Professional Negligence

Insurance Broker Negligence

If you or your business has received bad service from an insurance broker, our professional negligence lawyers could help you recover the money you lost as a result.

As one of the UK’s largest professional negligence departments, we’ve dealt with many claims against insurance brokers where they’ve failed to:

  • Report a circumstance which led to your insurance being invalid
  • Get adequate insurance for your business needs
  • Renew insurance in the required timeframe

Once you’ve contacted us and we’ve discussed how to progress your case, we’ll be able to talk you through the funding options available.

We offer a range of funding options to fit your situation, such as fixed fee, private retainers and conditional fee agreements (CFAs).

Our close relationship with After the Event (ATE) insurance providers means that we’re able to source ATE quickly and cost effectively. We can also give you a low value fixed fee review of your insurance broker negligence claim, providing you with guidance on how to move your case forward.

We have the experience and expertise to make a successful insurance broker negligence claim on your behalf. Our lawyers understand the impact that bad insurance advice can have on your business and will fight to make sure you receive compensation for your financial losses.
