Fraud is not necessary in order to recover against a brokerage firm for investment losses. Firms and brokers can be held liable for their negligent actions or inactions. Many investors fail to file a claim against their broker or financial adviser because they prefer not to accuse them of fraud or in any way adversely reflect on their character. However, few would feel the same way if someone caused harm to them or their family because of their negligent actions or inactions.
Mistakes happen and the negligence of a broker or brokerage firm can result in losses in investment accounts. Not all investment losses are caused by the negligence or other wrongdoings by the broker or the firm, but if you have suffered significant losses it is prudent to contact an attorney for advice.
