Under common law principles, every individual owes another a duty of care. What the particular duty entails varies depending on the relationship between the individuals. A doctor has a duty to treat you as a patient with medical competency and a lawyer has a duty to always act in your best interests.
There are times that unfortunately where an individual is careless in their duty and thereby causes loss or damage such as medical malpractice or personal injury. We would refer to this broadly as negligence and when negligence occurs, the wronged party is entitled to damages or compensation. Past clients have come to us with negligence enquiries relating to various services or professionals they have engaged. Our role is to advise and assist you in seeking the appropriate compensation.
