Professional Negligence

At law, professional advisers (including lawyers) owe their client certain legal obligations. Where an adviser provides negligent advice, fails to act as instructed or acts in a manner contrary to the best interests of the client causing loss, the client may be able to seek compensation from the adviser.

Usually, the adviser is insured against these types of claims. However, dealing with insurers can be difficult and complicated – particularly if the claim for compensation is disputed.

Our litigation team at Mackinnon Jacobs Lawyers is experienced in handling professional negligence claims. We provide practical advice, including advice as to alternative methods to litigation in which you potential claim may be resolved.
