Professional Malpratice

Heurlin Sherlock is Tucson’s Top Trustworthy and Professional Attorneys For Handling Professional Malpractice Claims

One’s status as a professional does not prevent instances or accusations of negligence. People in licensed professions often have special duties of care and restrictions that don’t necessarily apply to other people or businesses. Professional malpractice is not judged by the “ordinary person” standard of negligence used in tort cases, but rather by the “standard of professional care” that is commonly expected of people in the particular licensed profession they have chosen. The Tucson attorneys at Heurlin Sherlock can assist you in either recouping from an instance of professional malpractice by others, or protecting your reputation from charges of malpractice.

Various Forms of Professional Malpractice

Professional malpractice cases can take a variety of forms, depending on the type of professional work at issue. Common cases of professional malpractice involve:

Accountant/CPA Malpractice – When accountants and CPAs help to facilitate fraud, embezzlement or other practices which prevent company managers from knowing the true financial health of their organization, they too can be subject to malpractice lawsuits. Such professionals owe a duty of care to their clients through standard and lawful accounting practices.

Legal Malpractice – When other attorneys fail to live up to their oath to serve their clients to the best of their abilities, it reflects poorly on the entire legal profession and can severely damage a client’s legitimate case. No attorney can guarantee a specific result in a case, but instances of failing to file critical documents on time, neglecting to make appropriate attempts at discovery, failing to research relevant laws or regulations, neglecting clients and refusing to communicate with them, breaching a client’s confidentiality or engaging in a conflict of interest can all result in malpractice claims.

In fact, any profession which requires licensing and is regulated by the state can be subject to professional malpractice claims. The professional and trustworthy Tucson attorneys of Heurlin Sherlock can offer the best evaluation of your professional malpractice case to help protect your well-being, reputation, or economic interests.
