Professional Negligence

Professional Negligence

Compensation for professional negligence: Sometimes a professional can make a mistake that ends up costing you; the client. If you feel your case wasn’t settled properly or that your solicitor made a mistake which has caused you loss, Irvings can look into this for you. We can also investigate whether there has been negligence by any other professional who has advised you (e.g accountant, mortgage broker or surveyor).

Examples of professional negligence

  • Your solicitor misses the limitation deadline for your claim; resulting in the loss of the claim
  • Your solicitor fails to value the claim properly and settles it for less than it was worth
  • Your solicitor make deductions from damages without agreement
  • Your financial advisor recommends an unsuitable mortgage product

Case study

David had a case of complex commercial litigation against a solicitor after losing a claim. The professional advisers took his 2.5 million pound claim on, but ultimately failed.  His solicitors hadn’t obtained appropriate legal expenses insurance to cover his exposure to third party costs, and as a result David faced a bill of £400,000 for the failed litigation! David contacted Irvings, told us his circumstances and we pursued a claim against the former solicitors, attacking them for failing to obtain appropriate insurance.  We helped settle the debt for David, who was facing bankruptcy because of this instance of professional negligence.
