Professional negligence

Augustus Cullen Law Solicitors have a specialist team of experienced lawyers working in this niche area of professional negligence and have been involved in numerous successful claims against financial institutions and various professionals involving multi-million Euro awards.

Professional negligence introduction

In times of growth and economic prosperity advice given may often be over-optimistic. Possible errors go largely unnoticed when things are going well and the advice is rarely challenged. However in light of the current economic climate professional advice is being scrutinised and errors are being highlighted. Professionals are now in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons and errors made, whether due to negligence or fraud, are becoming more and more common.

There is a vast spectrum of professions which come within the ambit of “professionals”. We are well used to hearing about medical negligence claims but until recently claims against other professionals have gone largely unnoticed. Claims against the likes of lawyers, accountants, architects, brokers, bankers are becoming more common as mistakes made during the Celtic Tiger are now surfacing.

Areas of Expertise

  • Financial Mis-selling by financial advisors/financial institutions
  • Claims against professionals including solicitors, barristers, accountants, surveyors, architects, brokers, accountants, actuaries
  • Claims against pension advisors/trustees of pension funds

What we can do for you

We do not promise a “quick fix”, or “flashy gimmicks”, or promise more than we can deliver but we do promise you, as our logo states “thoughtful clear advice”. We recognise that a medical accident has significant emotional and financial consequences for you and your family, and we will do everything we can to make the process run as smoothly as possible for you. 

We strongly believe that every victim of medical negligence is entitled to just as good, if not better, legal representation than that provided to the State, hospital boards and medical consultants.

Step 1

We believe proper access to justice is a fundamental right and not a privilege.

Step 2

We hope in all cases to obtain an explanation for what happened to you.

Step 3

We strive to hold the doctor or hospital accountable for their actions.

Step 4

Our aim is to secure proper compensation wherever appropriate.
