Defining Financial Advisor Negligence

A financial advisor has been negligent if he or she has failed to meet the expected standards of care in securities law while handling a client’s account, resulting in harm to the client. Receiving compensation for a financial advisor’s negligence, however, requires proving certain elements during insurance settlement negotiations and/or a civil trial in Pennsylvania.

  1. Duty to exercise reasonable care. A financial advisor will owe this duty only if he or she has a professional relationship with the client. The specific duties will depend on whether the advisor is a fiduciary.
  2. Breach of duty. A financial advisor is negligent if he or she has breached any duty of care owed to the client while recommending investments or managing an account. The breach could be accidental or on purpose.
  3. Damages suffered and causation. An advisor could be civilly liable for negligence if he or she caused the client economic injury, such as money lost on an unsuitable investment recommendation.

You or your attorney will need to prove these elements to have a successful negligence claim against a financial advisor in Pennsylvania. Proof of negligence could come in the form of investment documents, correspondence from the advisor or expert witness testimony. Meyer Wilson has strong relationships with expert witnesses in investment law who may be able to help you win your claim.
