Professional Malpractice Misconduct
Other professional malpractice occurs outside of those involved in medical malpractice includes. Any professional may be sued for malpractice if they do not adhere to the accepted standards of their discipline or specialty. While medical malpractice is almost always associated with damages for personal injuries and death, other types of malpractice – legal, broker, and accounting, for example – cause only monetary damages.
As with medical malpractice cases, those involving negligence by other professionals require a great degree of skill to litigate. They also require the attorney representing the injured party to retain a qualified expert in the field who has reviewed all of the relevant evidence and is willing to testify that the defendant has, indeed, “departed from good and accepted standards of practice” in the field.
