Professional Negligence

Regulated and skilled professionals carry the honour and burden of being held to a higher legal standard in the discharge of their professional duties. In the process of providing professional services to the public, any professional can become the subject of a professional negligence action or complaint. The immediate legal consequences confronting a professional for allegedly failing to meet professional standards can be two-fold: a professional negligence claim and a disciplinary proceeding before their relevant professional licensing body. In addition, an employer of licensed professionals may also attract vicarious liability for the professional negligence of its employees. Legal disputes with insurers can also emerge from professional negligence actions.
