Professionals in a wide range of fields, such as healthcare, financial, legal and engineering, are expected to meet certain standards of conduct and care set by their industries. In broad terms, professional negligence occurs when a surgeon, dentist, lawyer, accountant, architect, real estate broker or other professional fails to meet the acceptable standards set by the industry and which also results in damage to a patient or client.

Today with the technological advances in medicine and the high degree of specialization in many fields, as a patient or client, you are often distanced from understanding whether or not the care or service you receive will harm you, and increasingly rely on the judgment of a professional.
Professional negligence and malpractice laws are designed to protect patients' and clients’ rights to pursue compensation, if they are injured as a result of negligence. If you believe you have a malpractice claim, it is important to consult with an attorney who will discuss your case with you, and help you determine the legal remedies available to you.
