Bringing an action against a professional can seem a daunting task. However, this need not be the case. If you employ a professional to provide a service or simply to obtain advice, in addition to your rights under any contract that may exist (see Contract Disputes), you may be owed a duty of care by the professional in question to provide a service to a reasonable and acceptable standard.
What constitutes a professional in such matters is defined in wide terms, encompassing everyone from solicitors, accountants and stockbrokers, to surveyors and builders and many other professions.
Successful court action against a professional is perfectly possible and can allow you to claim for damages from a professional based on the losses you have incurred as a result of acting upon the poor / inadequate advice or service you have received.
A procedure has been developed to provide a practical way to resolve these matters before they go to court. Obtaining clear advice early on from Christopher Burgon will quickly establish your entitlement, the options available to you and the chances of success of any professional negligence action you might wish to take.
