Professional Malpractice

Members of certain professions, such as doctors, lawyers, and accountants, may be liable for professional negligence, also known as malpractice. Professional negligence occurs when a professional fails to exercise a degree of care that is exercised by well-qualified professionals in the same field. This standard is based on how well-qualified professionals ordinarily and customarily perform, rather than on how reasonable professionals should have performed.
