Riverside Professional Malpractice Attorney

People who are considered professionals based on their careers typically have specialized education, degrees, licensing, tests, and continuing education related to their profession and people who hire them rely on them for their professional services. Clients and patients usually rely on their expertise for things they cannot do themselves such as design a home, prepare complicated tax documents, and perform surgical operations. Riverside professional malpractice attorneys know that when professionals are negligent in their professional practice, innocent clients and patients may suffer serious harm.

Standard of care

Different professional fields have different defined standards of care and expectations, but in general, professionals owe their clients the same or similar level of competence and service that another similarly situated professional would have practiced under the same circumstances. When they depart from the level of skill and care that other similarly situated professionals would have practiced or provided, there may be a breach of the standard of care leading to professional negligence if the client suffered harm as a result.

Types of malpractice

There are many types of professionals that can be held accountable for professional malpractice and some of the more common types are detailed below.

  • Real estate professionals – Harm that may be suffered due to real estate malpractice includes purchasing property without a good title, real estate transactions falling through, and failure to disclose defects leading to expenses and other damages for purchasers.
  • Accountants – Errors in preparing tax documents or giving incorrect or otherwise inappropriate tax advice can lead to financial penalties and even criminal convictions and incarceration.
  • Engineers and architects – Negligence in planning and design may lead to poorly constructed homes and structures sometimes causing personal injury and remediation expenses.
  • Medical professionals such as doctors, dentists, and chiropractors – Medical malpractice can occur in a number of ways such as failing to diagnose or making a surgical error that leads to injuries, additional medical procedures, or death.
  • Attorneys – Legal malpractice can happen with negligent conduct such as missing a statute of limitations, inadequate representation leading to conviction or losing a plaintiff’s case, or giving incorrect legal advice causing clients to suffer harm.
  • Financial planners – Malpractice may arise due to a breach of fiduciary duty such as recommending stock because the financial advisor gets commissions instead of doing what is best for clients or other types of mismanagement and unethical conduct that leads to financial losses for clients.

Financial recovery for professional malpractice

Financial recovery depends on the type of malpractice and the injuries and damages sustained. Recovery may include, but is not limited to financial losses, medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and emotional distress.
