Professional Negligence Claims

Professional advisors owe you a ‘duty of care’ when providing you with a service, this means that they have an obligation to protect your best interests.

If you have been let down by a professional advisor and have suffered a loss as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

At Linder Myers, we deal with Professional Negligence claims across a broad range of sectors including claims against:

  • Solicitors
  • Accountants
  • Financial Advisors
  • Tax Advisors
  • Surveyors
  • Architects
  • Valuers
  • Brokers
  • Engineers
  • Insurers

When things go wrong, it can be hugely upsetting and stressful particularly when you have placed your trust and confidence in an individual adviser or firm. We understand that you may be reluctant to bring a claim in these circumstances.

Our team prides itself on having a friendly, professional and practical approach to Professional Negligence claims; we put your best interests first.

Professional Negligence is a complex and specialist area of law. There are many pitfalls that can prevent a claim from succeeding and as such, it is important to appoint a solicitor with a history of handling these claims effectively. At Linder Myers, we have experience in representing both Claimants and Defendants in Professional Negligence cases.

To make a Professional Negligence claim you need to demonstrate that:

  • You were owed a duty of care by the Professional
  • That the Professional breached this duty, and
  • That this caused you to suffer a loss.

Our team will guide and advise you carefully on the preliminary issues you need to address at the outset in order to bring or defend a claim, including the pre-action protocol requirements of the Court.

In addition, once an initial assessment of your case has been carried out, we will also explore the funding options that may be available to you.

We are also members of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association.
