A Professional negligence claim is where a professional (such as a financial adviser, accountant, solicitor, architect, estate agent or a surveyor) fails to perform to their defined duties and this results in their client incurring a financial loss.
Every professional has a duty of care to a client, which commands them to perform their job to an appropriate standard, with reasonable care.
Negligence happens if a professional has not met this commitment when representing or working with their client.
Professional negligence claims are not uncommon and in recent years have increased for a number of reasons. One contributing factor to this, is that we are increasingly more aware of our legal rights and how to exercise them.
