Legal Malpractice Issues

Evaluate the outcome of your case for damages

| Jun 3, 2020 | Legal Malpractice Law |

Realizing that your lawyer didn’t handle your case in the way you wanted them to is a tough position to be in. One of the first things you need to do if you’re in this position is to evaluate the outcome of the case. If there are any damages that you suffered because of the lawyer’s negligence, you might have a claim for legal malpractice.

Our law firm can help you find out if your case meets the requirements for filing this type of claim. There are several points that you have to show in this type of case, but we can work on your behalf to tie everything together. It’s important that you show the court exactly what happened and how it led to you suffering damages.

There are many forms of legal malpractice that can occur. Some of the more common include missing filing deadlines, failing to properly disclose a conflict of interest and not following the client’s directives. Failing to get adequate consent before making decisions in the case is a major problem in some instances because it can alter the direction of the case.

We have to be able to show that what the lawyer did occurred in such a way that they were negligent. That negligence had to lead to the damages you suffered. For example, if you have a personal injury claim and the attorney misses filing it with the court prior to the expiration of the statute of limitation, you might have a valid claim.

We’re here to review your case and move forward with legal action if it is appropriate. We’ll represent your interests throughout the legal process.
