Professional Negligence

Professionals are required by law to perform their services competently and diligently.

This duty is imposed on many professionals, including:

  • Doctors;
  • Financial planners;
  • Particular business advisors;
  • Lawyers and other legal professionals;
  • Accountants; and
  • Valuers.

Where the services provided fall below the standard expected of a reasonable professional in their field, you may be able to claim compensation as a result. This is because the professional has acted negligently.

To establish a claim for professional negligence, you are required to prove that:

  • The professional owed you a duty of care;
  • The professional breached that duty of care because they did not act competently and/or diligently;
  • You have suffered loss as a result of that breach; and
  • The breach caused your loss.
