Professional Negligence/Malpractice

Professionals are required to meet certain standards of their profession. When they fail to meet those standards, and their clients are harmed, the clients can seek to recover damages for their losses. Whether the professional who holds himself or herself out to be an expert is an attorney, a physician, an accountant or other type of professional, each of these professionals may be held accountable.

The Javerbaum Wurgaft team offers client services to seek recovery for losses due to professional negligence or malpractice.
