When going to a qualified professional for help, the last thing to you expect is negligence. We all require advice and help from professionals as part of everyday life, whether it be from a solicitor, an accountant, architect or surveyor – so when they fail to exercise the ‘reasonable skill and care’ that they are legally bound to do, then they are liable for damages.
Professionals often have indemnity insurance to cover themselves in the event that a negligence claim is made against them. If a mistake by a professional is something that someone else in the same profession would not have made, and you have lost money and trust as a result of the mistake, then you may be entitled to make a claim for professional negligence.
