Professional Malpractice Case Articles

Bronx Medical Malpractice

Comparative Negligence in Arizona. September 1999 Arizona follows the doctrine of pure comparative negligence. The comparative negligence statutes are found in A.R.S. §12-2501 et seq. These statutes abolished joint and several liability in most instances and enacted a several liability law. See A.R.S. § § 12-2506 – 2509.

Design-Build Joint Venture Agreements. Peden, David D. Jr. February 1997 The printed form Design/Build Agreement shifts some risks and responsibilities, but still is an incomplete document. For example, the AIA’s A-491, although created as the agreement between the Design/Builder and the Contractor, blurs many of the traditional rights and obligations of the parties, and fails to address others.

Florida Professional Malpractice Law: Liability of Design Professionals Introduction. Architectural Malpractice Claims. Architectural Malpractice Claims in Florida. Conclusion. Further Questions. Florida Professional Malpractice Law: Liability of Design Professionals. November 2000. A design professional, such as an architect or engineer, becomes obligated to render professional services only by his or her promise.

Help for Online Service Providers, Professional Malpractice Suits, and Y2K Tax Liabilities. February 2000 Posted with permission from California Lawyer. This file cannot be downloaded from this page. Late last year the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), codified at 17 USC § 512, was enacted. This legislation significantly expands copyright law.

High-Low Agreements: A Viable Settlement Alternative. August 1999 In today’s society litigation is nearly unavoidable. It affects all facets of our lives. If you are a professional, malpractice is always a concern. If you are an employer, you must be concerned with worker’s compensation and complaints of sexual harassment.

Indoor Air Quality; Legal and Liability Issues. Vrountas, Christopher T. June 1999. People spend an estimated ninety percent of their time indoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency
(“EPA”) studies of human exposure to air pollutants, indoor air may have between two to one hundred times the amount of pollutants found in outdoor air.

The Law of Nursing Malpractice. Abramson, Mark A. February 1996 I. Introduction: Nearly twelve years ago, Erline A. Reilly wrote that “most New Hampshire attorneys know nothing about nursing law.(1). As a lawyer and a registered nurse, Attorney Reilly had a unique insight into this issue.

Legal Malpractice. Medical Malpractice. Professional Malpractice Overview. May 2000. Florida Clients cannot be comparatively negligent in relying upon the attorney’s erroneous advice: Clients cannot be comparatively negligent in relying upon the attorney’s erroneous advice.

Liability of Agents and Brokers in New York. April 1999 The question of whether an insurance agent or broker is a “professional”, as that term is legally interpreted, remains unsettled by New York case law.

Managed Health Care and you. O’Conner, Brian P. October 1999 Many individuals receive their major medical insurance through an employee benefit plan. Often, these employee plans are subscribers to a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO).

Superior Court Issues Ruling. February 2000 ON PENNSYLVANIA’S MINORITY TOLLING STATUTE In a medical malpractice action recently reviewed by Pennsylvania’s Superior Court, the appellate tribunal has reversed a trial court’s Order (authored by the Honorable Mark I. Bernstein) which granted the plaintiffs’ motion to discontinue, without prejudice, a claim on behalf of a minor daughter.

Think Before You “Inc”. June 1999. Whether you are just starting out on your own, purchasing a new property for development or an existing business, or simply reviewing your business plan, you should consider whether the form of your business is optimal for your circumstances. The choice of a type of business entity — a corporation, “S” corporation, professional corporation, general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership or limited liability company — affects your liability exposure, taxes and even your personal estate plan.

Turning the Table on the PLC in Spinal Implant Litigation: A California Jury Says ‘No’ to Liability. Hewitt, Stephen L. June 2000 The precedents which have emerged in mass tort litigation over the past several years have conditioned the plaintiffs bar to hungrily scan every new medical device for chinks in the proverbial armor, sometimes regardless of the therapeutic indications, safety or efficacy of the product.

Underwriter Due Diligence In Securities Offerings. May 1999 Underwriters have long played a crucial role in securities offerings. As the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit noted in Chris-Craft Industries, Inc., v. Piper Aircraft Corporation, “[p]rospective investors look to the underwriter — a fact well known to all concerned and especially to the underwriter — to pass on the soundness of the security and the correctness of the registration statement and the prospectus.”1

Warning to Expert Witnesses!. October 2000 In a surprising change of the common law tradition of witness immunity, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has recently held that the doctrine of witness immunity does not protect expert witnesses who are negligent in forming their opinions.

What is Malpractice?. October 1999 Any professional misconduct, unreasonable lack of skill or fidelity in professional duties. Black’s Law Dictionary When you use the services of a professional – a doctor, a lawyer, an accountant, an architect – you assume that the services you receive will be provided in accordance with professional standards.

Who Is A Professional In Florida. Duff, Susan Droppleman January 1996 In considering the class of persons to whom a two year statute of limitations for professional malpractice applies, the
Supreme Court of Florida defined a profession as “a vocation requiring, as a minimum standard, a college degree in a specific field.”

Y2K Liability. June 1999. One of the emerging trends in the law is the concern over Year 2000 (Y2K) liability. Speculation is widespread that our society will be dramatically impacted when the calendar turns over to the Year 2000.

The Year 2000 Computer Problem-Beyond Remediation: Are You Prepared?. January 1999 Defining the Year 2000 Computer Problem At the “dawn” of the computer age computer memory was ten thousand times more expensive than it is today. To save computer memory, programmers used two, rather than four, digits to represent years.

The Year 2000 Issue. Dean, James B. September 1999 You are probably tired of hearing about the “year 2000 computer problem” but an article by John Newberry in the June 1997 American Bar Association Journal focused some legal points which have not been commonly noted if the year
2000 problem appears. They seem worth sharing.
