Most of us will need to take professional advice on something throughout our lives. This may include advice from surveyors, solicitors, architects, insurance brokers, or financial advisors.
We rely on professional advice to guide us in taking decisions such as buying a house, starting legal proceedings or investing money.
When that advice is wrong, it can have devastating consequences. When the advice is so wrong that an advisor has either failed to follow a common standard or practice or where another experienced professional in the same field would have given different advice, that advice may be negligent. Most professionals carry insurance, after all we can all make mistakes.
Some examples of negligent advice include:
- A solicitor missing a limitation date deadline for starting a Personal Injury claim or failing to advise correctly on the law
- A surveyor failing to identify a key defect in a building prior to purchase such as subsidence or non standard construction
- A financial advisor recommending that you invest in a certain product that in fact was not suitable for you
If you have received negligent advice which has caused you to suffer loss, the law is on your side and you may be able to make a claim against the professional to recover your losses.
This might be the likely compensation you may have recovered in a personal injury case, the reduction in value of your property in the case of a negligent surveyor, or your financial losses after investing in a product that was not suitable for you.
Our team will:
- Assess your claim – do you have a good chance of recovering your losses?
- Advise you on any time limits and the process of bringing a claim
- Represent you throughout your claim providing expert advice at every stage
How is this funded?
For an initial discussion to assess whether you have a good chance of recovering your losses, advising you on the time limits and the process of bringing a claim, we charge a fixed fee of £240 including VAT.
We can then discuss with you the other options for funding your claim including whether you have insurance in place for this type of claim or whether we are able to offer a Conditional Fee Agreement (No Win, No Fee).
Why should I act now?
There are strict time limits so contacting us at the earliest possible stage maximises your chances of a successful claim.
