Professional Negligence is an alleged breach of the duty of care between a professional and his/her client. Professional negligence can include claims against professionals such as physicians, attorneys, architects and builders. The duty of care, by common law, means the professional will provide the client with services equal to the standards commonly held by those in that particular area of business. The Barnes Maloney attorneys have experience in the representation of professionals in negligence actions, both in state and federal courts. Each case is fully investigated, litigated and evaluated for the appropriate course for resolution via dispositive motion, mediation, arbitration or jury trial.
In medical malpractice, the duty of care is defined as exercising that degree of care as would be expected of a reasonably competent physician acting under the same or similar circumstances. Barnes Maloney attorneys have a broad range of experience in the representation of physicians, nurses and other medical care providers in medical negligence claims. The Barnes Maloney attorneys have over 60 years of combined experience in the litigation and defense of these claims with an impressive “win rate” at trial.
