What is professional malpractice in Massachusetts?
Malpractice is defined as the failure to adhere to the “standard of care” for a particular profession. In order to prove malpractice in Massachusetts, a plaintiff (the person bringing the lawsuit) needs to establish two things:
1. That the plaintiff had a professional-to-client relationship with the defendant.
2. That the professional person (e.g. attorney, accountant, home inspector) rendered services below the acceptable standard of care; and
3. That the rendering of those services below the acceptable standard of care caused the plaintiff damage or loss.
