If you are a victim of inadequate advice or unsatisfactory conduct from a qualified, professional person that meant you lost out financially then you may be able to make a Professional Negligence compensation claim.
If professionals fail to exercise “reasonable skill and care” when dealing with clients, which they are legally bound to do, then they may be liable for damages. Their mistake must have been one that a reasonable professional working in the same field would not have made, and it meant you lost money as a direct result of said mistake.
Professional negligence claims can involve all manner of professionals, including:
- Financial advisers
- Insurance Brokers
- Tax consultants
Professional Negligence claims are becoming increasingly common and many clients are winning the compensation they deserve. If you believe you have grounds for a complaint against a professional person then don’t hesitate to get in touch with Vincents Claims Solicitors.

How to make a Professional Negligence claim
Professional negligence is a complex area of law requiring specific litigation experience and expertise, which is why using one of our expert solicitors is highly advisable.
For a professional negligence claim to be successful, you will need to establish the existence of a duty of care on the part of the professional, and that this duty has been breached.
When making a claim for professional negligence, there is a certain procedure to follow, introduced by the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) in 1998. If you don’t follow the procedure then you run the risk of incurring cost penalties or even your case being thrown out completely.
In most cases co-operation between you and the defendant will enable the case to be settled without going to court, but if no agreement is reached then you may take your case further.
Our specialist Professional Negligence solicitors can guide you through the whole meticulous process whilst providing help and support wherever we can. We understand that you have already been let down by a professional so we aim to make the process of recovering compensation for you as quick and painless as possible.
