When it comes to the welfare of your business, home or family – nothing is more important. If you’ve put your trust in a professional and they’ve let you down, you may be able to claim compensation for professional negligence over the loss you’ve suffered.
Professionals such as solicitors, accountants, engineers have a legal duty to do their jobs ‘by the book’. If they don’t, and you get hurt, we can help.
Making a compensation claim for negligence
If you think you have a case for professional negligence, the next step is to seek legal advice over what has happened. The Shine Lawyers team provide an obligation-free consultation on exactly that, and will be able to advise you on the viability of your claim and what to do.
People can often take the blame themselves, put it down to a lack of experience or be told that "these things happen", without realising that many professionals have a duty of care to provide you with the best guidance they can. Don't overlook this if you have been left out of pocket by poor professional advice. Get in touch today.
