Types of Legal Malpractice Claims

Lawyers have a professional responsibility to do their jobs in a diligent, competent and ethical manner. When they fail to uphold that duty, they violate clients' trust. Their negligence can cause significant financial losses.

Examples of legal malpractice include:

  • Failure to adhere to deadlines (such as statutes of limitations or filing deadlines)
  • Failure to prepare or file the right legal documents
  • Failure to conduct a proper investigation
  • Failure to identify a client's rights or claims
  • Failure to enlist the help of an expert when reasonably necessary
  • Failure to identify and disclose conflicts of interests
  • Failure to file for no-fault insurance benefits within the mandatory one-year period to file, resulting in missed benefits (particularly in cases involving trucks, or auto accidents)

Countless other legal mistakes can have a major impact on your rights.
