We rely on professionals to take care of our health, safety, and welfare. Doctors, lawyers, dentists and other professionals all have ethical standards set by their regulatory bodies which each person must strive to achieve. When a professional’s behavior falls below this criteria, then he or she may have committed malpractice.
If you have been a victim of any form of professional malpractice, then you have a legal right to take action against the person or entity that wronged you. The New Jersey professional malpractice lawyers of Levinson Axelrod, P.A. can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Malpractice occurs when a person with a higher standard of care is negligent in his or her actions. For example, a doctor has a responsibility to protect her patient’s health, and a lawyer has a responsibility to advance his client’s case. When a profession fails in this duty because of negligence, he or she may be responsible to the patient or client who was injured.
Though we most often hear about malpractice claims against attorneys and doctors, other types professional workers may also take negligent and damaging courses of action. Accountants, engineers and architects, for instance, may be responsible if their negligence causes you harm.
Negligence actions against accountants frequently result from the allegedly negligent preparation of financial statements or tax returns. Architects, interior designers, and engineers are required to use the degree of care that most professionals, of ordinary knowledge and skill, would use under similar circumstances. Claims against architects, interior designers, and engineers may include a claim of defective design or insufficient specification of materials.
We hire skilled professionals to take care of our health, our homes, and our well-being. If you have been injured or damaged by the negligence of a doctor, lawyer, architect, or other professional, you deserve compensation. The New Jersey injury attorneys at Levinson Axelrod, P.A. can help protect your rights and assist you in recovering the highest compensation possible.
