Professional Negligence and Malpractice
Clients expect professionals to deliver sound, effective services that fall within the standards of that profession. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen.
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.
Proving professional malpractice can be difficult, as the laws regarding professional malpractice are complicated and often require expert testimony from another professional licensed in the same specialty. To successfully resolve these types of cases, it takes an experienced professional malpractice attorney.
Javerbaum Wurgaft attorneys have extensive experience in collecting recoveries for losses due to professional negligence or malpractice. In certain situations, the attorney may also be liable to an intended beneficiary or a third party. The recovery may include the money the client would have obtained but for the professional’s breach of duty, fees paid to the professional, or the amount of judgment imposed against the client due to the professional’s breach of the duty of care.
