What is Professional Malpractice?
Professional malpractice occurs when a service provider’s or other professional’s negligent acts cause harm or injury to a client or patient. Professional malpractice can extend to doctors, nurses, caregivers, hospice or elder care workers, dentists, psychiatrists, psychologists and other therapists, lawyers, architects, engineers, accountants, stockbrokers, real estate agents and other professionals servicing Harris County residents. Specific examples of professional negligence or malpractice include breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, mismanagement, misconduct, carelessness, and errors in judgment that a reasonable professional would not have made under the circumstances. Most people think of medical malpractice first; however, various other forms of malpractice exist, including but not limited to real estate broker malpractice, stockbroker malpractice, and engineer malpractice.
A claim for professional malpractice essentially argues that the professional failed to conform to standards that a reasonably prudent professional in the field would conform to under a similar set of circumstances. This may be due to active wrongdoing but, more frequently, negligence provides the basis for a professional malpractice claim.
If a Houston, Texas professional has rendered services to you in a careless, unprofessional or otherwise inappropriate manner and you have subsequently suffered an injury — physical, emotional, or financial — you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a Houston professional negligence attorney to discuss your claim.
