Professional Negligence or Misconduct

When you trust a professional you expect a certain level of competence. The failure of a professional to abide by minimum standards exposes the professional to a suit for negligence. Doctors, lawyers and contractors make news by falling below accepted minimum standards of care. Keep in mind, there are many other parties whose professional behavior is monitored: massage therapists, chiropractors, nurses, stock brokers, police officers, dentists, real estate brokers, psychologists and health care technicians. All have guidelines they must abide by. All have minimum standards they must comply with. All rightfully face potential litigation and liability for falling below accepted minimum standards of care in their profession. Our lawyers are familiar with these standards and, more importantly, how to prove professional negligence at trial.

Negligent behaviors on the part of employees who work for professionals can be included within the scope of professional negligence.  If a professional fails to adequately watch or monitor an employee and the employee’s negligence causes an injury the professional can be held legally responsible.

A finding of professional negligence may cause a professional to lose their license. As such, professional negligence cases tend to be defended vigorously.
