Making a structural engineer claim

The advice and expertise of engineers is often critical to the success of a project. Whether their work is structural, mechanical or electrical, many people rely on engineers to provide services that meet specific standards. 

Unfortunately, some engineers fall short of these high standards, leaving their clients seriously out of pocket and facing an enormous amount of work to put any errors right.

If you hired an engineer whose actions or inaction caused you a financial loss, you could be able to make a professional negligence claim to recover those costs and seek compensation. Perhaps your engineer provided a design which was incorrect or offered erroneous advice. Maybe the engineer made inaccurate measurements or failed to follow the industry standards laid out for them. Whatever their failings, we can help assess whether you have a claim, as well as managing it through to a successful conclusion.

If you can prove the engineer had a duty of care to you, and their failure to provide appropriate services resulted in a financial loss, we can help you pursue a negligence claim. Our team have many years of experience within the area of professional negligence, and we can fight your corner to secure the compensation you deserve.

Your questions... answered

What is the role of a structural engineer?

Structural engineers operate in construction. They’re heavily involved with the design and supervision of all construction work on a site, and are expected to liaise closely with the architect and the client to deliver a project on time.

Naturally, engineers face a lot of pressure in their day-to-day jobs. A small mistake can result in an entire project falling apart, and their work is closely linked with health and safety procedures. One wrong move, erroneous calculation or piece of inappropriate advice could not only see a project fail, it could also see someone injured.

What are the possible consequences of structural engineer negligence?

One of the main consequences of engineer negligence is financial loss to the client. If a project is significantly delayed by an engineer’s mistakes, the client could lose valuable rental payments.

Of course, not all consequences of an engineer’s negligence are related to finance. A miscalculation on a construction project could render a building totally unsafe for use – and anyone living or working there could be at real risk of injury. The failure to inspect or supervise work can also be an enormous breach of health and safety regulations and  could put people in severe danger.
