Unfortunately, there are occasions when professionals can and do make mistakes. These mistakes can be extremely stressful for those involved and can lead to serious consequences.

Inadequate or thoughtless advice from professionals is known as professional negligence. Victims of professional negligence may be entitled to claim compensation.

At Cognitive Law we have expert professional negligence solicitors who can help deal with complex claims. We understand the stress caused by such cases and will always approach your case with care and sensitivity.

Often when advice is given beyond a professionals’ expertise, or the professional does not have the required knowledge to deal with a certain case professional negligence occurs. Our solicitors at Cognitive Law can help establish when such mistakes are made and can guide clients through the process of making a professional negligence claim.

Making a professional Negligence claim

If you feel you have been a victim of professional negligence you can make a claim based on one of the following grounds:

  1. If you can demonstrate that another experienced professional in the same field would have offered different advice.
  2. If you can demonstrate that the advisor in question failed to adhere to the common standards of practice in their field.

There are often time limits for making a claim and these are crucial to understand. When it comes to making claims against professionals you usually have 6 years within which to lodge court proceedings. If you are making a claim about the service provided by the professional, then you will need to adhere to the time limits from the professional body they belong to. Each professional body has its own time limits.
