While most people primarily associate malpractice lawsuits with the medical profession, malpractice claims also sometimes filed against architects and engineers. Such claims typically arise from a personal injury linked to unsafe conditions in a home or building, or from other alleged structural inadequacies. Essentially, the plaintiff is accusing the architect or engineer of failing to perform a specified professional duty.
