Frequently Asked Questions 

What is professional negligence, and how does it differ from other legal issues? 

Professional negligence refers to the failure of a professional to perform their duties to a reasonable standard of care, resulting in harm or loss to their client. Unlike other legal issues, such as contract disputes or personal injury claims, professional negligence involves a breach of duty by a professional, such as a doctor, lawyer, accountant, or architect.

How do I know if I have a valid professional negligence claim? 

You may have a valid professional negligence claim if you can demonstrate that a professional owed you a duty of care and breached that duty through negligent actions or omissions. As a result, you suffered harm or loss. 

Consulting with experienced professional negligence lawyers can help assess your case.

What steps should I take if I suspect professional negligence has happened? 

If you suspect professional negligence, it’s essential to gather relevant documentation, including contracts, communications, and any evidence of harm or loss. Then, seek advice from professional negligence solicitors who can evaluate your case and guide you on the appropriate course of action.

What evidence is required to support a professional negligence claim? 

Evidence supporting a professional negligence claim may include documentation of the professional-client relationship, records of communications, contracts, expert opinions, and evidence of harm or financial loss incurred due to the professional’s actions or omissions.

Can I still pursue a claim if I signed a waiver or disclaimer? 

Signing a waiver or disclaimer does not necessarily prevent you from pursuing a professional negligence claim. The enforceability of such documents depends on various factors, including the circumstances of the case, the nature of the negligence, and the applicable laws. 

Consulting with lawyers can help assess the validity of any waivers or disclaimers.

What if the negligent professional is no longer practising or has gone out of business? 

Even if the negligent professional is no longer practising or has gone out of business, you may still be able to pursue a professional negligence claim. In such cases, it may be necessary to explore avenues for compensation through insurance policies or professional indemnity schemes.
