Hospitals, physicians and other professionals (attorneys, architects, etc.) are required to practice in a manner consistent with accepted standards of conduct. Patients or clients who suffer injury as a result of a violation of these standards may have recourse to a claim for damages.
When you hire a professional to work on your behalf, whether it be a contractor, architect, doctor, therapist or, yes, even an attorney, you expect that the professional in question will adhere to a certain professional standard of service and integrity. When this standard or integrity is violated, that professional entity should be held accountable. In some cases, the negligence or malpractice is accidental, in others it is more blatant and malicious. Either way, as a consumer, you have the right to demand accountability for professional negligence.
