Professional Negligence / Malpractice

Lawyers, doctors, architects, surveyors, contractors and other professionals are hired to perform services and sometimes they make mistakes or errors in judgment that can result in losses for their clients. A mistake or error, however, does not automatically mean that malpractice has occurred. As professional negligence and malpractice cases can present some very technical issues, stethoscope the appropriate expert(s) should review your situation and provide an opinion as to whether the professional’s conduct fell below the appropriate standard of care.

Although the law typically allows you to pursue your own professional negligence case, given the complexities in the law and the amount of proof required to substantiate your case, you may be best advised to seek legal counsel. John O'Neal has handled professional negligence cases involving real estate transactions and providers of other professional services. If you believe a professional has made a mistake or error that has harmed you, contact the O’Neal Law Office .
