Professionals are held to higher standards than ordinary people — and rightly so. They have a higher level of training, skill, education and experience, which can all make professional negligence malpractice cases some of the most infuriating because there is an expected standard of care from these professionals that we rely on as a society.
Additionally, many professionals fill a fiduciary role, meaning they’re entrusted with the interests of someone else and duty of care. They have an obligation to exercise their duties with reasonable care, prudence, diligence and ethical integrity. Professional negligence claims can stem from a breach of any of these where personal injury or damages occur as a result of breach of duty, malpractice, medical malpractice, commercial litigation, legal malpractice or many other legal cases are needed to compensate for damages.

Professional negligence cases are rarely black-or-white. Causation, professional conduct and more are often involved, however disputes often center on the applicable standard of care.
To establish negligence, you must show that the professional failed to use the same degree of skill and care that a reasonably prudent individual in that same profession would use under similar circumstances, showing what the standards of care are in this profession and can be required to pursue malpractice cases.
