What Is Legal Malpractice?

people in front of a courtIf you're reading this, there is a good chance you feel that you've been let down by your medical malpractice or personal injury attorney. It is bad enough that someone else’s negligence has seriously harmed you, affecting your health and livelihood, but getting bad service from the person you hired to rectify your situation you adds insult to injury. Missing a filing deadline, not returning your calls, agreeing to a settlement amount without your permission, or misinterpreting a law are all examples of legal malpractice.

If you feel your attorney was incompetent, dishonest, or failed to act in your best interests, you have the right to hold them accountable. Don’t lose faith in all lawyers just because you had a bad experience with one. The experienced attorneys at Grant Law Office are dedicated to getting justice for victims of serious injury and medical malpractice, and related legal woes.

What Constitutes Legal Malpractice?

When is a lawyer liable for legal malpractice? There are two essential components:

  1. Negligence: The attorney failed to exercise ordinary care, skill, and diligence under the existing circumstances; and
  2. Damages: There is proof that the legal negligence caused harm. The damages may be the loss of a valid and valuable legal claim; for example, if you suffered a serious medical mistake, and your lawyer does not do his due diligence to uncover the evidence proving what happened, or fails to ask for the compensation your claim is truly worth.

Lawyers are legally bound to act in the best interests of their clients. The failure to do so is referred to as a breach of fiduciary duty.

Only an Experienced Lawyer Can Handle These Cases

At Grant Law Office, we take our vocation seriously, and consider it a personal affront when a colleague practices law negligently, or worse, in a dishonest manner. A legal malpractice lawsuit seeks to place you in the position in which you would have been, had your legal matter been handled properly. There may be additional damages for any breach of fiduciary duties, or in some cases, additional punitive damages designed to punish or deter the negligent lawyer from repeating this conduct.
