As opposed to property injuries, personal injuries are defined as injuries to the body, mind, or emotions. Personal injury claims come in various forms, and car accidents, dog bites, medical negligence, and even nursing facility abuse are all examples of personal injury cases.

  • Professional negligence  

Suppose you’ve been hurt or suffered property or financial loss due to a professional’s carelessness and disregard for the standard of care. In that case, you may have a malpractice claim and be entitled to compensation. When you put your trust in a professional in Vermont, such as a doctor, lawyer, engineer, accountant, dentist, real estate broker, or insurance, the law requires them to deliver services that meet a reasonable standard of care. Malpractice can take numerous forms, ranging from missing a deadline to outright deception. We encourage you to get in touch with experienced lawyers to explore whether you might get compensation for your loss. Attorney malpractice may include, for example: 

  • A client lost money due to a missed statute of limitations filing. 
  • Failure to meet deadlines in the middle of a lawsuit 
  • Accounting malpractice might include: Failure to highlight crucial concerns in consultation or lawsuit 
  • Failure to file a client’s tax returns on time 
  • Revenues overstated or costs understated 
  • Failure to disclose existing liabilities with the help of other businesses.

The government acknowledges a universal obligation of care. This means that everyone has a responsibility to employ reasonable care in their actions to avoid foreseeable injuries. The level of care for each person’s duty is subject to change. The standard of care for duty usually requires someone to perform as a reasonable person would in similar circumstances.
