Professional Negligence Claims

What is professional negligence?

By law, a professional providing a service has a duty to exercise a reasonable degree of skill and care. When a professional’s service or conduct falls short of that duty of care, the client may have a right of action against that professional and receive compensation for any loss suffered.

The loss or damage must be identifiable and the client has to prove that they are worse off as a result of the professional’s negligence.
