Professional Negligence

If you have been provided with a substandard service by a professional that resulted in you suffering a financial loss, you could be in a position to claim compensation. The expert solicitors at Ramsdens are here to guide you through the legal process, giving you the best possible chance to secure the compensation you are entitled to.


When we work with other professionals, we expect a certain level of service, and if a professional’s conduct has fallen short of this - and you have experienced business losses or something similar as a result - you may be entitled to compensation. If you are an individual and have used the services of a professional, you may also be liable to bring a compensation claim.

A number of industries are regulated, which means organisations working within these sectors have to adhere to strict standards of work and conduct. The finance sector is one example of a sector that is regulated, and some of the most common claims we deal with relate to those made against accountants and financial advisors.

We have particular expertise in cases in the following areas:

  • Negligent Accountants - Accounts provide essential guidance to both individuals and businesses across a wide variety of processes. Therefore, it is vital that this advice should be reliable and accurate.
  • Negligent Surveyors - Surveyors are brought in to oversee an important investment or purchase. They are engaged to demonstrate that the property that you plan to purchase is free from issues and can be priced appropriately. It is essential that such observations are made without error.
  • Trustee and Executor negligence - When a person dies, trust is put in executors and trustees to act in accordance with the deceased’s wishes and to deal with dividing the estate in an honest and open way.
  • Negligent Solicitors - Many individuals and businesses will need to rely on solicitors for legal advice at some point, such as when buying or selling a property. Solicitors have a duty of care to provide their services to a reasonable standard.

We also deal with professional negligence claims against:

  • Estate agents and others in the property sector
  • Management consultants
  • Insurance brokers
  • Engineers
  • Architects
  • Valuers
  • Financial Advisors

We will keep you informed of the progress of your case every step of the way, explaining each aspect in clear, easy-to-understand language. We will also talk you through all of the options for funding your case.
