Darren Barker Discusses How Beacon v. Skidmore Will Affect Design Professionals

Darren Barker explains the importance of Beacon v. Skidmore, which exposes design professionals to potential liability to third parties in negligence cases. This case allows home owners to hold design professionals (architects, engineers, surveyors, etc.) accountable for negligence in instances where the work was performed under an agreement with a general contractor. Currently, the case is under appeal with the California Supreme Court with a decision pending in 2014. Read Darren Barker's article "Design Professionals Duty of Care" for more on this subject.
