Types of Professional Malpractice

Attorney or Legal Malpractice Рinvolves negligence on the part of an attorney representing a client in a legal matter.

Dental Malpractice – also known as dental negligence, is the avoidable injury caused by a dental professional who fails to provide proper care.

Accounting Malpractice – is the negligent or careless preparation of financial documents, accounts, statements or taxes.

Pharmaceutical Malpractice – this type of professional negligence typically deals with prescription errors, providing the wrong dosage, mislabeling of prescriptions, or incorrect medications.

Architectural Malpractice – cases of architectural malpractice or negligence most commonly revolve around design errors, failure to correctly calculate loads and load-bearing capacities, or other major mistakes that lead to a failure accident and injuries.

Broker Negligence – most negligence claims in this area are related to failure to disclose risk, self dealing (putting the broker’s best interest ahead of the client) or churning (trading often to generate commissions).

“Professionals such as doctors, dentists, accountants, lawyers, and others are required to provide services that meet specific levels of service or care. When that standard of care is not met and an injury results, you may be entitled to compensation.”
