Professional Malpractice Law Archives

A chiropractor's role in keeping patients healthy

When pain is severe enough to seek the help of a chiropractor, the situation can be a serious one. The chiropractic profession has long been known as an alternative medicine that aims to ease disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and has proven successful for patients across the globe. Those in Florida who have turned to this form of health care can choose various types of treatment, depending on the ailment. 

Common red flags of therapist malpractice

Choosing to see a therapist is a major step for many patients; that is why an honest and trustworthy professional is a must. For most, this brave and proactive choice is only the beginning of improved mental health and overall better quality of life, but what if a therapist proves to have the opposite effect? Patients in Florida have the right to take legal action if they suspect a therapist has made an ethical misstep in their practice.

When a vet makes a mistake

Most pet owners in Florida could agree that only the utmost quality care is suitable for their pets. This is why selecting the most trustworthy veterinarian is crucial. With all of the joys and comfort that a four-legged friend can bring to one's life, why not treat them with special care? Similar to human medical professionals, veterinarians must closely follow safety practices, as well as provide honest and appropriate care in the case that a mistake happens. 

Attorney loses license in malpractice case

When residents in Florida seek advice and help from a legal professional, they should be able to trust that the attorney has their best interests in mind. Part of this includes being able to trust that the lawyer would never do something that they knew to be illegal or unethical. While this seems like a basic thing, there are sadly some times when even a legal professional fails to uphold these duties.

A client's right to confidentiality

If you have retained an attorney in Florida, you should know that you have the right to privacy much like you would expect when you go to the doctor. In general, the American Bar Association indicates that a lawyer should not provide any details about you, your case or their relationship with you to any other person or entity except in very specific situations.

After charge dropped, man pursues legal malpractice

Florida residents who seek professional guidance from an lawyer when faced with serious legal issues should be able to trust in the quality of the advice that they receive. When they later discover that what they had been told by their attorney may not have been the most accurate or in their best interests, people need to know that they have the right to seek justice.

Insurance company claims legal malpractice

People and companies in New York who must hire lawyers need to know that once in a while, a lawyer will fail to act in the best interests of a client in some manner. People also deserve to know that they have some potential recourse if this happens to them. One insurance company based in Germany had to learn this the hard way and today is seeking compensation for what it claims to be a clear act of legal malpractice that had significant financial repercussions.

Knowing the ins and outs of medical negligence

Hospitals are, ideally, places of treatment, comfort and even hope. Floridians can rest assured knowing they have many reputable hospitals available across the state; today's advanced technologies in the medical field only add to that comfort. Yet some patients, despite these medical advantages, fall through the cracks. When a hospital does not fulfill its promises of caring and treating patients properly, a myriad of issues can occur. While a patient's wellbeing should be a top priority, there are instances in which that priority must be fought for. 

When a therapist crosses the line

Millions of Americans benefit from therapy, as it can help turn lives around for endless patients in need. It is an outlet through which many place life's troubles, and ultimately helps unearth answers to those hard times. Yet as with numerous industries, professional therapists do not always carry out honest practices -- in these cases, patients may choose to take legal action. What choices, exactly, do Floridians going through this unfortunate situation have? 

Legal malpractice statute of limitations

If you are like most people in Florida, one of the last things you might think about when working with an attorney is the possibility that the lawyer fails to provide you with the level of service and counsel you deserve. While this might be uncommon, problems like this can and do happen and they can leave clients wondering what they can do to move forward. In some situations, pursuing recourse for any harm or losses experienced may be appropriate. However, it is important to understand when this may be able to be done.
