Professional Negligence

Professionals are legally bound to exercise "reasonable skill and care" when dealing with clients. If you have received inappropriate or inefficient advice from a qualified professional person and have lost out financially as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim for professional negligence.

Professionals that are involved in disputes concerning claims for negligence range from accountants and solicitors to barristers, financial advisers to surveyors. For your professional negligence claim to be successful, you need to establish the existence of a duty of care on the part of the professional, that this duty has been breached and that you have suffered loss and damage as a result of this breach.

Glanvilles solicitors are fully conversant and experienced in all aspects of professional negligence. If you feel a professional has not used reasonable skill and care in looking after your interests, than we will do our utmost to ensure you receive suitable and substantial damages.

However, it is important to remember when dealing with professionals that you should:

  • Be clear about what you want and what you expect to be delivered
  • Always make sure you know how much you're paying and what you're getting for your money
  • Find out how long the work will take
  • Determine when the advice will be given
  • Never be pressured to accept the professional's advice. If in doubt, always seek a second opinion.

When you make a professional negligence claim with Glanvilles, we will provide you with essential advice on:

  • Existence of a duty of care
  • Scope of that duty
  • Quality of the advice that is given by the professional
  • Issue of causation
  • Duty to mitigate
  • The measure of loss and damage
