What is Professional Negligence?

A professional negligence claim arises from a breach of the duty of care between a professional and their client. The duty of care is the duty owed by all professionals to act with reasonable care and skill when carrying out their work for the client. At Specters, we have a wealth of experience dealing with negligence claims in the following areas:

Can I make a claim?

When you deal with a professional, you are entitled to expect a reasonable standard of work quality. Mistakes can and do happen, and not all mistakes are negligent. However, if you feel that you have received particularly bad advice or service, leading to a financial loss, you may be able to make a professional negligence claim.

There are three key questions that can help you identify whether you have grounds to claim.

  1. Can you prove that the advice or service you received was a breach of the professional's duty of care?
  2. Can you prove that if you had received proper advice or service, there would have been a different outcome?
  3. Have you sustained a financial loss?
