Professional negligence claims

Professional negligence claims

Individuals and businesses often require professional support when it comes to legal, technical or financial matters. Most people rely on the advice of professional such as accountants, solicitors, architects, and surveyors, when making many of the biggest decisions we take in life. Professional negligence claims occur when the legal obligation to provide professional services with reasonable standards of care and attention to detail, known as a ‘duty of care’, is not met.
