A. Yes, reasonable fees for professional advice can be claimed in compensation settlement.
Q. My business is being disrupted and I'm losing money, will I get compensation?
A. Loss of profits alone is unlikely to be a compensatable claim.
Q. I don't understand the documents I've been sent, who can I talk to?
