What constitutes malpractice?

Partners Ira Sherman, Joseph Cammarata and Allan Siegel have been litigating medical malpractice and occasionally legal malpractice cases for decades. Malpractice is nothing more than a subset of the law of negligence. Malpractice means that an individual is practicing below the standard of care. A "maladjusted person" is a person who does not behave in conformance with the expectations of society. A doctor or other professional that commits "malpractice" is not performing in accordance with reasonable conduct as expected within that profession. If you believe that a doctor, lawyer, accountant or any other professional including a priest or other religious leader, has not acted appropriately and committed "malpractice", call one of the partners at Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. for a free consultation .
