Professional negligence deals with compensation claims arising from the negligence of a “professional” person.
Professional negligence compensation claims can cover negligence by:
- Financial experts such as accountants, bankers, auditors, insolvency practitioners, trustees and brokers
- Building and construction consultants, including architects, engineers, builders and building designers
- Legal advisers such as lawyers, barristers and legal agents
- Marketing professionals such as advertising agents
- Computer consultants, trade mark attorneys and patent attorneys
- Property consultants such as real estate agents, surveyors, valuers and conveyancers
Professionals are usually placed under greater scrutiny because when they fall short of their duty of care it can often lead to extremely damaging results.
Personal injury, economic loss, emotional distress and even death can arise from professional negligence.
In recent times, telemarketing investment scams and financial scams have become a major concern in society. Many people have suffered devastating financial loss and harm due to scams involving misrepresentation of market value of properties or false advice on how to pay off an investment.
My previous solicitors seemed unable to accomplish what you are able to act on so quickly and efficiently and for which we are truly grateful to you for. In fact every single request we have made to you has been acted on with competence and efficiency and I just wanted you to know that. So thank you for all you are doing for us.
