Professional Negligence

The Peck Law Group provides legal remedies for individuals and businesses who feel that they were harmed or suffered damages because a professional that they hired was negligent or careless in providing them with a service that was lower than the acceptable standard in the industry.

The defendant in a professional negligence claim will have represented him or herself as being capable of performing above a certain level of performance, only to have acted in breach of that duty. Our law firm handles class actions, commercial claims, and all professional liability matters that transpire as a result of professional negligence.

Professional negligence can arise at any time when a professional has caused harm or damage to another through their professional actions or service.

Some examples of situations that can lead to a professional negligence claim:

  • A client believes that her attorney engaged in attorney negligence, embezzlement, or fraud.
  • A new homeowner decides to sue the architect because the house that he bought has structural design flaws.
  • An investor files a professional negligence claim because his broker purposely persuaded him to invest in the wrong portfolios.
  • A patient becomes ill because of her doctor’s failure to diagnose correctly.

Here are some of the many professionals who may be held liable for professional negligence:

  • Insurance Agents
  • Fire Investigators
  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Attorneys
  • Contractors
  • Accountants
  • Engineers
  • Pharmacists
  • Claim Handlers
  • Psychiatrists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Psychologists
  • Dentists
  • Chiropractors
  • Engineers

When considering whether to file a professional negligence claim, it is important to remember that just because you didn’t achieve certain results from working with a professional does not mean that professional negligence took place. This is why you should speak with a lawyer who understands the nature of professional negligence and who is knowledgeable about the standard of care that should be applied to your specific case.

At The Peck Law Group, we have Senior Attorneys on staff, each of them with at least 10 years experience successfully representing clients in professional negligence cases. We know what it takes to prove professional negligence and we will do everything we can to get you awarded the damages and resultant compensation that you deserve.

Damages may include the following:

  • Lost wages and medical costs if another person’s professional negligence led to you becoming injured and not able to work
  • The financial reimbursement of all services performed
  • Compensation for the value of the work that you hired the professional to perform
  • Property damages
  • Other damages

It is important that you file your claim before the statute of limitations for your particular case runs out. Please consult our offices as soon as possible so that you do not lose your legal rights.

With The Peck Law Group you’ll have Principal Attorney Steven Peck and a team of Senior Attorneys working on your case and protecting your rights. If we are unable to settle your dispute through negotiations, our lawyers are ready to litigate your case in court to fight for the compensation you deserve for the wrong that has been done to you.
