Professional negligence occurs where a professional person (this could be a financial adviser, valuer, surveyor, accountant or solicitor) fails to perform to the standards required of them, resulting in their client suffering damage or loss.
In order to bring a claim in professional negligence, you will need to establish three key elements:
- First that the professional owed a duty of care to you
- Second the professional must have fallen below the standards of a reasonably competent professional and
- Third the loss or damage was caused by the professional’s breach, and was reasonably foreseeable
