In truth anyone who says that they can do a particular job is a ‘professional’. So how does one take a negligence case against a professional who causes financial or bodily injury?
DEFINITION OF A ‘PROFESSIONAL’ IN NEGLIGENCE CASES
Traditionally a professional was seen to refer to someone practising in a trade which was regulated by a professional body such as a solicitor, accountant, architect, engineer, veterinary surgeon etc.
Nowadays, anyone who is retained to do a job, as expected, can be regarded as a professional within their own sphere of expertise, and, as such, a builder, plumber or electrician can be regarded as professionals.
Professionals have to adhere to a certain standard and have a duty to do his/her job by the book.
If for some reason they do not do their job properly and by the book’and that failure by them is a recognised breach in their duty of care to you, and because of this you get hurt or suffer a loss financially, then there is something you can do.
You can seek the advice of a solicitor and seek advice to determine if you may be able to take a case against that professional in Professional Negligence. [See also our Medical Negligence practice page here.
