What is ‘negligence’?

At some point in our lives we will pay someone to undertake a particular task. That could be anyone from an electrician to a surgeon. If that professional person makes a mistake, it could have serious personal and/or financial consequences. The person or company may have provided inadequate or incorrect advice resulting in this loss, this can be very distressing and you may not have anywhere to turn to seek redress.

A claim or a complaint?

It is sometimes difficult to know where to turn when you have been let down by a professional person or company. You may feel frustrated and undervalued by the professional person or his/her employer. They may not be listening to your concerns and needs. Your experience may lead you to believe that the standard of advice and professionalism that you expected is not being delivered or achieved. Most if not all professional people must comply with a strict code of conduct. They are also most likely to be regulated by a professional body or institution. Professionals generally take their professional obligations very seriously.

Do I have a case?

To give you an idea whether you have a claim against a professional, we have provided a guide against which all claims will be vetted. We will try to assess your claim at the initial contact stage but sometimes this is not possible. We may need to undertake investigations and obtain documents such as medical records and your professional’s file of papers.
