Professional Negligence Solicitors Manchester
Our Manchester-based professional negligence team is headed up by Paul Walton who is one of UK’s professional negligence lawyers. He joined us in May 2011 and is a former managing and senior partner of Hill Dickinson.
Professional negligence touches on many complex areas of the law, and many requirements have to be met in order to bring a successful compensation claim. Our team acts for claimants who have received wrong or bad advice from professional service suppliers such as accountants, architects, estate agents, surveyors and independent financial consultants.
We will only pursue your claim if we believe it is in your best interests. Prior to starting a claim, we will address the following:
- Duty of care: were you owed a duty of care by the professional?
- Breach of duty: did their conduct fall below the expected standard?
- Damage and/or loss: did the breach cause you to suffer any damage or loss?
If it is found that you have suffered a loss or damage, our team will use their expertise to recover any damages and costs you have had to deal with from the responsible party.
Procedures and court proceedings
We always aim to deal with matters as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, and will work hard to settle your dispute without going through court proceedings. However, we understand that this is not always possible. If the matter cannot be resolved outside of court, you will get expert representation from one of our solicitors who will strive to prove that professional negligence has taken place and secure you the settlement that you deserve.
Getting ‘stung’ by a professional adviser that you trust can be a harrowing and costly experience. Our professional negligence department is here to help people who have been affected by inaccurate or poor advice. Whatever your individual circumstances, our team will take the time to listen to you and act on your behalf to make sure that you are fully compensated for the ordeal.
