Professional Negligence

When a professional is instructed you are entitled to expect them to deal with your case with appropriate care and skill. However, it is an unfortunate truth that, from time to time, professionals can make mistakes. This can have huge implications for their clients. Rix and Kay’s team of professional negligence solicitors are experienced in analysing the circumstances and implications of your case and advising you or your business on the options available to compensate for lack of care or mistakes.

As a team of specialists we are able to not only advise on the professional negligence claim itself but also to protect, advise and assist with legal remedies across a wide range of areas to rectify the position you or your business are left in as a result of this negligence. This could mean advising on contractual issues, to resolving property related matters.

For further information on the areas of dispute resolution we advise upon, please contact us and/or see related pages on this website. In considering a professional negligence claim against a professional advisor (which may include accountants, surveyors, engineers, or other firms of solicitors amongst many others) we carefully consider what duty of care was owed, whether that duty of care has been breached and whether the advice given adheres to common standards of practice in that field.

We undertake a costs/benefit analysis with you and identify the strengths and any weaknesses of your case. We work with you to consider your options and to negotiate a satisfactory settlement. We understand that legal costs can be daunting. We will provide you with a detailed estimate of costs at the outset so there are no surprises; keep you informed as to costs and work with you to control them.

In addition to court action, we make full use of mediation when appropriate as this is a cost and time effective method to achieve settlement and allows you to keep in control. We will discuss the most suitable steps at all times to assist you in dealing with what can be a distressing time.
