Trusted Professional Malpractice Lawyers, London Ontario

When we are soliciting professional help, things don’t always go according to plan. Sometimes, things go wrong and the results can be disastrous. For example, when a medical operation does not go according to plan, complications can give rise to serious injuries. Even highly specialized medical experts make mistakes. A birth injury, brain injury, and other medical errors are a reality for many.

If you or a loved one has suffered at the hands of a professional, you might be entitled to a professional malpractice claim. While we cannot expect professionals to be perfect all the time, we can expect a certain standard of service from professionals. In the legal world, this is called a professional standard of care. It is a duty that a professional owes to their clients.

Professional malpractice law is a specialized area of personal injury law. If the professional fails to meet a reasonable standard of care, this amounts to professional malpractice.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is professional malpractice litigation the same as medical malpractice litigation? 

Yes and no. Professional malpractice litigation refers to any profession. Medical malpractice refers to the medical profession. So, medical malpractice litigation is a type of professional malpractice litigation.

Is negligence the same as malpractice? 

No. Negligence occurs when someone makes a mistake that causes a person unintentional harm.

Do you have to pay a professional for them to be guilty of malpractice?

The four conditions that need to be met to win a malpractice case are often referred to as the 4 Ds. They are: Duty, Deviation, Direct Causation, and Damages.
