Professional Negligence

We cut through the problems to deliver clear, decisive solutions.

Professional negligence claims can be complex and challenging, often requiring specialist knowledge and skill. Thomas Harvey Solicitors are experts in this area. If you have enlisted the services of a professional and they have failed to meet the standard the law requires of them, resulting in a loss to you, we can help. 

What is Professional Negligence?

Professional negligence occurs when a professional fails to perform their duties to the required standard, leading to harm or financial loss to their client. This could involve professionals from various fields, including solicitors, financial advisors, accountants, surveyors, architects and more.

The crux of a professional negligence claim involves proving that the professional had a duty of care towards the client, that this duty was breached, and that the breach led to a loss or harm to the client.

At Thomas Harvey Solicitors, we understand the nuances of these claims and work diligently to ensure our clients receive the justice they deserve. We are committed to achieving client-focused outcomes and satisfaction, driven by our core values of professionalism, knowledge, and compassion.
