When you seek a professional’s help for a sensitive matter, such as your finances or health, you trust him or her to act with integrity and within the standards established by his or her profession. However, some professionals commit negligent or careless acts that breach their duties, harming the people who trust them.
In these situations, you need a lawyer on your side. At Purvis Thomson, LLP, we hold negligent professionals accountable for their actions. Our Boulder professional malpractice attorneys can help you secure the compensation you deserve.
When a professional is subject to a set of standards or code of conduct, they have the duty to uphold these standards whenever they work with a client. Any incompetent, negligent, or wrongful act that violates this duty of care and causes harm to a client is an act of malpractice. Professional malpractice can involve any actions that violate the standard of care, as well as a failure to act when the professional should have. In some cases, these professionals engage in intentional misconduct that harms their clients.
At Purvis Thomson, LLP, we handle a wide range of professional malpractice cases involving multiple professional fields. Some of the claims we handle include:
Identifying an act of malpractice can be a challenge. You may trust the professional to perform his or her duties competently, and you do not want to assume that he or she is not upholding the accepted standards of his or her industry. However, you should trust your judgment if you believe that something is wrong.
If you suspect that professional malpractice is occurring, document each piece of evidence as carefully as possible. Save emails, letters, contracts, and other forms of correspondence with the professional. Keep all pieces of evidence, such as prescription bottles, broken items, and bank statements, in a safe location. Ask any witnesses to the malpractice if you could save their contact information for future reference.
If you were in an accident or suffered a physical injury or illness due to the professional’s actions, save all documents related to those injuries, such as medical records or photographs. Once you gather this evidence and receive immediate medical attention for any injuries, speak to a Boulder professional malpractice attorney at Purvis Thomson, LLP.
