As a business or individual seeking professional advice, often at great cost, you rightly expect this advice to be reliable and accurate.

At Specters we have over 25 years’ experience dealing with Professional Negligence Claims. We have a specialist team of qualified professional negligence solicitors and legal experts who are ready to work on your behalf to remedy the wrong that you have suffered.

What is Professional Negligence?

A professional is a person who represents themselves as having sufficient skill and knowledge in a particular area to act for a client. Professional negligence occurs when a professional person performs below a reasonable standard, resulting in damage or loss to their client.

Examples of professional negligence include:

  • Incorrect advice before a property purchase
  • Undervalued assets
  • Under-settlement of a claim
  • Missed limitation dates or court deadline for a claim
  • Failure to comply with a court order
  • Unsuitable investment advice
  • Missed court deadline
  • Missed defects in a pre-purchase survey

The impact of a solicitor’s negligence on a client can be particularly damaging. Solicitors are often involved in high value transactions such as residential conveyancing, or high stakes litigation in personal injury or commercial litigation. Mistakes such as not reading the contract properly, or missing a court deadline, could cost a client hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Suing a solicitor or any other professional for negligence is a complex process. At Specters, we can help you in all of these scenarios and many more.
