You may be able to make a claim if a professional provided you with service or advice that fell short of what a reasonable professional ought to have done. To make a successful claim, you must have suffered financial loss as a direct result. You must also have had some form of reliance on the service or advice of the professional.
Compensation will reimburse the loss you suffered as a direct result of the professional’s misconduct. It may also cover any lost profits and expenses which flowed from it. Interest may be available on the loss of the use of your funds.
Examples of situations which might give rise to a professional negligence case include:
- Poor financial advice
- Accountancy errors
- Subpar engineering
- Incorrect property valuations
- Substandard legal advice
