Professional Negligence Cases

We entrust important matters to professionals licensed to provide certain services. We count on doctors, lawyers, insurance brokers, accountants, architects, engineers, surveyors, dentists, financial advisers, and other licensed professionals to give us the services and information we need. When a professional fails to meet his or her duty of care to the client, considerable damages can result. Our Miami professional negligence attorneys have seen lawsuit filings rise in the past few years due to our society's increasing reliance on professional opinions.

Professional negligence can be devastating. It often results in serious financial damage, but could cause physical injuries as well in the case of medical professionals. The victims of professional negligence may lose substantial sums of money due to negligent financial advisement, accounting errors, engineering issues and more. Insurance brokers may leave innocent clients without the insurance coverage they need. Negligent attorneys could leave accident victims struggling to obtain the compensation they deserve or without the ability to bring their cause of action. Anyone who has suffered damages as a result of suspected negligent conduct on the part of any professional, they may have the right to recover financial damages.

At Greenberg Stone & Urbano, our Miami professional negligence lawyers assist clients who have suffered damages due to all kinds of negligence. We understand that our clients entrust their important matters to professionals. They deserve justice when the professional acts in a negligent manner. Two of the most common types of malpractice are discussed below along with a description of one of our successful cases.

Legal Malpractice

There are several types of conduct that can give rise to a claim of legal malpractice. It is not always easy to determine whether certain behavior constitutes legal malpractice. Your malpractice attorney will evaluate your case and be able to ascertain whether your attorney's conduct gave rise to malpractice. One possible instance of malpractice includes a lawyer's failure to file a lawsuit in time, resulting in the client's loss of their cause of action. Your rights will, however, depend upon the individual circumstances surrounding your case.

Medical Malpractice

Medical errors can be physically and financially devastating. Not all medical mistakes constitute medical malpractice; rather, the medical professional must fail to meet standards of care in the industry. This could include improperly diagnosing a patient, medication errors, failure to obtain informed consent and surgical errors. A medical malpractice attorney will assess your potential claim to determine your legal rights.

Notable Case

We represented a young man who was injured by a drunk driver. He suffered catastrophic injuries, including head, brain, face and arm injuries. His injuries exceeded the policy limits of the at-fault driver, and it was then uncovered that he did not have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, despite requesting this coverage. We brought a professional negligence claim against the insurance company and obtained a substantial settlement due to the agent's negligent failure to procure the requested coverage.
