- Construction professionals
- Physicians, dentists, and other health care providers
- Certified public accountants (CPA)
HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS
Representation of physicians, dentists, and other health care providers is highly specialized. Cases alleging liability against health care providers are governed by specific provisions of Florida law. Cases in this area also often involve complex relationships between many parties because of the countless, dedicated providers who render care.
These cases are typically very complex, have multiple defendants, and involve millions of dollars in possible damages. Our attorneys have expertise in defending health care providers facing professional liability claims. We have experience successfully resolving such professional liability cases involving individual claims against the professional or in insurance defense matters both at trial and through alternative dispute resolution.
Our attorneys have successfully defended many other professionals, such as lawyers, insurance agents, architects, engineers, and CPAs, against malpractice claims. Different professional liability cases implicate specific areas of the law. For example, attorneys must observe rules set forth by the Florida Bar. All professionals are also held to standards and requirements promulgated by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
Because of our experience defending professionals, we understand the different areas of law implicated in various professional liability cases. Given our extensive experience in litigation, trial, and appeals, we have the knowledge and skill to zealously defend your case from such allegations. Our attorneys will take the time to thoroughly analyze your case, so that you can be sure your interests will be protected in court.
