What Is a “Professional?”

A “professional” is defined as someone who possess a certain level of education and/or expertise within a specified field, and who performs work within this field as their occupation, rather than pastime. Professionals may be hired for specific jobs and are often required to perform their duties in a manner that meets a designated standard of service and/or care.

Some examples of “professionals” include:

  • Doctors, nurses, and other medical providers
  • Attorneys and paralegals
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Financial advisors
  • Broker-dealers
  • Teachers and professors
  • Conveyancers
  • Real estate agents
  • Insurance agents
  • Accountants/certified public accountants (CPAs)
  • Consultants

These are just some examples of “professionals.” If you have been negatively affected by any type of professional’s misconduct or negligence, you could have a professional negligence claim.

How Does Professional Negligence Occur?

Professional negligence occurs when a professional fails to perform their professional duties in a way that meets the standard of service/care for that particular profession. In other words, if a professional fails to act in a way that another similarly qualified professional would in the same circumstances, or if a professional acts in a way that another similarly qualified professional would not act in the same circumstances, they have likely been negligent.

Some examples of professional negligence include:

  • General negligence
  • Negligence per se
  • Gross negligence
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Lack of due diligence
  • Fraud
  • Attempted fraud
  • Failure to meet deadlines

Essentially, when professionals cut corners or fail to carry out important tasks, leading to financial or other harm, they can be held liable.
