When a person hires a professional to help with a problem, he or she expects the professional to act professionally and with a high level of care. However, many professionals do not follow professional standards which can harm their clients or patients. When a professional breaches his or her duties and commits harm, the victim may sue for malpractice.
Professionals include anyone with specialized schooling and training who holds themselves out as an expert. Professionals could include financial planners, clergy, doctors, lawyers, dentists, engineers, psychologists, architects, accountants, pharmacists, real estate agents, and others. In some cases, mistakes happen. Not every mistake warrants a lawsuit. However, if the malpractice is serious enough to cause harm, and if it could have been avoided if the professional had acted correctly, the professional can be held liable for malpractice.
Professional malpractice cases can often be hard to prove. The plaintiff must show that the professional committed malpractice, which can often be touch to prove. The plaintiff also must show that he or she was harmed because of the malpractice. In some cases the professional does not have any malpractice insurance or assets, in which case a lawsuit may not be worth pursuing. A professional malpractice attorney can help advise you on the best course to take with a potential lawsuit
If you believe you were harmed by a professional, you should contact an attorney with the knowledge and experience to pursue your professional malpractice case.
