Professional Negligence Lawyer

Based in San Diego and Reno, The Drakulich Firm, A Professional Law Corporation, represents clients in professional negligence matters, including claims for medical malpractice and attorney malpractice.

Professional negligence

Everyone has a duty not to carelessly or purposely harm others. Professionals, such as doctors, pharmacists, nurses and lawyers, owe a heightened duty of care to their patients and clients. If the duty is breached and as a result the patient or client suffers a loss or injury, the professional may be held liable for damages.

Legal malpractice

There are various types of conduct that can give rise to a claim for legal malpractice. For instance, failing to timely file a lawsuit, resulting in a loss of rights for the client, can be sufficient to make a malpractice claim. A malpractice attorney can evaluate your case and tell you whether your lawyer's conduct rises to the level of negligence.

Medical negligence

Medical errors that commonly lead to malpractice lawsuits include improper diagnosis, medication errors, failure to obtain the patient's informed consent and performing treatments or surgeries incorrectly. A malpractice lawyer can evaluate your case and tell you whether your doctor's error or omission constitutes a claim for medical malpractice.

Seek experienced legal representation

If the advice, care, or services you received from a medical or legal professional resulted in harm to you or your loved one, seek advice from an experienced professional negligence lawyer. An attorney can evaluate your case, help you understand your options and advocate for justice on your behalf.
