Professional Negligence claims in the construction industry

Professionals in the construction industry have a duty of care to their clients due to the agreement to undertake a specialist job that requires expertise in the field. If an architect, surveyor, engineer or builder has been contracted for a job and you feel they have been in breach of duty, or damages or a loss has occurred as a result of the work, you may be entitled to make a Professional Negligence claim.

What is construction negligence?

Construction negligence refers to a situation where those responsible for a construction project fail to meet their duty of care for the project. This can happen in numerous ways, such as poor installation or careless planning or the contractor or developer not being properly licensed to perform the project.

Negligence is defined as a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. The behaviour usually consists of actions, but can also consist of omissions when there is some duty to act.
