Negligence claims tend to be robustly defended and complex as the ability to prove the link between the professional's advice and the loss suffered is not straightforward. This emphasises the need to obtain the right representation, experience and approach from the outset.
In most instances, the party who has suffered loss will be able to claim damages by way of remedy and often the professional will have an indemnity insurance policy in place to fund the payment of damages and costs. We advise on the tactics and potential pitfalls in bringing professional negligence claims and always aim to reach a negotiated settlement where possible.
