What Is Professional Malpractice?

Professional Malpractice occurs when you seek the advice and/or representation of a professional and that professional causes you harm by his negligence. Professional Malpractice can include mistakes by any type of professional. When a doctor or healthcare provider commits malpractice, it is called medical malpractice. When a lawyer or paralegal commits malpractice, it is called legal malpractice. Other professionals can commit malpractice, as well, such as dentists, accountants, pastors, psychologists or counselors, and pharmacists.

If you have been harmed physically or financially as a result of professional malpractice, you may have a legal right to sue the professional for your damages. Contact the professional malpractice attorneys at The Hershewe Law Firm to find out if you have a case.

Dental Malpractice

Dentists must follow the standard of care when rendering treatment to you or your family members. When a dentist fails to appropriately treat a patient by pulling the wrong tooth or failing to diagnose an infection, the results can be painful and can mean a lifetime of unpleasant dental treatment, surgeries, and reconstruction of part of your mouth.

If you have been harmed by the negligent conduct of a dentist or oral surgeon, contact us today for a consultation and review of your claim.
