Professional negligence is where someone who has been trained in a professional to offer help
and advice gives the wrong advice. If the advice you were given results in a loss or injury, then
you may have a claim for professional negligence.
There are many different professions that you may come across that could be negligent in their
approach to your situation. This can include:
Professional negligence involving doctors is more commonly known as medical negligence, but it
amounts to the same thing.
The losses or injuries involved with professional negligence can be life changing, and it is
important to remember that it is a requirement of many professional bodies that their members
have insurance in place to cover them in the event of professional negligence claims.
What should you do if you think you have been given the wrong advice from a professional? Your
starting place should be to talk to a solicitor about the circumstances of your situation. A solicitor
who specialises in professional negligence can quickly tell you if you have a claim.
Whilst you may not feel much like trusting another professional for advice, especially if you were
given negligent advice from a solicitor but you should understand that most professionals are
conscientious and will act in your best interests.
If a solicitor identifies that you have a professional negligence claim they will discuss you the
available options to fund your claim and once you are successful in making the professional
negligence claim, you will get your legal costs back.
In addition, you will receive compensation that should put you back in the situation you were in
before the negligent advice and also compensation to alleviate the issues the advice has caused
