Business consultants are considered to be experts in their fields. When you retain the services of a consultant, you place your trust and the future prospects of your business in their hands.
Whether you require help to oversee the rolling out of a new project, advice on the implementation of more profitable or cost effective strategies, or solutions to specific issues within your business, the consultant owes you a duty of care to ensure that the advice they give you meets the standard of care to be expected of a reasonably competent consultant. Unless the advice the consultant gives you falls below that standard of care, the consultant will not be negligent.
Examples of Consultant Negligence
Individuals and businesses can suffer huge financial loss if they are poorly advised to invest valuable funds in areas and projects that are unlikely to provide the required outcome.
If a consultant has given you bad advice on a business project or strategy, which has led to you suffering a financial loss, you may be able to bring a professional negligence claim against that consultant.
Limitation in Consultant Negligence Claims
There are time limits to bring a professional negligence claim. You have 6 years from the act of negligence or 3 years from the date of knowledge
