Under Pennsylvania laws, professionals can be sued for causing harm to another individual, such as a client, customer, etc. Commonly we think of professional malpractice claims when we think of professional liability claims. For instance, common professional liability claims are made against medical or dental professionals. Some cases involve lawyers or accountants.

In Pennsylvania, claims against certain professionals like doctors, lawyers or accountants must be filed in accordance with strict procedural rules, such as the “certificate of merit” requirement. Other times, fraud, breach of contract or misrepresentation claims may be made.
