What is Professional Negligence?
By law any professional delivering a service has a duty to exercise a reasonable degree of skill or care. When a professional fails to do so, resulting in you suffering a loss, then you could be eligible to receive compensation for such loss.
If you’ve put your trust in a professional and they’ve let you down you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
A professional practice, be it a doctor; solicitor; accountant; engineer or otherwise, carries with it a responsibility to deliver a service that is in accordance with accepted professional practice. If that professional breaches their duty of care towards you, then you must prove that you have suffered an identifiable loss. That loss, whether a financial or injury related loss, must be directly related to that professional’s negligence. You also have to prove that you have become worse off as a result of that negligence.
