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.
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.
There are many types of professionals that can be held accountable for professional malpractice and some of the more common types are detailed below.
Financial recovery depends on the type of malpractice and the injuries and damages sustained.
