Negligence Claims

If a company or professional is negligent, and that negligence causes damage to you, you may be able to claim compensation for your loss.

This can range from consumer products to failure to properly execute contracts. If the loss is by a professional, i.e. a solicitor or an accountant, there are special tests for determining whether they are negligent and what damages they should pay.

We have experienced litigation solicitors who can advise you on a wide range of potential negligence claims whether medical or professional. We can also explain clearly the pre-action protocol that applies to your claim.

Proving Negligence

In order to establish that you have a claim, you must prove;

  • A contractual term or a duty of care; 
  • A breach of that term or duty;
  • That such breach caused you damage; and
  • That the such damage is not too remote

We will take the time to evaluate your situation and consider and explain to you the legal tests that must be met and advise you as to whether or not you have sufficient grounds to bring a successful claim.

Types of Negligence

Our litigation team can advise you on claims where accountants, surveyors or lawyers may have been negligent and caused you loss and damage

Where such negligence occurs the loss suffered may be considerable. Seeking damages for such large losses can be a complex and difficult exercise.  It is, therefore, essential that you understand the legal and evidential tests to be met to successfully bring such a claim.

Where appropriate we act for clients under a Conditional fee agreement (CFA) which is sometimes referred to as “a no win no fee agreement”.  If you would like to discuss this type of funding for your case please ask and we will be pleased to discuss the details with you.
