In today’s litigious society malpractice lawsuits are becoming increasingly common and more complex.
It does not matter how good a professional you are, accountant, lawyer, nurse, doctor, engineer, pharmacist or board director, sometimes mistakes happen, there is a breakdown in communication, or maybe you have found yourself working for a “difficult” client. Whatever the scenario you need to ensure that you act quickly to protect your interests.
