Making a professional negligence claim
We are ‘No Win-No Fee’ solicitors – you only pay us if we win your claim.
Both businesses and individuals turn to professionals such as accountants, solicitors, financial advisers and surveyors for help and expert advice. Occasionally there are losses and negative consequences that occur because of the advice that is given.
For example, if following financial advice you suffered a loss on your investments, you may be able to make a claim if it can be shown that your adviser acted negligently and your loss was a direct result of this negligence.
Are you entitled to make a claim?
To be able to make a claim it will be necessary to show that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the professional you engaged to advise you and act on your behalf.
- The standard of care you received fell below that of other reasonably competent professionals in the same area of expertise.
- Your loss was directly caused by the breach of duty of care and not by other factors such as adverse market conditions.
How long do I have to make a claim?
For no-obligation legal advice call us free on 0800 633 5730.
Time is an important factor when make a claim as there is a limit to how long you have.
Your claim must be brought within 6 years from the date the negligence occurred.
However if professional negligence was not evident at this time and only came to light at a later date the time limit may be extended.
