Negligence claims against doctors, hospitals and other professionals
Duncan has conducted numerous successful claims for damages and compensation in relation to negligence by surveyors, solicitors, accountants and financial advisors, including ‘class’ or group actions by many claimants acting together.
It is necessary to show a duty of care was owed by the professional, that the duty has been breached and that damage has resulted to the claimant.
Such disputes can often be resolved relatively informally with the professional concerned or by involvement of the professional’s regulatory body or the relevant ombudsman (e.g. the Financial Ombudsman Service).
Third party funding may be available to bring such claims. Duncan can advise on this free of charge.
