What is a Professional Negligence Claim?
A Professional Negligence Claim is where a company or individual seek legal recourse and financial compensation to recompense for financial losses brought about due to the sub-standard service or negligent advice from a professional organisation or a professional individual.
Professional negligence occurs when a person working in a professional capacity, such as a solicitor, accountant, architect or financial adviser delivers a service that falls well below the standards expected of them, resulting in their client experiencing any sort of loss, financial or otherwise.
Every professional is required to perform their job with appropriate care, skill and diligence and in line with the code of conduct for their industry.
If you feel that you have suffered as a result of professional negligence then contact PSR Solicitors for further advice.
Am I eligible for compensation?

Our expertise in handling Professional Negligence Claims
Professional negligence is an extremely specialist area of the law so it is vital that you instruct a firm of solicitors with the necessary skill and expertise to secure you a positive outcome.
We have an excellent track record when it comes to securing the maximum amount of compensation money available for our clients and aim to settle all claims as swiftly and efficiently as possible to minimise the stress and financial impact on you and your loved ones.
By instructing PSR Solicitors you are guaranteed a legal team with the experience and technical knowledge that you should expect from those representing you and who possess an understanding of the complex issues involved and the technicalities that your case may come up against.
We have a formidable reputation across the industry for resolving even the most difficult of cases and we regularly handle professional negligence claims against:
Accountants hold positions of great responsibility when it comes to ensuring that our financial interests are protected. We trust them to make the very best decisions on our behalf to make sure that our finances are secure and that any investments are working for us in the way that we want. Where the professional advice and service provided by an accountant falls below the standard expected the resulting financial losses can be disastrous and you will have every right to pursue a compensation claim to recover the lost assets.
The specialist skills required of an architect are paramount due to the direct impact that their work has on public safety. There are a number of reasons why you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation against your architect including instances where they have submitted unsuitable building specifications, the on-site supervision they have provided is insufficient and unsafe, they have taken on a job beyond their skill and capabilities or they have approved defective or poor construction work.
Buying a property is one of the biggest financial commitments you can make so it is essential that any advice given to you by your surveyor is accurate and informed. Where the service you receive falls short of this, the risk of significant financial loss is high and you may be able to make a claim as a result.
Negligent Financial Advisers
A financial adviser is considered to be guilty of professional negligence if they have failed to assess your needs and financial situation, given advice to you on products or investments that are unsuitable or unaffordable or failed to provide clear and sufficient advice on the potential risks of a particular investment.
Negligent Solicitors & Barristers
For anyone seeking legal advice and representation, lawyers provide an invaluable and vital service but when mistakes are made they can prove costly and harmful. We have successfully pursued professional negligence claims on behalf of clients who have suffered as a result of an exceptionally poor legal service including missed deadlines, incorrect advice, inadequate research, under-settling a personal injury claim and errors in documents such as leases and wills.
How do I make a Professional Negligence Claim?
You generally need to make a claim within 6 years of the negligent service although this can be extended by three years if it is only discovered at a later date.
To proceed with your claim as quickly as possible contact us at the earliest opportunity with more information to give you the best chance of a successful outcome.
We will access the duty of care that you were owed by the professional you had instructed and will thoroughly examine the evidence to establish how this duty was breached. It will be essential that we can clearly demonstrate how their actions resulted in any sort of loss to you and the direct harm that has been caused.
We always aim to seek early resolution through mediation and negotiation to any professional negligence claim without the need for court action but where court proceedings do take place, we will thoroughly prepare your case and expertly represent you.
