Professional Malpractice

Many different kinds of certified professions owe their clients unique care obligations. A
professional has committed malpractice when they breach their duty of care and hurt a patient
or client. As a result, they may be held accountable and forced to pay compensation for the
harm they caused. Malpractice comprises failing to provide the required level of care for those in
a profession, committing damaging mistakes out of neglect, or engaging in deliberate behavior
that endangers patients or clients. Professional malpractice is an act that harms or injures
someone due to incompetence, negligence, or wrongdoing.

Some examples of professional malpractice include:

  • Attorney malpractice
  • Medical malpractice
  • Therapist malpractice
  • Engineering malpractice
  • Architect malpractice
