Professional Negligence Claims in Crewe and Ely


Have You Been the Victim of Professional Negligence?

Professional services such as accountancy and law are held to high standards in the UK, requiring such professionals to follow a strict behavioural code of practice at all times. Occasionally, these professionals allow their standards to slip causing a range of wide reaching consequences such as loss of earnings or delays which have significant impacts on your professional or personal life.

If you have appointed a professional entity to carry out work on your behalf which has resulted in the loss of money due to fraud or negligence, you may be able to seek compensation. Start by calling us today to speak to a member of our team so that we can gather the details of your case and assess your eligibility for compensation.

Professionals will usually have the benefit of insurance so that, assuming liability is established, you will be able to recover some or all of your losses.

Professional Negligence Solicitors You Can Trust


While we believe that most professionals adhere to high standards, we are aware of an increasing number of people who have suffered losses as a result of negligent advice. Professional negligence can also occur when the professional fails to perform their duties to the highest standard.

To succeed in making a professional negligence claim, you will need to demonstrate that you were owed a duty of care by the professional involved. You will also need to prove that the professional breached said duty of care, resulting in personal losses. Finally, you will also need to demonstrate that their services fell below the standards of a reasonably competent professional.

Of course, Bentley Solicitors will help you obtain this information and offer expert legal advice. Our professional negligence solicitors are experienced in this field and will ensure your claim is of the highest standard. If you want to know more about our professional negligence claim services, please call us or drop by our offices in Crewe or Ely.
