Professional negligence occurs when a professional fails to carry out his or her duties to the required standard of care; this may result in a claim brought by a client, or, in certain circumstances the professional may be found to owe specific duties to third parties. A claim in professional negligence may be based upon any of the following:
- a breach of a contract;
- a breach of a duty of care owed in the tort of negligence;
- a breach of a fiduciary duty; or
- a breach of a statutory duty.
