Our professional negligence lawyers can help you claim compensation in a range of professional negligence cases, both small and large. This has included everyone from tradespeople, to accountants, IFAs, lawyers, insurance brokers and many more.

There are strict procedural requirements to which you need to adhere to successfully pursue a professional negligence claim. The professional in question must have owed you a duty of care and that duty was breached, which lead to you incurring a loss.
