Errors during a trial? You could have a case

Making mistakes during a trial is something you don't want to see happen. Mistakes could ruin your case and mean that you end up with a conviction or sentence that you do not want.

Attorneys sometimes make mistakes that don't have a significant outcome on the trial, but when an error is so serious that it does, it has to be corrected. Not pursuing an appeal and looking for support with a legal malpractice claim could be a mistake in that situation.

What are some common errors made by attorneys during trial?

Some legal trial errors include:

  • Failing to object at appropriate times
  • Failing to keep evidence out before or during a trial
  • Failing to inform you of all your options, such as different trial strategies or settlement options

These are just a few of the possible mistakes that could be made that could have a significant effect on the outcome of your case.

Why do attorneys make mistakes?

Sometimes, it's because of inattention. Perhaps they weren't listening closely to object, or maybe they didn't notice a particularly damaging piece of evidence was still going to court unchallenged.

Other times, it may be inexperience or a lack of knowledge that plays a role in an attorney's errors. Without the right knowledge, it can be easy to make mistakes that impact clients negatively.
