Professional Negligence Solicitors
Whether you’ve been accused of professional negligence or you’re pursuing a negligence claim, our experienced solicitors can help.
We’ve worked with individual and businesses of all sizes across the South West to help them defend or pursue claims of professional negligence. Our decades of experience in this area means that we can help you establish the best way to move forwards.
“We understand that, from time to time, professionals fall short of what is expected of them and what they are engaged to do. Sometimes, the standard is so low it could be negligent. In which case it may lead to negative repercussions, such as financial loss. At the same time, we realise that professionals require the right advice when things go wrong. We are here to help when this happens, by guiding you through what is often a difficult time.”
Jamie Carr, Solicitor
Professionals of all kinds, whether they are accountants, financial advisers, architects, brokers or solicitors, are held to professional standards. If a professional fails to meet these high standards, it can in some cases be classed as professional negligence. This can take many forms, including the provision of bad advice, poor accounting, or a missed deadline.
It is crucial that any financial losses caused by this kind of negligence is recoverable by the party that suffered. This is where the team at Nash & Co Solicitors in Plymouth can help you. We’ll work with you to seek the compensation you are entitled to as a result of the negligence. Whether this resulted in a loss of profits, damages to your reputation or an injury. We will fight for you to gain financial reimbursement.
Regrettably, professionals may find themselves from time to time on the receiving end of an accusation of negligence. This is never pleasant for any professional, no matter how experienced or hardened to these claims they may be. We will be able to offer the help and advice you need for the situation you are in.
If this sounds like your circumstances, please pay us a visit or get in touch to talk it through.
How we can help you
