Texas Legal Malpractice & Medical Negligence
Criminal Defense in Dallas / Ft. Worth, Houston and throughout Texas
Professional misconduct, also referred to as malpractice or negligence, is a breach or violation of ethical standards set by a profession. When a professional fails to follow standards, it can cause significant harm or damage to a client, especially in the fields of law and medicine, where negligence can be life threatening or life altering. Professional misconduct can happen within any field, although medicine, law, banking and pharmaceuticals seem to be the most publicized. Conflict of interest, gross negligence (failure to diagnose, etc.), money mismanagement, and disclosure of personal information are some of the ways in which professional misconduct occurs.
Punishments for professional misconduct vary from state to state and depend on the type of misconduct and the damage caused by it. Fines, punitive damages, compensation, probation and license revocation are some of the ways in which charges of professional misconduct are settled.
