Together, our attorneys share over 50 years of experience helping clients receive financial compensation when they are injured or harmed due to the negligence of doctors, lawyers, pharmacists and other types of professionals. We have a thorough understanding of the laws that continually help our clients get favorable court judgments or settlements.

What is Professional Negligence?

Professionals owe a duty not to create unreasonable risk of harm to their clients or patients. Their actions must meet a certain standard that is established within their industry. When professionals breach that duty and it causes harm to clients, the professionals are legally liable for any damages that resulted from their actions.
Even if the professional’s negligence or wrongdoing appears clear cut, litigating these types of cases can be quite challenging. Georgia statutes require that a person filing a professional malpractice or negligent lawsuit complete certain legal procedures. It will be difficult to successfully proceed with a legal claim without assistance from a qualified attorney.

Experience Litigating Professional Negligence Cases

Our legal team carefully prepares each professional negligence case. We review the facts, investigate the claims, and interview expert witnesses. We use a combination of our legal research, information retrieved from the investigation, and litigation skills to build a strong case for our clients.

Professional Negligence and Malpractice Claims

Negligence can hurt someone physically and/or financially. Some victims may feel completely helpless. When people hire a professional, they trust that professional to help them or resolve a problem. Being a client or patient who is harmed rather than being helped is very stressful. Some of the professionals who can be subjected to negligence or malpractice claims are:

  • Medical doctors
  • Psychologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Veterinarians
  • Accountants
  • Lawyers
  • Marriage and Family Therapists
  • General contractors or construction workers
  • Engineers
  • Architects
  • Inspectors
  • Real estate agents/brokers
