The UK is fortunate to have dedicated professionals in such fields as law and accountancy, with representative bodies such as the Law Society, the Bar Council, the Institute of Chartered Accountants and others that usually ensure an exceptionally high standard of service. Sometimes, and thankfully rarely, professionals in the UK do not meet those exceptionally high standards. In most circumstances, a professional will have a duty of care to his or her client. If a professional has breached their duty of care (either in contract or in tort), the victim is usually entitled to recover damages. The professional will usually appoint an insurer, who will try to get away with paying as little as possible, and sometimes nothing at all. It is important to take specialist legal advice at an early stage to ensure your best interests are protected and any loss suffered is fully compensated. We deal with all professional negligence claims, including claims against:
- Medical professionals (medical negligence)
- Financial advisors
