Professional Malpractice

Professional Malpractice

 

When you hire a professional to stand by your side, be it an attorney, accountant, or an insurance agent, you pay for their experience and expect them to do their absolute best. But if they end up committing an act of negligence or malpractice that results in a financial loss for you or your business, you may need an attorney to help you recover.

 

Negligence and malpractice is a serious offense, one that goes against specific professional codes of conduct and can cost you time and money. At Nation Lawyers, our team of experienced attorneys can aggressively help you recover your losses for your harm caused due to professional malpractice by lawyers, accountants, insurance agents, and more. 

 

Professional malpractice can occur in almost any setting, but particularly in fields where people are bound by a code of ethics or a code of conduct. If you are unsure whether or not a professional you have worked with has committed malpractice, contact our attorneys today. We will review your case thoroughly and determine the best course of action to help you receive compensation.

 

Can You Help With Legal Malpractice?

 

Attorneys have to follow a professional code of conduct which binds them to handle your case correctly within the law, barring them from committing legal malpractice. The code does not mean that an attorney is required to win your case, nor does it mean that you may not disagree with them either. Legal malpractice must constitute negligence on the part of an attorney.

.

Legal malpractice can encompass every area of the law from personal injury, real estate, criminal defense, elder law, and more, and includes both trial law and situations outside of the courtroom. For example, if an attorney fails to identify and sue the correct defendant in your case, or they do not conduct timely discovery, you may have a claim for legal malpractice. Other situations where malpractice may be applied include:

 

  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Document and Drafting Errors
  • Improper Investigations
  • Not Following Court Orders
  • Failure to Communicate
  • Theft of a Trust Account
  • Libel or slander
  • Fraud or negligence
  • Overbilling

 

What Other Types Of Professional Malpractice Can You Help Me With?

 

Professional malpractice occurs in just about any industry. For example, Accounting Malpractice is a serious issue that can affect the financial prospects of both you and your business. If you work with a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) who does not follow what is known as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) or Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS), you may have a claim for malpractice. Such issues could include errors of omission, poorly-given advice, overbilling, or anything else that may cause you financial harm.

 

Auditors must maintain independence and remain professional. Moreover, according to the code of professional standards, accountants may face liability for malpractice to any person or business affected by their negligence. If your accountant has committed tax errors, given incorrect tax advice, manipulated financial statements, or worse, such as taking part in tax evasion or fraud, call our attorneys at Nation Lawyers today.

 

Our team can also protect your interests if you have been affected by insurance agent negligence or malpractice as well. If your insurance agent fails to identify potential coverage gaps or tell you about the proper coverage you may need, you may have a claim for malpractice. Common examples of insurance malpractice include:

 

  • Selling the wrong coverage
  • Misrepresenting coverage
  • Failure to communicate leading to lapses in coverage
  • Failure to notify of a notice of cancellation

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

I feel that my attorney has overbilled me for the hours he worked on my case. Is that malpractice?
