What is malpractice?
Malpractice generally refers to a failure to follow the accepted standards of practice in a particular profession, which results in harm to the client/patient.. The most common types of malpractice claims involve medical malpractice, legal malpractice, and dental malpractice.
How do I prove malpractice?
Usually, proof of failure to comply with accepted standards of a professional practice requires the testimony of a professional with expertise in the area of such practice. For example, in a medical malpractice claim, the standard of care is usually established by expert testimony on how similarly qualified practitioners would have managed the patient's care under the same or similar circumstances. Some states have special evidentiary rules applicable to malpractice claims.
