Malpractice occurs across many different industries
While we are all familiar with the term “malpractice” as applied to medical professionals, however it is not strictly limited to the medical field. In addition to doctors, malpractice is also used to describe negligence across a wide range of professions. Some examples of malpractice include:
- Legal malpractice: Lawyers are held to a high standard with regards to negligence. Specifically, attorneys are prohibited from engaging in an area of practice in which they are not soundly competent. A lawyer is permitted to take on a matter in which they are not fully competent, but with the expectation that they will undertake study to become competent in that legal matter. Failure to do so may constitute negligence. Likewise, lawyers are expected to remain competent in their area of practice by participating in continuing legal education.
- Accountant malpractice: All accountants must rigorously adhere to the Generally Accepted Auditing Standards and the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles at all times. Failure to do so may constitute negligence. In addition, accountants who deal in securities must adhere to all pertinent state and federal regulations governing their sale and transfer.
- Medical malpractice: In the case of medical malpractice, physicians and nurses are held to a certain standard of care. If a doctor in a particular field fails to render care in a manner that would reasonably be expected by any other practicing doctor in that field, it can be said that that doctor acted negligently.
For any of these cases of negligence to result in a successful malpractice lawsuit, victims need to demonstrate how they were adversely affected. If you or a loved one has suffered from professional malpractice, the first and most important step in addressing the issue is to speak with skilled legal counsel.
