Legal malpractice: You have rights and can pursue compensation

Legal malpractice can be a serious issue that makes you confused about the steps to take next. Fortunately, there are attorneys who specialize in this kind of case. Just like medical malpractice or any other kind of claim, when an attorney is negligent or malicious toward you during a case and causes you to lose your case, that's a problem. Violating a code of ethics or breaching your contract is a real concern as well.

When an attorney violates your trust by failing to present your case in a fair manner or fails to defend you appropriately, you may have a case against that party. For example, attorneys must be competent and provide you with skillful representation. If you do not receive the representation you expected because of the attorney's lack of knowledge, then you may be able to file a lawsuit against that person.

The attorney also has the duty not to act carelessly or to make mistakes. For instance, your attorney should know when to file documents. If he or she fails to file a time-sensitive document on time, it could cost you your case. If this kind of negligence leads to injury, harm or a financial losses, then you are likely to have a claim against the attorney.

Neglect is one of the more common issues clients run into. Disregarding your case, being indifferent to your needs or being careless are all violations of your contract and can be disputed in court.

If you're affected by legal malpractice, you can fight back. Our website has more information on the steps you can take to get compensated.
