Medical Malpractice

Navigating Through the Legal Malpractice Claims Process

The process of bringing a legal malpractice claim against a lawyer is somewhat complex and involved. First, the client must have a viable legal theory on which to base their cause of action. Next, they must be able to prove that they were damaged due to some negligent act or omission on the part of their attorney. A myriad of elements must be proven in order for a case to meet these requirements. As such, it is important for any individual who feels they have been wronged by an attorney’s acts or omissions to seek out professional help from an experienced legal malpractice attorney who can guide them through this complicated process. In order to better understand how difficult it is to bring a successful legal malpractice claim, a general understanding of the legal malpractice process is in order.

What is Legal Malpractice?

To begin, it is necessary to define what legal malpractice entails. Legal malpractice refers to negligence on the part of an attorney that results in financial harm or other losses incurred by their client. It also includes situations where an attorney fails to act at all when required to do so, ultimately causing damage or loss to their client. It should be noted that proving legal malpractice can be difficult since it essentially requires one party (the plaintiff) to prove everything that another party did wrong (the defendant). Now that we have a better understanding of what legal malpractice entails, let’s take a look at how one might go about bringing such a claim before the proper authorities.
