Professional Negligence

If you have suffered loss or damage as a result of poor professional advice or mismanagement of your affairs, you may be entitled to compensation.

Our experienced Professional Negligence Team is headed by an Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation and are on hand to help you resolve your matter promptly whether it has arisen in Newcastle, Sydney or elsewhere in NSW.

Professional Negligence Claims

Professionals such as Solicitors, Accountants, Financial Planners, Engineers and Valuers owe their clients a legal duty of care.

Where a professional advisor fails to exercise reasonable care and skill when providing you with advice or managing your affairs you may have a right to compensation if that failure caused you to suffer a foreseeable financial loss.

If your professional advisor has breached their duty of care you are entitled to recover compensation in the amount that will put you back in your original financial position.
