Professional negligence relates to claims against professionals whom you instruct to undertake a piece of work that you cannot complete yourself and you have to pay them for it. It’s where you expect a higher level of competency than if you were to have the work completed by a member of the public. Professionals include:
- Financial advisors
In order to bring a successful professional negligence claim we have to show that a professional owed you a duty of care, that they breached their duty of care and that as a direct result of that breach you suffered loss, usually financial.
Breach of duty
Breach of duty in negligence liability may be found to exist where the professional fails to meet the standard of care required by law. Once it has been established that the professional owed the you a duty of care, we must also demonstrate that the professional was in breach of that duty and that the loss suffered was caused by the breach.
