At Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, our professional negligence lawyers are specialists. When you contact us, we will assess your situation and give preliminary advice about the viability of your claim.
If your claim is upheld, compensation can be awarded for things like financial loss, and loss of profit caused by the negligence. Indirect expenses, such as costs incurred to resolve problems caused by the negligence, legal costs, and other out of pocket expenses may also be awarded.
In most cases, a professional negligence lawyer will make every effort to settle your matter through negotiations with the professional indemnity insurer – or its legal representative. However, if dispute resolution fails to resolve the matter, our lawyers are experienced litigators and can take your case to court. We will be with you every step of the way so that you can make informed decisions with the benefit of our advice and recommendations.
Negligence is established by identifying the standard of care owed to you. Consideration is given to determining whether that standard has been breached. The actions of the professional or professionals concerned are measured against those of a reasonable person in the same circumstances.
If it is identified that conduct fell short of what is accepted practice within the profession, then negligence is more than likely to be established. The losses suffered must be linked directly to the negligent conduct. If the damage sustained was reasonably foreseeable and can be attributed to the negligence, then this element will be satisfied.
We will work tirelessly on your behalf during this process, looking at relevant industry standards and examining widely accepted professional opinions. For any negotiation to be fair, odds must not be stacked unfairly against one party. Insurance agencies spend millions every year, hiring expensive law forms to beat claims. We will not let them steamroll a valid claim. With our expertise and commitment, you will get a fair hearing.
Your case and getting you back on track are our priorities. We aim to provide you with the best representation. We also believe that suffering financial hardship due to professional negligence should not stop you from being compensated. It is why the Kingsley Lawson No Win, No Fee commitment exists.
Our policy means you will not pay any legal fees unless your claim is successful. In the event your claim is upheld, costs are based on the amount of work required. Estimates for each case are provided in advance.
Complex legislation is in place to deal with professional negligence claims in Australia. The rules exist so that valid claimants are compensated fairly, and at Kingsley Lawyers Lawyers, our business is making sure that you do.

Our commercial litigation solicitors can identify time limitations local to you so that you do not run out of time to start proceedings. Generally, you will have six years from the date of engaging the professional, or six years from the time the loss occurs. Interpreting when the damage occurred can sometimes be tricky because it is not always immediately apparent. Our professional teams are well versed in the complexities of professional negligence law, and we will do everything in our power to help.
