Inadequate legal support? You may be a victim of malpractice

| May 21, 2020 | Legal Malpractice Law |

Inadequate legal work can be a big problem when you’re trying to make a legal claim or fight for compensation. You do your best to give all of the right information to your attorney, but it’s their job to make it possible for you to state your case in a clear manner.

Unfortunately, some attorneys do not do their job effectively. Sometimes, they provide inadequate support, which can leave you in a bad position or result in the loss of your case.

What should you do if you think your attorney isn’t handling your case correctly?

If you’re concerned that your attorney isn’t handling your case correctly, the first step is to speak to them about it. If you feel that your attorney is not working on your case or hasn’t been clear with communication, it’s time to reach out and ask for answers.

The next thing you can do is to ask for your case file. This will show you what your attorney has already done and give you copies of all correspondence. If your attorney doesn’t want to provide those copies to you, you can ask the courthouse to provide copies of everything that has been filed in regards to your lawsuit or case.

Finally, if you’re struggling with what steps to take next, it might be the right time to talk to a new attorney about your concerns. A different attorney can provide you with information on the law and what is expected from an attorney, so you can decide if you have been a victim of malpractice.
