Professionals bring expertise, liability to the table

In the real property world, several different individuals may have roles to play in order for success to be achieved. In a construction project, for example, there can be engineers and architects who help design a project, as well contractors and subcontractors who bring the project into existence, and real estate professionals who deal with the property before and after construction is complete.

As discussed last week in this blog, trouble can arise at any stage of a project. When construction defects arise, allegations can fly against multiple Miami residents involved in the project, including allegations of malpractice against the professionals involved.

Malpractice typically involves claims of negligence, which looks at whether a person violated the duty of care he or she has to follow. Each professional may have a duty of care, including attorneys, architects, accountants, engineers and others. While the negligence test varies somewhat depending on the particular professional involved, the general question is whether the professional committed malpractice by violating the duty of care a reasonable professional in those circumstances would follow.

Our firm handles many different kinds of malpractice claims on behalf of our clients. For example, we have experience in claims involving legal malpractice, accounting malpractice, surveyor malpractice, architect malpractice and engineer malpractice. This wide variety of experience allows us to help clients in several different professions, and it gives us insight into how the different stages of projects tie together as a whole.

We also represent both plaintiffs and defendants in malpractice claims, which gives us a unique perspective that we can use to benefit our clients in each case. For more information on our firm's services, please visit our professional malpractice webpage.
