Have you made a loss because of someone else’s mistake?

Professional negligence happens when a professional gives an individual or business mis-leading or negligent advice that leads to financial loss, personal hardship, missed opportunities or lost time.

Examples of professional negligence can vary depending on the source, sector and industry, but could include:

Examples:

instances where you’ve been given incorrect financial advice that has led to financial loss

receiving poor or mis-leading advice as a result of a professional’s lack of expertise

suffering either financially, and often emotionally, as a result of a professional’s lack of due diligence or care

    Professional negligence FAQs

    How do you prove professional negligence?

    The foundations of proving professional negligence is three-fold:

    • The professional owed a duty of care
    • They breached that duty of care
    • The breached caused loss to the claimant

    When armed with the information above, our professional negligence solicitors will be able to find a way to win your claim.

    What is professional duty of care?

    Professional duty of care is a legal duty that requires a professional to undertake a level of care, diligence and skill when working with a client.

    For example, if you have approached a financial adviser and they have provided you with mis-leading advice that has cost you money through inadvisable investments, you may be able to claim for professional negligence.

    Can I sue my insurance company for professional negligence?

    If the insurance broker you employed to source an insurance product for you or your business failed to assess the risks you specified, gave mis-leading advice or incorrectly handled claims, you may be able to claim for professional negligence.

    Insurance Brokers are also bound by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), so they must adhere to the rules and regulations governed by the FCA. If they fail to comply with these laws, they may have also breached their duty of care and you could have a claim to make.

    Can I get compensation for professional negligence?

    If your claim and case proves that a professional has breached their duty of care, you could be due compensation. We can help you with your claims process from start to finish – contact us today for more information.
