If you have suffered financial loss as a result of negligent advice or professional services from someone like a lawyer, architect, accountant, financial advisor, engineer or surveyor, in Queensland or elsewhere, you may be entitled to compensation. We can advise you in detail about your right to claim and your prospects of success.
Most professions require their members to hold professional indemnity insurance as a condition of registration. Your claim will be handled by the insurer, not the defendant personally, and it is the insurer who will pay any damages.
A complaint may also be made to the relevant professional body.
Different rules can apply in other states and overseas – we can advise you about that.
