Professional Negligence Solicitor

Professional Negligence

Most of us will require professional advice at some point and expect it to be delivered with skill and care. Sometimes your advisor can fail to meet the standards that are required of them. If you believe that has happened, we will work with you to identify if your advisor has been negligent and how to put forward a claim.

How we can help

Professional negligence claims can arise from administrative errors, technical and legal errors or in some cases disregard for your best interests. They can lead to financial losses, wasted time and significant distress. At Hay & Kilner we have a strong reputation for handling professional negligence claims against a variety of professionals and recovering financial compensation if appropriate.

At Hay & Kilner we will advise you on the best way to resolve your dispute whether that is through the courts, mediation or a complaint to the relevant professional body. We will be by your side through what can be a stressful situation and will always have an eye on costs ensuring a cost-effective solution is achieved in respect of any claim.
