Claims against engineers involve professional negligence and contractual liability. In the case of contracts, it is understood that they imply that the engineering services are provided according to the engineer’s professional activity’s duties, aiming at the contract’s protection and integrity. If the contract obligations are not fulfilled, or the engineer is committing any negligence, know that you can appeal.
Even if there is no contract, you can sue the engineer for professional negligence if the conditions below are right:
- The performance of the engineer violated the duty of care.
- The performance of the engineer caused damage to you.
Generally speaking, the standard of care with which the engineer has acted with you will determine whether he has done so with professional negligence or not.
