In practice, professionals such as attorneys, engineers, accountants, bankers and other practitioners are held to a higher standard of care, when performing duties in fulfilment of a given mandate from a client. A failure by a professional to perform service with the requisite degree of care and skill may constitute negligence, if the displayed conduct and actions fall short of the norm of what would be expected from the reasonable practitioner in that specific field.
Such negligence can manifest in various forms. Under such a scenario, the client will have a right of recourse against the practitioner for damages that may have been suffered as a result of the professional’s negligence. DESTONE & CO has the necessary knowledge& expertise to assist the aggrieved client, so as to place the client in the position that the client would have been in, were it not for the professional’s negligent conduct.
