Professionals are Held to a Standard of Care

June 2019

Professional malpractice is malpractice commited by someone who is a professional or holds themselves out to be an expert in a field.  Professional malpractice extends past the medcial field to include dentists, veternarians, psychologists and therapists just to name a few of the fields that are subject to professional malpractice.  Accountants are also subject to professional malpractice.  A bad result is not always the foundation of a professional malpractice claim.  A professional malpractice claim is typically founded on a deviation from the standard of care or from failing to follow a rule that governs the profession.
