BANK PROFESSIONAL NEGLIGENCE - SOLICITORS COMPENSATION - AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

LAWYER HELPLINE: 1800 455 886

We only deal with losses incurred as a result of negligent financial advice given by banks, financial institutions, advisors and wealth management companies.

Australian banks and financial institutions carry out a very wide range of work in the professional sphere both in house and by instructing outside professional people to work both on behalf of the bank and on behalf of the banks client. The rules that govern financial institution and bank professional negligence (both domestic & commercial) are no different to the rules that apply to all professional people in that the bank or those that they appoint to carry out work on their behalf and on behalf of a client must be of a reasonable standard.

Duty of Care

To succeed in a claim for bank professional negligence it is necessary to show that a duty of care exists between the bank and the customer and the normal relationship of a customer to the bank is usually sufficient to establish that relationship. Thereafter it is necessary to show that the bank, or those advisors appointed by the bank to look after the customers interests, failed to use a reasonable degree of skill and care which directly resulted in financial loss or the prospect of future financial loss.

Third Parties

Claims for bank professional negligence often centres on third parties and frequently involves solicitors and financial advisors. Any negligent action that occurs due to the negligence of another professional appointed on the recommendation of the bank may be attributed to the bank and any negligent work carried out directly on the instruction of the bank becomes the responsibility of the bank.

Common Negligent Actions

There are numerous other areas where bank professional negligence may result in payment of compensation including :-

  • overcharging for financial & other services
  • reneging on an offer
  • actual loss of physical assets
  • inadequate financial advice
  • failure to supply documents
  • failure to make due payments
  • breach of confidentiality
