When you trust a professional you have a right to 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 minimum standards they must comply with.
All professionals rightfully face liability when they fall below the accepted minimum standards of care in their profession. Our lawyers are familiar with these standards and, more importantly, know 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 a professional negligence claim. If a doctor, lawyer or other professional fails to supervise 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.
