Professional malpractice is the "umbrella" term for all kinds of malpractice. As part of their professional code of conduct, lawyers, doctors, dentists, and other professionals are required to provide their clients with a level of care that is both ethical and meets certain professional standards.
When they fail to maintain these standards, professionals can cause serious injuries of a physical or financial nature. If you believe that you have been the victim of professional malpractice, you should know about the legal rights that entitle you to compensation. Please contact our Chicago professional malpractice lawyers at Lane & Lane, LLC today.
The term, "Medical Malpractice", claims can apply to anyone in the medical profession, including doctors, nurses, emergency room workers, obstetricians, psychiatrists, and even hospitals. All have a responsibility to care for patients in a responsible manner, and must compensate them when they negligently make matters worse instead of better. But medical professionals seldom admit to mistakes; it typically takes the attention of an experienced malpractice attorney to get them to pay restitution. Contact us to get our attorneys on your side.
As certified health care professionals, dentists are required to deliver safe, ethical, and responsible care to their patients. If a dentist fails to provide the quality of care required by the law or a professional code of conduct, patients can be seriously injured.
Dentists, like other doctors, can commit malpractice many ways, including misdiagnosing conditions, prescribing the wrong medications, or failing to listen to a patient's concerns. If you experience harm because of the actions of your dentist, we can help. Please contact our Chicago professional malpractice lawyers today to find out more.
Lawyers are responsible for representing their client's best interests, not their own. If you have a lawyer who failed to protect your interests, ignored your case, or misrepresents the facts of your case or disobeys your repeated requests, he or she may be committing legal malpractice. Malpractice occurs when a legal professional provides substandard care or services to his client that results in harm.
When trying to determine if you are the victim of legal malpractice, two things need to be proven:
- First, that your lawyer committed gross misrepresentation of your interests in court
- Second, that if the lawyer had handled the work properly, you would have won your original case
