Professional Negligence 

Lincoln & Rowe can assist with claims of professional negligence against any person(s) who fails to perform their professional duty to the required standard. If the individual is considered to be fully competent in their area of expertise and their lack of care has resulted in a loss then you may be entitled to make a claim.

What do I need to make a claim?

In order to bring about a claim of professional negligence, you will need to provide evidence that the professional involved has failed to perform their duty of care and this breach caused a loss to you. In addition, it is necessary to demonstrate that the services or advice provided were inadequate based on the reasonable standard expected of the professional.

Claims for professional negligence may be based on one or more of the following:

  • Breach of duty of care
  • Breach of statutory duty
  • Breach of a contractual term (this can either be express or implied terms)

Due to the fact that professional negligence involves experts, it can be complex and one which you will need expert advice to decide on the merits of an action and the appropriate path to take.

At Lincoln & Rowe, our expert litigation solicitors can carefully assess your case and provide professional advice on how to proceed with a resolution. We have years of expertise in proceeding with professional negligence claims.
