Our professional malpractice lawyers protect your rights against errors caused by industry professionals
People with specialized training or education, such as doctors, engineers, accountants, and lawyers, have professional obligations to their patients, customers, and clients. Failure to meet those obligations constitutes malpractice. Malpractice may occur when:
- Professionals make errors that cause injury or loss
- A professional fails to adequately explain the risks or alternatives of a procedure, often referred to as informed consent
Our experienced professional malpractice lawyers will investigate an injury or loss to determine if malpractice has been committed. For medical malpractice, this often involves gathering medical records and having them reviewed by a specialist to find out if there was malpractice, or negligence, committed by the professional.
There may be short deadlines to bring legal action for professional malpractice, so it is important to contact a Hale Skemp professional malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
