Professional Negligence Claims for Individuals

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.

Types of professional negligence claims

Professional negligence is a complex area of the law, so it is vital to consult a solicitor with experienced in this area to ensure that you have the best chances of resolving your dispute.

Here at Farleys, we have extensive experience in pursuing professional negligence claims for individuals, covering a wide range of cases, for example;

  • Poor legal advice from a solicitor, or solicitors who have settled a personal injury claim for too little money
  • Incorrectly drafted wills, or trusts that have been mismanaged
  • Problems with buying or selling property, with estate agents, surveyors or architects
  • Missed deadlines from professionals.

For free initial advice about pursuing a claim for professional negligence, you can contact us on 0333 331 4885 or alternatively, you can email us directly and one of our specialist lawyers will respond to your enquiry.

How Will My Professional Negligence Claim Be Resolved?

Prior to proceedings being issued, there are a number of steps to be carried out in a professional negligence claim, including an investigation into the evidence, often involving industry experts.

Litigation is not always required, as a large number of cases are settled without the need to commence a claim. This is an efficient and cost-effective way of resolving your dispute.

Our professional negligence solicitors have considerable experience in negotiation and mediation as well as other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Resolving disputes out of Court is often the most appropriate course of action, due to the financial implications of Court proceedings. However, should a settlement fail to be reached within a reasonable timeframe, our solicitors can advise you on the best course of action to ensure the right result for you.
