered damages due to negligent conduct and inaction of a professional individual or organisation. The professionals in question may be solicitors, barristers, architects, surveyors, brokers or bankers, all of whom owe a duty of care to their clients and customers in a professional capacity. If the professional has breached the duty of care to you and caused you loss, you can bring a claim for professional negligence against them.
