Examples of Financial Advisor Negligence

Negligence refers to a breach of an individual’s duties of care to another person. In the financial advisor-client relationship, the advisor owes strict duties of care to the client. Failing to fulfill any of these duties, resulting in harm to the client, is negligence. If you are unsure whether an action qualifies as advisor negligence in Ohio, consult with an attorney from Meyer Wilson.

Negligence is not the same as fraud in terms of financial advising lawsuits. If an advisor commits fraud, he or she knowingly and intentionally deceives an investor. Negligence, on the other hand, is not intentional. It is simply the failure to exercise reasonable care according to the circumstances. A financial advisor could be financially responsible for a client’s losses if he or she is guilty of fraud or negligence.
