Negligence Injury Lawyers in New York
Holding Professionals Accountable for Negligence
As required by law, contractors, accountants, medical specialists, and other professionals must behave ethically when providing professional services. These laws protect victims of ethical violations and hold wrongdoers liable for the damage they cause.
At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, our New York professional negligence attorneys will assist individuals and businesses who believe they have suffered damages or harm due to a hired professional who provided them with unacceptable negligent service. Our team is experienced in obtaining expert testimony in order to prove professional negligence occurred and, over the course of our 40+ years in practice, we have successfully secured more than $2 billion for our clients. We are based in New York City and serve clients throughout the state, as well as nationwide.
Who Can Commit Professional Negligence?
Injuries from professional negligence can be either physical or financial in nature. While medical malpractice can result in severe damage to patients, a negligent accountant can seriously cripple a client's financial well-being. All professionals need to be held accountable for their actions so they maintain proper duty of care at all times.
Any of the following may commit professional negligence, leading to harm and damages:
- Physical therapists
- Insurance agents
- Fire investigators
- Claim handlers
Proving Complex Professional Negligence Cases
Proving professional negligence can be extremely difficult. Receiving poor service does not necessarily mean there was professional negligence. To prevail, we still need to demonstrate that there was a breach of professional duty. This often involves obtaining expert witness testimony which can explain how an accident could have been avoided with proper care.
