Who can commit malpractice?

In theory, any professional who renders services upon which you and others rely can commit malpractice. Often, the professional is licensed or regulated by the state.

Accountants, attorneys, actuaries, chiropractors, dentists, physicians, psychologists, and therapists are typically the persons named in a "malpractice action". When others engage in malpractice, the action is usually not specifically called malpractice but negligence. In actual practice, only those who hold themselves out as having special skills or abilities are held accountable in malpractice litigation. Speak with our experienced Indianapolis medical malpractice attorney today if you would like guidance and award-winning representation on your medical malpractice case.
