It seems that each week we hear of a new digital security breach that compromises users' sensitive data. When such a breach results in harm to an individual or business, there may be grounds for a claim of professional negligence.

Did you receive, through your personal injury claim, all of the compensation you needed? If not, then your personal injury solicitor may have neglected his or her duties.
The solicitors of Ronald Fletcher & Co. understand that buying or selling a home can be extremely stressful. When negotiating and completing what could be one of the most decisive transactions you ever make, it is important to have the guidance of a conveyancing solicitor.
Professionals such as accountants, engineers, architects and providers of legal advice and services can cover themselves against legal claims by purchasing professional indemnity insurance.
We hold professionals such as accountants, architects, solicitors and doctors to a high standard of service for good reason. Negligence in any one of these professions can result in serious harm to clients or patients, whether the harm is financial or physical. When professional negligence results in loss to you, then you may pursue compensation from the party responsible for the loss.
If you own a business, then you undoubtedly rely heavily on your accounts to make decisions regarding the short and long terms. Accounts also must be current and detailed in order to calculate taxes and accurately value the company.
When considering the purchase of a home, you undoubtedly expect your conveyancing solicitor to carry out all of the necessary searches to ensure that the property, and those surrounding, will be conducive to your enjoyment of your new residence.
One issue that sometimes comes up in cases of solicitor negligence is that our client -- the claimant -- is understandably reticent to challenge his or her former solicitor.

For many people who have been harmed because of professional negligence, the initial trouble is that they don't know how to start the process of holding the negligent party to account. To whom does one turn when faced with financial harm caused by the faulty work of an accountant, architect, surveyor, solicitor or other professional?
