Professional Negligence Claims

Making a  Professional Negligence Claim is a specialist area of law – if you are thinking of suing a professional, you need experienced solicitors on your side.

Our solicitors are experienced in running any  Professional Negligence Claim in Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and England and Wales [on behalf of both private individuals and businesses] against a wide range of professionals including:

  • Negligent solicitors and barristers in claims such as failed litigation or wrongly drafted wills
  • Accountants and tax consultants for negligent tax advice
  • Surveyors and architects on issues such as negligent property valuations and failure to spot property defects
  • Negligent doctors and other medical negligence claims
  • Dental negligence claims

However, poor service from solicitors or other professionals does not necessarily mean that they have been negligent. Broadly speaking, if a trusted professional makes a mistake resulting in a financial loss, you may have a Professional Negligence Claim for financial compensation.

Professional Negligence Claims – the Need for a Specialist Solicitor

It’s so important that you instruct a specialist professional negligence solicitor to make your claim for compensation. Why?

  • Firstly negligence claims against professionals involve a complex area of law and procedure.
  • Secondly when suing a professional you will almost certainly find that they have a specialist solicitor on their side –– perhaps appointed by their insurers. You’ll certainly find that in the case of suing solicitors, doctors or dentists for example. You need to make sure that the solicitor you choose has the practical experience and knowledge to fight your corner – because when it comes to suing professionals, they are often particularly reluctant to admit any sign of liability and you will probably find your solicitor needs to push hard to win your case.

How to pick the right solicitor? Begin your search by looking for solicitors who specialise in professional negligence and check whether they are members of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association (PNLA) – the only organisation for Professional Negligence Lawyers in England and Wales.
