We hire professionals when we need people with an expertise in a particular field. When we hire them we expect that not only will they provide professional services in a satisfactory manner, but also that they will do so in a way that serves our best interests. Those professionals understand that we are relying on their expertise and when we hire them they owe us a professional duty of care based on industry standards. When a professional’s negligent conduct or incorrect advice results in injuries and damages, you have a case for professional malpractice. Our professional malpractice attorneys respect and appreciate the trust that our clients place in our professional services and we will work to see that you are compensated for your injuries and damages as a result of another professional’s negligence.
Recognizing professional negligence
Some types of malpractice are easier to spot than others. For example, when a professional builder builds your home according to your architect’s plans and your roof collapses due to insufficient support, you probably have a professional negligence claim against your architect and/or builder. Or when you go in for knee replacement on your right leg and you wake up with a new knee on your left leg, you know you have a case of medical malpractice.
Unfortunately, professional malpractice is not always that easy to spot. Sometimes you may suspect that your professional’s conduct was negligent, but you do not have enough information to support your suspicion. You may be afraid to question the professional in case you are wrong or you believe he or she may not tell you the truth anyway.
