However, from time to time the work of an engineer can fall a long way short of what is expected and can in fact leave you at a severe financial disadvantage. In these circumstances you might need advice about professional negligence claims against engineers from a specialist solicitor.
The highly specialized technical work that is performed by many engineers will often have little room for errors. When constructing a building or installing a piece of machinery, any mistakes in the alignment of a particular element or in the methods used could result in a catastrophic failure of the building or the machine in question. Engineers are therefore required to perform their roles to the best of their abilities. When this doesn’t happen and an engineer is negligent in their duties, causing you to suffer a direct financial loss, or a loss through the cost of rectifying the problem, then you should seek out legal advice from a solicitor with experience dealing with claims against engineers.
For expert legal advice regarding claims against engineers, talk to Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors. Our professional negligence team have been helping people who have been let down by a professional person they have employed to take legal action to recover the financial losses they have suffered. Some of the professional negligence cases we have dealt with in the past have involved people who have suffered losses as a result of the professional negligence of an engineer. We have helped these people to successfully make claims against engineers for professional negligence compensation.
Engineering negligence claims
As our solicitors know, successful engineering negligence claims rely on establishing that the actions or inaction of a person you have employed as a professional engineer have lead to you suffering a financial loss. As part of an engineering negligence claim your solicitor will be able to advise you as to whether the engineer in question has been professionally negligent or whether they have merely provided you with an inadequate service. This is an important distinction as in order for engineering negligence claims to be successful it is up to you and your professional negligence solicitor to establish that you have actually suffered a financial loss.
Delays to an engineering project are commonly something that might motivate someone who has employed an engineer to make an engineering negligence claim. Unfortunately, in a lot of cases, a small delay to an engineering project, especially where the reason for the delay is out of the control of your engineer is not usually sufficient grounds to make an engineering negligence claim. A very serious delay to an engineering project, caused by your engineer, could mean that you end up suffering a financial loss. If this is the case then an engineering negligence claim against your engineering is certainly one of the legal options available to you.
