What standard should I expect of a professional service?
From accountants to solicitors, insurance brokers, architects, or surveyors; you trust that when you rely on an expert, that they are providing you with a competent service.
Everyone needs to use the services of a professional advisor at some stage, be it to draft a Will, to look for an alternative insurance provider, or to draft plans for a house extension.
When you instruct a professional, you trust that the work they perform is of a high standard and that the advice they give to you is competent. You expect to be able to rely on the advice of the professional you have instructed, and make important decisions based upon this advice.
Accordingly, the impact of receiving negligent advice from a professional advisor can be devastating and sometimes significantly costly.
Professional duty of care
Professional advisers owe a duty of care to their clients to carry out their work with reasonable care and skill. A professional adviser is not expected to be perfect but is expected to act reasonably and in-keeping with that of other members of their profession.
Where a professional has made an error or acted in a way that another reasonable person of that profession would not have, they will likely have acted negligently. This can include advice provided by professionals, in actions they carry out on behalf of a client or in work that they prepare.
What sort of issues can we assist with?
Our litigation team are experienced in bringing claims in professional negligence, and are able to assist in bringing claims against the following professionals (amongst others):
