Professional Negligence


Professional negligence is a specific area of tort law that involves claims against members of professions that are regulated by law, a governing body, or some other professional standards.

This includes, but is not limited to, claims against lawyers, engineers, architects, real estate agents, dentists, nurses and doctors/specialists (see Medical Malpractice page).

The types of claims usually made against a lawyer are missed limitation periods, improvident or incorrect advice, improvident settlement of a claim (settled for too little or without proper written instructions), and technical errors of law.

For engineers, real estate agents, or architects, the types of claims made are similar to those noted above, although, the type of claims Preszler Injury Lawyers are able to assist with against these professionals are limited to those that involve personal injury.

Medical malpractice claims require a finding that the standard of care has not been met. This standard is dictated by the medical profession. To prove a case, expert opinion is required. If you feel the standard of care has not been met, you may complete the following actions, depending on circumstances:

  • File a complaint with the College of Physician and Surgeons of Nova Scotia
  • File a complaint with the College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia
  • File a complaint with the hospital
  • Speak to your family doctor, immediately
