You are entitled to expect a high standard of care from any professional instructed by you. However, it is an unfortunate fact of life that even the most able professionals occasionally make mistakes, and some mistakes can have serious financial consequences.
Whether a mistake will give rise to a claim for recovery of the losses suffered depends on proving that there has been a failure to maintain expected standards of care. Where a mistake amounts to negligence, early case assessment by a lawyer experienced in dealing with professional negligence issues will ensure that the case is properly considered on its merits, enabling an informed and commercial view to be taken on whether and how to progress a claim for damages. This may include going to trial if required, but in most situations a settlement can be achieved long before any trial.
