What is professional negligence?

Professional negligence is the term given to a breach of duty between a professional and a client. Professional negligence claims are brought against a wide range of professionals, such as solicitors, accountants, financial advisers, surveyors, and barristers.

Professionals such as those outlined above have a duty of care when advising their clients, particularly in cases where they are dealing with property purchases and sales, and in legal cases such as medical negligence or personal injury claims.

If you have suffered due to professional negligence, our solicitors are here to help you.

What are the different types of professional negligence?

The most common types of professional negligence are:

  • Missed time limits: This can involve missing a court deadline, or the limitation date for beginning a legal claim.
  • Undetected injuries: Some types of personal injury can be missed when cases are settled, for example subtle head and brain injuries.
  • Ending a case too soon: Some cases are settled before an injury has healed or without medical evidence on the timeframe of recovery. A professional negligence claim can arise if there was inadequate advice at the time of settlement.
  • Delay: If a case is delayed due to a slow-moving legal adviser, the settlement may not include the full interest claim, and you could therefore lose out on compensation you deserve.
  • Missed types of loss: Injury claims can include compensation for care and support from family members, as well as lost earnings caused by time needed off work. If your solicitor misses this, you may have missed out on compensation.

If you have suffered due to any of the above, we can help you to make a professional negligence claim.
