Professional Liability Law Firm In Chicago, Illinois

When you trust important matters to a professional, you expect those matters to be handled with care. Nothing is more disappointing than giving up significant sums of money only to have your matter mishandled. While no human being is perfect, significant blunders that affect the rights of clients are unacceptable, particularly when committed by highly trained individuals in complex fields.Professionals across virtually every industry are subject to basic standards of conduct. Many are regulated by a state supervisory or disciplinary board. They must uphold the tenets of their profession and adhere to ethical standards. When they fail to do so, and depart from accepted “standards of care,” the repercussions often impact you, the client. Your finances, long-term goals, and, overall trust in the profession may all suffer as a result.

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
