Professional Negligence

Harold G Walker Solicitors know there are occasions when businesses and commercial clients are let down in their business dealings by someone they trust. Professional Negligence is always distressing and can be very damaging.

If you receive poor service from a professional (for example, an accountant, surveyor or lawyer) whose organisation boasts a membership of various professional bodies apparently ensuring best practice, the feeling of being let down can be even greater. Complaints against a professional services company are sometimes met with an unhelpful response, even when there is a regulatory body to whom you can turn. The specialist litigation team can help you cut through the jargon that may be used to muddy the waters if your initial complaint is not treated seriously.

Using these specialists to pursue a negligence claim shows that your business means business. Once a claim is presented, the litigation team will often find that your supplier will wish to settle. They will also be able to look for alternative methods of resolving disputes apart from bringing the matter to court.

The Litigation solicitors can help you with:

  • Consideration of duty of care
  • Breach of duty
  • Calculation of damages
  • Quantifying damage and preparation of the report
  • Solicitors/accountants/surveyors/architects etc.
  • Provision of Expert evidence in Court
  • Claimants and Defendants
  • Single joint expert
  • Pre-issue advice on quantum and liability
  • Settlement negotiations
