Professional Malpractice

In today's business environment, individuals who provide professional services are increasingly exposed to lawsuits based upon claims of negligence in delivery of those services.  The attorneys of DeCaro Doran have successfully defended a wide variety of professional liability claims and cases involving:
  • Accountants;
  • Architects;
  • Contractors;
  • Engineers;
  • Lawyers;
  • Officers and Directors; and
  • Health care providers (including physicians, nurses, and health care facilities)
The firm's attorneys recognize that the litigation of professional liability claims requires aggressiveness and sensitivity, in that individuals alleging professional negligence often feel they have suffered damages caused by professionals in whom they have placed their trust.  Just as important, professionals who have rendered valuable services often find themselves in a position of defending financial loss, as well as their professional reputation. We strive to balance those competing approaches by aggressively defending these cases where necessary and actively encouraging early resolution of disputes to the satisfaction of everyone involved.

Additionally, we have served as counsel for numerous insurance companies that provide professional liability coverage. Our attorneys have more than thirty years of experience in all areas of litigation, negotiation, arbitration and mediation.
