Professional Negligence Claims

If your solicitor or any other professional advising you has let you down and you have suffered a financial loss as a result, then you may be able to make a professional negligence claim to recover your financial losses.

Our solicitors have acted in professional negligence claims against a range of professionals including

  • Solicitors
  • Surveyors
  • Valuers
  • Architects
  • Accountants
  • Banks
  • Insurance brokers
  • Financial advisors

In many cases, professionals will have to carry professional indemnity insurance and will undoubtedly instruct their own experienced lawyers to investigate your claim and to defend it if necessary.  Due to the specialist nature of professional negligence claims, it is crucial that your claim is handled by an experienced lawyer at all stages.

If we are satisfied that your professional negligence claim is likely to succeed, then in most cases we will be prepared to act for you on a no win no fee basis.

To have a claim, your complaint must go beyond complaints about inadequate or  poor service. Whether or not your case will succeed depends upon the existence of a duty of care, the scope of that duty, whether or not that duty has been breached by the professional, how much loss you have suffered and whether that loss was suffered as a result of the professional’s negligence.

In relation to claims against other solicitors, our team has an excellent general understanding of a wide range of legal practice areas. Where more specialist advice is required,  we are of course able to draw upon the advice and expertise of a range of specialist solicitors working at CWJ in the areas of property, employment, family, personal injury, wills and general private client work, commercial work and corporate transactions.
