Legal, Accounting, Financial and Other Professional Errors and Malpractice

Chicago Professional Malpractice Lawyer

Recovering Damages for Professional Mistakes, Malpractice and Professional Negligence

We all rely on professionals to handle matters too complex to handle ourselves. We trust that they will use their experience and diligence to handle specialized areas of knowledge, including medicine, psychology, dentistry, accounting and the law. Unfortunately, professionals sometimes betray our trust.

If you or your interests have been harmed due to a professional’s error or malpractice, the Law Offices of John B. Schwartz & Associates can help. Based in Chicago, we have handled dozens of cases of legal, financial, and medical malpractice and mistakes. Contact us if you have questions regarding significant errors committed by a:

  • Doctor, nurse or other health care professional
  • Lawyer
  • Accountant/CPA
  • Corporate officer

We can help when doctors make diagnostic and surgical errors, when attorneys and CPAs fail to file important documents in a timely fashion, and when corporate officers and leaders make costly and damaging mistakes.

Legal malpractice is often confusing, and a recent case helps illustrate it. We represent a client whose lawyer wrongly believed he was not eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits. By the time the attorney realized his error it was too late to file a claim. We are suing the lawyer on behalf of our client for a high six-figure sum, based on missing the statute of limitations deadline. Attorneys and lawyers who have neglected their client’s cases have been the subject of many of our cases and successful settlements.

If your CPA or tax accountant failed to file your tax return on time, if you have questions regarding your divorce attorney’s diligence in identifying your spouse’s assets, or you have any other questions regarding professional malpractice, contact our firm for a free initial consultation and experienced legal representation.

We also defend professionals who are unreasonably sued on claims of professional malpractice or professional negligence, including the representation of health care workers and other professionals before the Illinois Department of Professional Responsibility.
