What Is Professional Negligence?
Professional negligence or malpractice occurs when an individual fails to meet accepted performance standards and causes harm to a client. This could include anything from failing to recognize warning signs of a serious illness to breaking a confidentiality agreement with a patient or client.
It is important to remember, though, that simply receiving a negative outcome is not, in and of itself, evidence of malpractice. Laws related to professional negligence are very clear about what types of activities constitute negligence. They also place strict limitations on the time frame for filing a claim and the damages that may be sought. It is important you contact a professional negligence lawyer who can review your case and help you file a claim on time if appropriate.
