What is professional negligence?

Professional negligence happens when a professional, irrespective of their industry, fails to carry out their responsibilities to the required standard. A professional is a person that is trusted in their abilities as they are considered to have a high level of expertises and skill in the services that they offer. In order to be eligible to make a professional negligence claim, you will need to show that you were owed a duty of care by the professional and that this duty of care was breached which resulted in a loss to you.

Do I have a claim for professional negligence?

Proof must be submitted with a professional negligence claim in order for the claimant to be successful in the case. The proof that is submitted must demonstrate that the service levels received from the professional were of a substandard level when compared to those considered as reasonably acceptable for the industry. The normal standards of the industry will be assessed in order to determine whether there was a shortfall between expected levels and those received. The claimant will need to submit evidence relating to the promises made by the professional, the costs of work, the services given and the results. Upon receipt of this information, a thorough assessment of the case will commence, and eligibility will be confirmed, losses reviewed and compensation negotiations will begin.

What is the time limit for making a claim?

The majority of people are given a time limit of six years to initiate their professional negligence claim from the date of the negligent act. In some cases, the negligence may not be immediately apparent and so, at the court’s discretion, this time limit may be extended. The solicitor will encourage their client to begin their claim as early as possible to maximise eligibility. The professional negligence solicitor will also guide their client on how to proceed in order to minimise delays and reach a favourable outcome as quickly as possible. This may include following the ‘Professional Negligence Pre-Action Protocol', which means that all parties share information openly in order to save time and costs and aim to reach settlement out of court.

Will I need to go to court?

If a settlement cannot be achieved through the Professional Negligence Pre-Action Protocol, court proceedings will need to begin. It will take approximately a year to reach the court hearing date once the court proceedings are commenced. It will usually be necessary for the claimant, defendant and any witnesses to attend the court hearing in order to provide evidence. The solicitor will aim to complete settlements out of court and this is the usual outcome in the majority of professional negligence claims.
