It is always unfortunate when trusted professionals let their clients down. Legal malpractice occurs when an attorney either intentionally or negligently fails to do his or her job.
A claim for legal malpractice involves proving that the attorney was negligent and that the negligence resulted in damages.
Legal malpractice includes the failure to file a lawsuit against all appropriate parties in the time given to file the suit, the failure to pursue a case, and the failure to communicate a settlement offer.
Legal malpractice cases have strict time frames in which they must be filed, so speak with a lawyer about your claim as soon as possible.
Preparing a legal malpractice case requires thorough research and the use of attorney experts. Choose a lawyer who understands the complexities of legal malpractice cases.
