In order to receive compensation for malpractice, or professional negligence, we must first prove that the professional’s conduct (usually doctor, hospital or lawyer) fell below the standard of care in the profession, and caused resulting harm. Some instances of malpractice are easy to recognize where others may be complex or subtle. For example, surgery on the wrong body part is easy to see malpractice. Where as an attorney did not file the appropriate paperwork on time costing you tens of thousands of dollars and does not inform you of this is a form of malpractice that you may not have noticed. This requires evaluation and expertise not held by most plaintiff’s attorneys. This evaluation must be done through the cooperation of skilled trial attorneys such as those at Heiting & Irwin, and highly respected experts.
