When you sign a contract with someone, you expect that they will follow through on their end of the bargain. When a company or person fails to uphold their contractual obligations, people can sustain damages and injuries.
At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we are here to help when you need a professional malpractice attorney. Our knowledgeable and experienced team understands that these cases can become complex, but that will not deter us as we seek to secure the compensation you deserve.
What Are We Talking About Here?
You have heard the term malpractice, but likely only when used to describe mistakes made by medical professionals. Yes, that is one form of malpractice, but there are many others. Today, we want to talk about other forms of professional malpractice. What many people do not realize is that professionals can cause serious damages and injuries when they breach the agreements of their contracts.
Consider the following groups of people that you may enter into agreements with on a regular basis:
- Insurance companies
- Construction firms
In each of these cases, you will both sign a contract agreeing on services to be performed. For each industry, and other professional industries, there is a standard of conduct that they must follow. If any of these groups of people fail to follow through on their contractual obligations to their clients, they could be held responsible for damages and injuries caused by their breach of contract.
But how could people get injured here?
Consider an engineering or construction firm that cuts corners to save some money on a project. If this cost-cutting ends up compromising the integrity of a building, roadway, or other projects, they could be held liable in the event an accident occurs.
Lawyers Can Be Held Accountable As Well
Every state sets the rules of professional conduct that attorneys must follow. When a lawyer enters into an attorney-client relationship with someone, they are obligated to act in that person’s best interests. An attorney can be held accountable if they:
- Abuse their client’s finances or settlement agreements
- Enter into agreements without their client’s consent
- Neglect to inform their client of important information
- Misses deadlines or does not fill out paperwork properly
- Has a conflict of interest in the case and does not disclose it
