When Bad Accounting Results In Financial Losses
An accountant’s failure to follow a reasonable standard of care can result in serious financial losses for clients. If you were a victim of accounting fraud or negligence, you are entitled to any damages that resulted from your accountant’s mishandling of your finances, including loss of future earnings, investments and retirement income. You are also entitled to reimbursement of all costs you paid for the accountant’s professional services, as well as any monies paid to other professionals to fix the damage caused by the accountant.
