Legal and Medical Malpractice FAQs


How can an attorney help me prove that a lawyer or other professional caused me harm through negligence?

In order to prove that a lawyer or professional caused you harm by acting negligently, you typically need to prove that they owed you a duty of care and that duty was breached. Typically, this duty of care is automatically owed to all those who employ a professional. If they knowingly fail to perform to industry standards or violate their field’s standards of ethics, they can be found in breach of their professional duty towards you. An experienced attorney will know what it takes to help you prove this fact.

The Madison legal and professional malpractice attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. will work diligently for you in the event that you have suffered financial, emotional, or other types of burdens due to a lawyer or professional’s negligence.

What kind of evidence will be needed to prove that malpractice occurred?

Often, legal or professional malpractice cannot be proven with tangible evidence, but instead requires a preponderance of evidence. Preponderance of evidence simply implies that something is more likely than not. So, in malpractice cases, this type of evidence is used to show that either a lawyer or professional more likely than not acted negligently and caused their client to suffer financial or other types of burdens.

Due to the complexity of these kinds of cases, it is in your best interest to employ the services of one of the highly skilled Madison legal and professional malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.

Can I be compensated for damages caused by professional malpractice?

Professional malpractice occurs when a professional, such as an accountant, engineer, doctor, or teacher, does not act according to the standards of their field or in accordance with the ethics of their field. By knowingly neglecting to act in the client’s best interests and causing their client harm, a professional may be found guilty of professional malpractice. If this is the case, the client may be eligible for financial compensation for any harm they may have been caused.

Professional malpractice can be difficult to prove, but with the aid of a qualified attorney, you stand the best chance of winning your case and obtaining compensation for the damages and losses which you have suffered.
