The legal system has been set up to protect people. In most cases, lawyers are here to fight for those who may be unable to fight for themselves, and they offer a great service to those who have been injured or wronged. Unfortunately, there are times where legal malpractice occurs. Legal malpractice cases can be very complicated, so you're encouraged to seek the assistance of an experienced legal malpractice attorney.
Legal malpractice occurs when a person claims that they have suffered damage due to their attorney’s negligence. Some common examples of legal malpractice include:
In order for you to prove that legal malpractice occurred, you must be able to demonstrate the following:
A difficult aspect of legal malpractice cases is what is known as the “attorney judgment rule.” Under this rule, if the lawyer acted in good faith and made errors in judgment with honest intentions, he cannot be held liable for these errors.
Another issue that affects legal malpractice cases is the ever changing legal system. Lawyers cannot be held liable for changes in the law during the course of their case. If there is new legislation that occurs after an attorney has advised his client, that attorney is not held responsible for the advice or legal representation they gave.
