How Is Professional Malpractice Harmful?
Many people think of professional malpractice as something that is simply a broken contract. Please know that people can sustain significant damages and injuries as a result of professional malpractice.
You have probably heard of medical malpractice before and in many ways, professional malpractice is the same thing. Every industry has a professional standard of conduct that they must follow. These standards are established within each industry.
Who can commit professional malpractice?
Think about the different groups you can enter into an agreement with:
- Insurance companies
- Construction firms
If any of those groups fail to follow through on their contractual obligations, they should be held accountable for any damages, losses, or injuries due to the breach of contract.
- In the worst cases of professional malpractice, people can get injured or killed. This is especially true if an engineer, construction company, or architect makes errors that lead to major accidents.
What About Legal Malpractice?
Legal professionals can also face malpractice lawsuits. Each state sets the rules of professional conduct that attorneys must follow. If the actions an attorney is careless or negligent, or they work in ways that are intended to cause harm to their clients, they could be held liable for malpractice.
How could an attorney be held liable? You have certainly heard of the attorney-client relationship. This relationship can be breached in the following ways:
- A lawyer abuses their client’s finances or settlement
- An attorney makes agreements without their client’s consent
- The attorney neglects to relay important information to their client
- The attorney has a conflict of interest in the case
- An attorney makes errors with a client’s paperwork or misses court deadlines
