Professional negligence

Whatever the claim, whatever the profession and whether acting for the claimant or the defendant, St. Joseph Chambers is here to advise and assist you.

Professional negligence claims can be complex matters, involving issues such as the nature and scope of the professional’s duty of care, causation, loss and contributory negligence.

We analyse professional negligence claims carefully, to provide our clients with the best strategic advice. We understand the importance in professional negligence claims of gaining a thorough understanding of the negligence alleged and the way in which it is said to have caused a loss.

We also offer advice on issues of professional indemnity insurance, including disputes as to avoidance or denial of cover and as to the meaning and effect of policy terms.
