When you hire a professional in Maine whether it’s a lawyer, accountant, real estate agent, architect, building contractor, or a professional of any type you expect them to deliver services that meet, if not exceed, the standards in their field. In other words, you expect them to do the job right.
When a professional fails to meet industry standards, they can be held responsible for damages under Maine law.
Professionals often go to great lengths to avoid responsibility for their mistakes or wrongdoing. Their insurance companies and defense lawyers will use every possible tactic to delay the process, confuse the issues, and place the blame elsewhere.
