Professional Negligence

Professional Negligence Lawyers in St Helens

What is Professional Negligence?

Professional negligence is where a professional (such as a solicitor, a surveyor, an accountant etc) is negligent, falling below the standard and quality of work expected from a reasonable professional in the same circumstances, which causes loss to their client.

Negligence occurs if the professional has not provided a reasonable level of skill and care and the level of service or standard of work that you could reasonably expect from a professional working in those circumstances, having regard to the standards usually expected within that profession. It could include, for example – a solicitor missing an important deadline in your case; an accountant failing to detect a fraud; or a surveyor failing to spot a defect.

If you have received professional services which were below standard and you have suffered loss or damage as a result, we can help you to bring a claim for professional negligence. These types of claims can be complex, but we will make sure that we obtain a full understanding of the circumstances and work towards securing the outcome that is best for you.

You hired a financial advisor because you may not have the complete knowledge required for making business or personal transactions when it comes to investing. Don’t let them throw your money away or get caught up in a fraudulent scheme. Speak with us today if you believe your financial advisor is conducting illegal or shady business with your money.

Insurance Broker Negligence

Insurance brokers are not only responsible for putting together your program, but helping you file claims and giving you the proper advice about what your policy covers. Insurance broker negligence isn’t always them selling you faulty insurance. Brokers can also fail to act with reasonable speed, misrepresent you in a claim, disclose a conflict of interest, or they can completely ignore your requirements.
