Professional Malpractice

Professionals, like doctors, lawyers, accountants, and insurance brokers make mistakes. Although professionals don’t “guarantee” results, they are required to satisfy a professional standard of care that requires the knowledge and diligence usually found in their profession. Professionals and their insurance companies are legally responsible for your losses if they don’t. Here are some common examples of professional malpractice:

  • Medical malpractice: Failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, failure to properly treat, failure to get informed consent, and exceeding the scope of consent.
  • Legal malpractice: Failure to meet specific deadlines resulting in dismissal or unfavorable outcomes; failure to adequately investigate your case; failure to keep you informed of events in your case, and failure to competently complete a trial.
  • Accountants and investment broker malpractice: failure to follow through with your instructions and failure to provide adequate and accurate financial and other information.

As with all of our cases, we make sure our ducks are in a row to start with. That means running your situation by a reputable professional to determine whether you have a case. If you have a case, then we move forward. Forcefully.
