Jacksonville firm sued for mishandling medical malpractice case

While most in Florida understand that the legal profession can be quite lucrative for its practitioners, the expectation is that attorneys will still put their clients' interests above the potential of a significant payday. Attorneys may be incentivized to do so, as there will typically be little to recover if they are unable to secure favorable rulings for their clients. It may only be when an attorney takes their eyes off the obligation they have to their clients that problems arise. 

What happens when lawyers fail to meet deadlines?

When you hire an attorney, you may put your full trust in his or her ability to represent you in court. Attorneys should have complete and full knowledge of the judicial process and should use this information to ensure your case has the best possible chance of succeeding. There are situations, however, where attorneys do not always meet the needs of their clients. Legal mistakes may be made that have a direct impact on the outcome of the case. Attorneys may be deficient in their responsibilities when they fail to meet important legal deadlines pertaining to the case.

What are the most common legal malpractice claims?

When you hire a lawyer in Florida, you expect that he or she will do a competent job. However, sometimes issues come up and your lawyer does not do a fair job. In these situations, you have the option of taking your lawyer to court for legal malpractice. There are various reasons why you may sue for malpractice. It often depends on the type of case you had.

Legal malpractice involving an estate plan

Legal malpractice takes on many forms and can impact those who are working through a real estate transaction or a personal injury case. However, it is vital to remember that these challenges can also affect those who are dealing with estate planning issues. From malpractice that manifests during the probate process to malpractice related to the creation of an estate plan, there are many different ways in which people are affected by this wrongdoing. Our law firm also knows that for many people in Florida and all over the country, estate planning is an especially complex and emotional topic, which makes malpractice even more upsetting.
