Professional Negligence

Everyone makes mistakes, but if a professional such as an Accountant, Solicitor, Surveyor or Valuer makes an error which causes you a loss then you may be able to take action.

Our Dispute Resolution Team in Stafford, Newcastle-under-Lyme & Alsager can give you help and advice as soon as difficulties arise.  Often this early intervention can help to resolve the dispute quickly and in the most cost-effective way.

What do I need to prove?

To succeed in a professional negligence claim you need to prove that the professional service you received fell below a reasonable standard expected of that professional. 

You will also need to prove that you have suffered a loss as a direct result of that failure. The level of losses you can claim will vary depending on the particular issues in your case. 

When should I get advice?

Our Solicitors are specialists in assessing your issues at an early stage to establish whether you have a viable claim.  Getting early advice is important as this can help to resolve issues quickly and limit your losses.

It is important to be aware that there are strict time limits to bring a claim for professional negligence, which makes it even more important to get advice as soon as you are aware of a problem.  This early action can also help to preserve evidence which may be useful to support a claim.
