Professional negligence

If you feel that you have received sub-standard professional advice or service levels which fall short of best practice standards then you could be in a position to claim for compensation.

  • Overview
  • Next Steps

Throughout our lives we will often ask for advice from a professional such as a financial advisor, surveyor or even a solicitor.

It is the reassurance and expert guidance with our best interests at heart that we look for. But what if the advice you received from a professional was poor or misleading?

If you feel that you have received sub-standard professional advice or service levels which fall short of best practice standards then you could be in a position to claim for compensation.

Common examples of professional negligence include:

  • Negligent advice and/or the mis-selling of a product by a financial advisor
  • Incorrect property valuations from a surveyor or a failure to spot defects
  • Missing of certain time limits by a solicitor, which leaves a client liable for fees
  • Failure to perform property searches by a conveyancer, which leads to a client overpaying, or purchasing a property without the facts they would reasonably expect which has liabilities the purchaser was unaware of.
  • Failure to draft documents correctly by a solicitor in business transactions. 

Professional negligence cases can be complex and it may not be immediately clear to you whether you can claim. We offer a free, no obligation initial assessment of your case, so there’s no risk in speaking to us.

We can offer various options for funding your case. In many cases we will work under a “No Win No Fee” agreement, which means there will be no cost to you if your claim is unsuccessful.*
