What is Professional Negligence?

We put a lot of our trust and confidence into accredited service providers to navigate various complexities on our behalf - and it can have devastating consequences when they make bad choices, provide bad advice or act unprofessionally in any other way. It is reasonable to expect to receive professional, sound advice when enlisting the service of professionals.

When a service provided by certain professionals (eg accountants, lawyers, brokers, tax advisors) is negligent and it can be proved that they have breached the duty of care they owe to you, you may be able to bring a claim in negligence against them.

Here at Gordon Legal, we have experts in this area of the law that are passionate about helping you achieve compensation and a sense of justice.

Time Restrictions

It’s important to note that there are time limitations that apply when considering a claim for compensation for professional negligence – get in touch with us today on 1300 57 25 18 to make sure your claim is within time. If you miss the time limit that applies to your claim, you may not be able to bring your claim before the Courts.

We provide friendly and plain-speaking legal advice to help you understand the legal process, every step of the way.

We understand that when you have been let down or misled by a professional, there are emotional and mental consequences as well as financial ones. We also understand that undertaking a claim for compensation after going through the ordeal of receiving bad professional advice can feel daunting. We always strive to provide our expertise and services with compassion and care, and a commitment to helping real people.


Our experienced, friendly lawyers can assist you with:

  • Incorrect financial advice (eg: tax-related advice, poorly conducted audits, poor financial analysis)
  • Negligent legal advice from lawyers (not acting in your best interest or against your instructions, badly drawn contracts, failure to make critical decisions
  • Unsatisfactory service from a financial advisor or accountant who causes you to lose money or other financial hardship
