    Professional Negligence Compensation Claims

    Published on: 27/03/2013

    Our solicitors have vast experience handling professional negligence compensation claims relating to a wide range of professions brought by victims all over England and Wales. Below are some of the areas we have dealt with before:

    • Negligent legal professionals including solicitors following negligent drafting and barristers following failed litigation

    Medical negligence claims against negligent surgeons, doctors, nurses and midwives etc.

    • Negligent dentists

    • Accountants, financial advisors and tax consultants for negligent advice on tax arrangements and investments for example.

    Defining Professional Negligence

    There is a difference between bad service or poor advice and negligent service or advice. Whilst you may be dissatisfied with the service you have received negligence requires the professional in question to have performed well below the standard which could be reasonably expected of a competent professional and generally speaking their action (or inaction) must cause you injury or financial loss.

    Professional Negligence Claims – Our expertise

    If you are looking to make a professional negligence compensation claim you will need to instruct an expert solicitor. This is because the complexity of such claims calls for specialist knowledge and professional experience. The solicitors in our professional negligence team are members of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association which is made up solely of specialists in this field from across the UK.

    Here are just 5 reasons why we are the right choice for your claim for compensation from a negligent professional:

    1. We offer FREE initial telephone consultations

    2. You will receive an honest assessment of the viability of your claim at your first meeting – we would never advise you to pursue a weak claim

    3. We can advise you on the best way to fund your negligence compensation claim and determine whether or not you may already have legal expenses insurance

    4. Depending on you circumstances, we can offer condition fee (or no win no fee) agreements

    Time Limits Apply

    As is the case with most claims, you have a short window of opportunity within which to make your compensation claim. In order to avoid missing out on your chance to claim compensation altogether, it is crucial that you get in touch with our experts as soon as possible.

    How to fund your professional negligence claim

    There are three main funding options available to those pursuing professional negligence cases and our solicitors will be able to quickly determine which is best suited to your financial position.

    1. Privately funding the claim: not many people are fortunate enough to be a position to do this

    2. Legal expenses insurance: you may find that an insurance policy you already hold will cover you for some of your legal expenses

    3. Conditional fee [ ie No Win No Fee] agreements: so you pay nothing if you lose and the other side pays your legal costs if you win

    Most professionals will hold professional indemnity policies to protect themselves should a claim be brought against them. These are often very high in value and solicitors for example are generally covered for upwards of £2m.
