If you have received inadequate advice from a qualified professional and have suffered as a result of their professional negligence, Osmond and Osmond's specialist professional negligence lawyers can help you.
We can advise you on whether you have a claim, how strong that claim is and what sort of compensation you might expect to receive if your claim is successful. Compensation can cover things like your financial losses, legal expenses, stress, injuries, loss of reputation and time off work.
Professionals Must Exercise Reasonable Skill and Care
Doctors, lawyers and surveyors are all highly trained and qualified professionals; we have to trust them with our investments, finances and even our lives. Most people do not have in-depth knowledge of legal, medical and property issues, so they often have to blindly rely on the expertise and experience of professionals.
As a result of this, professionals are obliged to exercise 'reasonable skill and care' when providing advice. Unfortunately, if the advice they give falls below the high standard required, it can amount to 'professional negligence' resulting in serious financial and other, sometimes devastating, consequences for those involved.

At the same time we will vigorously pursue your objectives and best interests, heading to court where necessary to secure a just outcome.

Osmond and Osmond's Professional Negligence Experience
We have particular experience in bringing professional negligence actions against the following professions:
- Legal - solicitors and barristers. For example, if a lawyer acting on your behalf missed an important court deadline or simply did not have the necessary expertise to advise you properly.
- Property - architects, surveyors and valuers. For example, if an architect provided inadequate plans, or failed to oversee your project correctly.
- Medical – doctors, dentists and other health professionals. For example, if a doctor misdiagnosed your illness or advised you to follow incorrect treatment procedures.
If you have been let down by inadequate professional advice in any of these areas and would like to claim compensation for your losses, contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 0207 583 3434 today for more information.
