Improper handling of legal documents can ruin your case

You were very cautious when giving your attorney the documents that they'd need for your case. You relied on their expertise to turn in the right paperwork and to handle your documents correctly.

You know that a well-trained attorney should know how to handle your documents, when to file a claim, how to submit files to the court and so on. You expected your attorney do be able to represent you correctly and to take care of the filing of your case.

Unfortunately, you found out that your forms were not filed correctly. As a result, you missed filing deadlines and are now unable to file your claim with the court. You're furious, but is there anything you can do?

You deserve a chance to seek compensation

Legal malpractice is a serious problem. If your attorney improperly handled your legal documents, you may have a case against them.

For example, some instances of legal malpractice may include:

  • Failing to respond to motions
  • Failing to file by the deadline
  • Omitting clauses in a document
  • Missing the statute of limitations on your case
  • Failing to file in accordance with court orders

Once your attorney makes a mistake like these, it may be difficult for you to get your initial case heard by the court. If you lose your right to your claim, then it's worth the time to talk to others about your options. You should learn more about your legal rights and determine if you have a case. If you do, you may be able to hold the attorney liable for their failures.
