Professional Liability & Malpractice

Professional Liability & MalpracticeAt Righi Fitch Law Group, our firm prides itself on being among the top choices for insurers, individuals, and entities seeking to defend against professional liability and malpractice claims in Arizona and New Mexico.

Our team has successfully represented professionals in all manner of proceedings, including arbitrations, trials and appeals, defending all professional liability matters from inception through trial and appeal. We understand the needs of professionals to defend against claims being presented and to preserve the standing and reputation of the client. There are particular standards of care applicable to these professionals and our attorneys often have a significant competitive advantage over opposing counsel, which produces excellent results. Professional liability can involve many different types of insurance policies, each with its own terms, conditions and deadlines for timely compliance. We are able to quickly determine which policy applies and which issues need to be addressed immediately. Our familiarity with insurance defense and professional liability gives us insight into the unique provisions these policies often contain. For example, these policies may contain consent provisions that can withhold the policyholder's right to a trial. The Righi Fitch Law Group team is sensitive to the unique challenges the provisions create for both the clients and their insurers. We work with both to ensure the best representation in a cost-efficient way.

For insurers, Righi Fitch Law Group provides clients with an early analysis of the merits of a claim to make informed decisions about the potential value of any claim.
