Professional Malpractice Attorneys in New York
Professional malpractice encompasses the liability of people in professions where the clients are owed a certain legal duty.
Professional malpractice issues arise with attorneys, accountants, physicians, law firms, brokers, real estate and other licensed professionals failing to meet their standards of professional competence.
A professional that does not meet their obligation and apply their education and training in a competent and ethical manner can face serious consequences.
Physicians, nurses, and even hospital administrators have a professional obligation to their employees and patients. Medical malpractice in New York is a result of a doctor, or a member of their office being neglectful or incompetent. These actions (or inactions) of a medical professional can resulted in the patient’s harm.
An experienced attorney is needed in malpractice cases to navigate the differing standards of care applicable to each patient or entity that took care of the patient.
Medical malpractice lawsuits will almost always require the hiring of expert witnesses who can explain the medical condition, appropriate treatment and assess whether the care provided met the legal standard.
Legal malpractice ranges from simple tasks such as statute of limitations failures to complex business transactions involving failed mergers of major corporations.
The duties that lawyers’ owe their clients are complicated and multifaceted. An attorney with a thorough understanding of the New York Bar Association’s Code is needed.

Like attorneys, accountants are also certified by third-party entities responsible for ensuring that the accountants meet certain standards.
Certified Public Accountants give important opinions which are relied upon in a variety of contexts. Their work is relied upon during tax assessments, municipal budget statements, stock evaluations and bankruptcy proceedings.
When accountants fail to exercise professional responsibilities they can be sued for negligence.
Real estate professionals are often sued for their involvement in transactions that go awry or fall apart. In certain cases, if the homeowner fails to disclose defects about a property prior to sale, the buyer can sue the realtor.
