Professional Negligence

Professionals are expected to practice their specialism with reasonable skill and care. Sometimes the work carried out by a professional falls below the standard that is reasonably expected. If you suffer financial loss as a result you may be eligible to claim. You can make a claim against many types of professional including accountants, solicitors, barristers, surveyors, financial advisors, architects and engineers.
