    FAQs - Professional Negligence Lawyers

    What constitutes professional negligence?

    It refers to a breach of the duty of care by professionals which results in financial loss, damage, or harm to their client. 

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

    You need to demonstrate that the professional owed you a duty of care, that they breached this duty, and that this breach directly resulted in your loss or damage. 

    Is there a time limit for filing a professional negligence claim?

    Typically, in England & Wales, you have six years from the date of the negligent act or three years from when you first became aware of it to make a claim. 

    How is compensation determined in negligence cases?

    Compensation aims to put the claimant in the position they would have been in had the negligence not occurred. It considers financial loss, costs of rectification, and sometimes emotional distress. 

    Do all negligence claims go to court?

    No, many are settled through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. However, if a resolution cannot be reached, the case may proceed to court. 

    What is the difference between negligence and malpractice?

    While both relate to a breach of duty of care, malpractice is specifically related to professionals like doctors or lawyers failing in their specific duties. 

    Can I claim for negligence against a firm or only an individual?

    You can claim against both. If an individual’s negligent actions represent a firm, the firm can also be held liable. 

    How can I prove financial loss due to negligence?

    By presenting evidence such as financial statements, invoices, and expert testimonies that showcase the monetary impact of the professional’s negligence. 

    What should I do if I suspect I'm a victim of professional negligence?

    Consult with a specialised solicitor, gather all relevant documents, and seek expert opinions if needed to bolster your claim. 

    Can an apology from a professional be considered an admission of guilt?

    Not necessarily. While it can be a factor, an apology alone doesn’t automatically constitute an admission of professional negligence.
