Wheaton Professional Liability Attorneys

Experienced Malpractice Attorneys

At Rolewick & Gutzke, P.C., our experienced attorneys provide responsible guidance and trusted representation for those have been victimized by medical, legal, financial, religious, or other professionals. We realize that claims involving professional liability are often intense and deeply personal, since the person against whom a victim has filed a claim relies on his or her reputation for his or her livelihood. We recognize this in our skilled representation of victims.

What Is Professional Liability?

Professional liability is a term that is often used in conjunction with the word "malpractice." Most sources define professional liability as any legal obligation that may arise out of the performance of a professional's job or the practice of his or her craft. As such, professional liability typically applies to individuals and entities whose occupation or role requires advanced education, certification, or licensing, including:

  • Doctors, nurses, and medical professionals
  • Hospitals, long-term care facilities, and nursing homes
  • Attorneys and judges
  • Information technology experts
  • Brokers and financial planners
  • Architects and engineers
  • Priests, ministers, and other members of the clergy

The most common types of professional liability cases typically involve allegations of medical malpractice or legal malpractice. In addition to those, claims may arise against any party who derives his or her livelihood from his or her expertise in a given area.

Protecting Clients' Interests

There are several important elements in any professional liability claim. At Rolewick & Gutzke, P.C., our experienced professional liability attorneys are equipped to help clients show that:

  • The professional in question owed the victim a duty of care;
  • The professional breached that duty by providing services that failed to meet the prevailing standard in that particular industry; and
  • The breach directly caused the victim injury, including financial harm.

In most cases, proving a relationship to the professional in question is straightforward, especially if the victim hired the professional or visited his or her office as a patient in medical malpractice situations. Showing that the victim suffered injuries of some kind is also relatively simple. At Rolewick & Gutzke, P.C., we realize that most cases hinge on the second point above. It can be very difficult to establish a prevailing standard for a particular industry, and doing so often requires expert testimony from others in the same field. With our vast network of contacts in a variety of industries, we are equipped to help clients prove each necessary element of their case.

Aggressive Attorneys Helping Malpractice Victims

Most professionals carry professional liability insurance coverage to help insulate themselves from potential claims and lawsuits. Our experienced attorneys know how to respond to low settlement offers from insurance carriers looking to escape culpability on behalf of their clients. We will continue to work until our clients get the full compensation they deserve for the harm they have suffered.
