Respected Boutique Law Firm Protects Your Rights in All Business Disputes
Professionals may be liable if their actions or failure to act breached the standard of care of their profession and caused serious harm to a patient or client.

Different types of professional malpractice are as follows:

  • Hospital malpractice — emergency room errors, surgical errors, birth injury, medication errors, misdiagnosis, lab error and others
  • Physician malpractice — failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, failure to properly monitor treatment regimes, failure to administer and monitor drug, and others
    Anesthesiology malpractice
  • Nursing home malpractice, abuse or neglect
  • Pharmaceutical malpractice
  • Legal malpractice — due to a missed deadline for filing a lawsuit, poor representation or other errors
  • Accountant malpractice — such as negligent tax preparation
  • Architect malpractice
  • Engineering malpractice
  • Banking and securities malpractice
  • Real estate agent and mortgage broker malpractice

Malpractice claims require a high level of proof that the professional or organization made a substantial error, and that the victim was directly and substantially harmed.

For example, to succeed in a legal malpractice claim, you must show that you would have won the underlying case if not for the attorney’s error. Medical malpractice cases require extensive medical record research, and for a well-qualified doctor in the same general field of medicine to attest that the standard of care was breached and that the breach was the proximate cause of the injuries suffered by the claimant. Malpractice claims can be very expensive to pursue; a provable claim must be confirmed, then assessed for the cost-efficiency of prosecution.
