Professional negligence

We all need to rely on the advice of professionals at some point and take actions based on their sound advice. You may, for example, rely on the advice of a medical professional in taking a certain treatment option or not pursuing a treatment at all, you may act on the advice of a financial advisor and commit substantial savings to an investment opportunity, or you may choose to purchase a property based on the advice of a surveyor. There are a number of different scenarios where we may seek out the advice of an expert, only for that advice to be ill-founded and cause significant detriment to you as a result.

Professionals have a duty of care to those they provide advice to in that they must be qualified to offer the advice they are giving and they must give due diligence before offering the advice. Where a duty of care to you by the professional can be established, they have breached that duty of care by offering bad advice, and you have suffered a loss or damage as a result of acting on that bad advice, you will be entitled to make a claim of professional negligence.

There has been a rise in professional negligence claims in recent years as people are becoming more aware of their rights and the fact that they do not have to suffer in silence. To understand if you have a claim, and for a Free Initial Assessment, contact our professional negligence solicitors in Henley on 01491 411 884.
