Professional Negligence All professionals (including doctors, lawyers, accountants, etc.) owe their client a duty of care, which generally requires the professional to act as a reasonably prudent doctor/lawyer, etc. would under the same or similar circumstances. A breach of this duty of care can make the negligent professional liable for the damages caused by their negligence. Contact the Law Office of Benjamin Garcia today to schedule a no obligation consultation to discuss whether you were the victim of professional negligence and what you can do about it.
