Des Moines, Iowa professional liability attorneys

The Patterson Law Firm is experienced in all aspects of professional liability and professional negligence in Iowa.  Professionals such as a doctor, dentist, or a lawyer must adhere to the standards of professional conduct.  In the course of a professional business it is not unexpected for a professional to become the object of a malpractice suit for damages for failure to adhere to professional standards.  To protect you against unfair claims, injury to reputation, and potentially large monetary damages it is best to seek the advice of an attorney as soon as possible for all professional liability cases.  Some examples of professionals who can be the object of a malpractice claim are:

  • Real estate brokers
  • Stock brokers
  • Accountants
  • Engineers
  • Doctors
  • Health care workers

Legal malpractice suits typically revolve around allegations of negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, or breach of contract.  Malpractice suits must be brought within a set statutory time period or they can be dismissed.  Since these suits often revolve around expert testimony, our attorneys have a cadre of experts at our disposal.  The attorneys at the Patterson Law Firm know how to investigate professional liability allegations and will bring their years of experience to bear on your behalf.
