Professional Negligence Claims



Professionals such as Solicitors, Accountants, Financial Planners, Engineers and Valuers owe their clients a legal duty of care.

Where a professional advisor fails to exercise reasonable care and skill when providing you with advice or managing your affairs you may have a right to compensation if that failure caused you to suffer a foreseeable financial loss.

If your professional advisor has breached their duty of care you are entitled to recover compensation in the amount that will put you back in your original financial position.
