  • Professional negligence solicitors.

    Any professional who you employ on a fee paying basis can be brought to account for the poor quality of their service. Professionals, regardless of the industry they work in, are expected to exercise a reasonable degree of skill and care in their work. That duty will almost certainly apply if you paid for the services that they provided to you. It is important to note that the majority of professional people will work to a very high standard, however in every profession there are cases where these high standards are not met. If you have suffered a loss as a result of a professional’s or a company’s failure to provide an acceptable standard of service then this loss may provide the basis of a professional negligence claim for damages.

    If you feel that you may have a claim then at OISC our professional negligence advice solicitors can offer you both an initial assessment of your claim and an interview to discuss your case at no cost to you. That’s right, if you’ve been thinking about making a claim for professional negligence compensation but you were unsure, our free service is ideal. You will receive the opinion of one of our qualified professional negligence solicitors and if we think that you have grounds to make a professional negligence claim then we can start work on your claim the same day.

  • How we can help.

    When it comes to matters of professional negligence, getting expert legal advice from a specialist professional negligence solicitor can make all the difference to the outcome of any claim you make. To make a successful professional negligence claim, it is up to you to establish that the professional you employed, regardless of whether they were an architect, a solicitor or an engineer, owed you what is known as a professional duty of care.

    A duty of care is a requirement placed on a person, which in the case of a professional negligence compensation claim is the person employed to provide the professional service. The professional person is required to act towards another person, who in most professional negligence claims would be you, the claimant, in such a way that you do not suffer any unreasonable harm or loss. This can cover financial losses and any unreasonable inconveniences you suffer as well as the effects that professional negligence might have on your health and that of your family.

    It is important to remember that any professional negligence compensation claim you might choose to make can encompass all the effects that the negligence of a professional person could have on you and your family. This doesn’t just mean the financial effects, if for example you have been let down by an accountant, an estate agent or a financial advisor. The professional negligence of a builder, an architect or an engineer in respect of work done on your home could leave you living in a building that might be harmful to your health or even outright dangerous. In some of the worst cases, homes or offices have been left uninhabitable by the negligent actions of professionals in the building trades or by and architect or an engineer.
