What is professional negligence?
Professional negligence is where a professional person fails to perform to the standards required of them, which results in their client suffering damage or loss.
When a professional person is instructed to undertake work, they have a duty of care to their client to perform their job to a reasonable standard and with reasonable care.
If the professional has not provided a reasonable level of skill and care to the level of service or standard of work that you could reasonably expect from them, then you could have grounds to make a professional negligence claim.
