Business owners, legal professionals, and medical professionals can all commit malpractice. When they do, they need to be held accountable. Let us help you secure the compensation you deserve.
What Kinds Of Malpractice Are There?
We know that most people have heard of medical malpractice. That is certainly one kind of malpractice, but it is not the only one. Any time a company or professional signs a contract and does not uphold their end, they could be on the line for damages. Today, we want to briefly review some cases of professional malpractice.
Various Types Of Business Malpractice
Think about the different types of businesses you enter into agreements with:
- Insurance companies
- Construction firms
Every industry has a professional standard of conduct to follow. If they fail to follow through on their contractual obligations, they can be held accountable for a person’s damages or losses due to their breach of contract. In many cases, professional malpractice can lead to injuries or fatalities. This is especially true in the case of construction firms, architects, and engineers whose expertise we rely on for safety.
What About Legal Malpractice?
Each state has certain rules of professional conduct that attorneys must follow. If the actions of legal professionals are negligent or they work in a way that is intended to cause harm, they could be held liable for legal malpractice.
Anyone who watches TV has heard of the attorney-client relationship. This is an agreement that the lawyer and their client enter into once they decide on services to be rendered. However, this relationship goes deeper than most people realize and can be breached if the following issues arise:
- An attorney abuses a client’s finances or settlement
- Agreements are made by an attorney without their client’s consent
- The attorney does not let the client know important information about their case
- Errors are made in legal documents or the attorney misses deadlines
- The attorney has a conflict of interest in the case, perhaps with another party involved
