If you have experienced inadequate advice or improper conduct by a qualified professional person and as a result you have incurred financial loss, you may be entitled to make a claim against the professional person for professional negligence.
Professional negligence is when a professional person or entity fails to perform their responsibilities to the required standard or breaches its duty of care owed to you. This inadequate and poor conduct can result in financial losses, physical damage or injury.
Disputes arising in relation to professional negligence may concern a wide range of professionals, including:
- Financial Advisors
- Insurance Brokers
A claim for negligence can be brought against anyone considered to have expertise in the services they provide. If the service you have received does not meet the level of advice you expect, you should consider whether there is any negligence.
Why choose Edwards Duthie Shamash?
Edwards Duthie Shamash Solicitors will be able to advise you on whether there is a duty of care owed by the professional to you, and whether that duty has been breached. The professional is legally required to exercise a degree of skill and care in the performance of its duties, and that standard of skill and care must be the same as a reasonable professional working in the same field. If the professional fails to perform to this standard, and as a result you have lost money due to their mistake or breach of duty, then that person may be liable to you for damages as compensation.
