What Constitutes Professional Negligence?
In broad terms, professional negligence occurs whenever a professional in a specific industry fails to properly perform or provide services for which they were hired. Professionals must exercise “reasonable care” when it comes to performing or providing the services for which they were hired. This means that they must generally act in the same way another ordinarily prudent, rational person would in the same or similar circumstances. When professionals fail to exercise reasonable care, leading to personal injury, financial loss, and other damages, they can be held legally accountable.
Some examples of professional negligence include:
- Breach of contract
- Failure to deliver goods or services
- Failure to provide or perform services
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Gross negligence
- Negligence per se
- Fraud and attempted fraud
- Failure to conduct due diligence
Professional negligence can occur across a wide range of industries, including medical and healthcare, legal, accounting, architecture, engineering, and more.
How Do You Prove Professional Negligence?
To prove professional negligence, you must prove each of the following elements:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care, meaning a professional and/or contractual relationship existed between you and the defendant
- The defendant failed to uphold the duty of care, typically by failing to act in a way that another qualified professional would have acted or acting in a way that another qualified professional would not have acted in the same or similar circumstances
- You were harmed—i.e., you suffered a physical, emotional, and/or financial injury—which resulted in measurable damages, or losses, for which you can be compensated
- The defendant’s failure to uphold the duty of care was the direct or proximate cause (known as “causation”) of your injury and resulting damages
