Professional Negligence Articles and News

Any professional, whether they are a solicitor, a surveyor, an accountant or a barrister, has an obligation to advise you properly and with an appropriate level of expertise. If a solicitor or barrister gives you the wrong legal advice, the results can be catastrophic. Similarly, if a surveyor misses a major fault with a property you are buying, you could be left with a disaster to sort out. The good news is that in the vast majority of cases, the professional will have insurance, and so you won’t have to worry about them going bankrupt if you make a claim against them. Professional negligence claims are a niche and specialist area of law, and so it is important to take advice from a lawyer who knows how to handle these cases, from the very outset. Samuels Solicitors has dealt with professional negligence claims for over 30 years, settling many large and complex disputes and recovering significant damages for clients in that time. We are of course also experienced in taking professional negligence cases to court, although we understand that most clients would wish to avoid the expense if at all possible.
