Professionals in various fields are required to uphold specific standards of care to their clients. Professional negligence or malpractice may occur when a professional fails to meet the standard of care that is specified for their profession. Sometimes, professional negligence results in damages to the party who was provided the professional services.
If you believe that you have been the victim of professional negligence or malpractice, it is imperative that you contact an experienced professional negligence lawyer without delay to preserve your claim. A professional negligence lawyer can analyze the facts, explain your rights, and seek the compensation that you deserve.
The Duty of Care
The term “duty of care” refers to a legal obligation that a party must comply with in order to prevent reasonably foreseeable harm to others. In the professional malpractice setting, it essentially defines the level of professionalism that must be met. Professional negligence occurs by act or omission when a party fails to meet the duty of care for their profession, and that failure causes damages. Industries requiring a license or certification to conduct business may fall into this category.
