Call Houston Professional Liability Attorneys When Your Career Is at Stake

Doctors, nurses, CPAs, and other professionals work hard to build their careers. Many professionals undergo years of intense training before they can even be licensed to work in their chosen profession.

But sometimes clients and patients fail to understand the treatment they received. Some even just see a quick buck if they feel a mistake has been made. And sometimes, despite years of practice, professionals do make mistakes. However, do all errors support a professional liability claim?

Elements of Malpractice

Generally, someone who files a professional liability claim must prove the following:

  • Duty. The professional who treated them had a duty to provide a certain standard of care.
  • Breach. Action or inaction on the part of the professional created a breach of their duty to the party.
  • Damage. The party was damaged in some way.
  • The professional’s breach of the duty of care caused the party’s damages.

It’s critical that anyone sued for professional liability speak with an experienced attorney immediately.

Consequences of Professional Liability Cases

Ignoring a malpractice lawsuit can lead to dire and long-lasting consequences:

  • Skyrocketing insurance premiums.
  • Damage to your good reputation.
  • Reduced income.
  • Temporary or permanent loss of license to practice.

At the very least, you might feel a sense of loss or lack of confidence going forward.
