Professional Liability Law Firm In Chicago, Illinois
What Is Professional Liability?
Professional liability is that ascribed to a “professional” because of conduct falling below the recognized standard of care that was the “proximate” or direct cause for so someone’s loss. Examples of such professionals include doctors, nurses, lawyers, engineers, accountants, insurance and real estate agents and others.
Public officials are also subject to legal liability with an exposure or loss potential similar to that of a professional. The trigger of liability is determined to be a “wrongful act” – usually an error, omission, misstatement, neglect, or breach of duty in his or her capacity as a public official or employee of any public or administrative entity
