Raleigh Legal Malpractice Lawyer
Legal malpractice refers to the failure of an attorney to perform his or her duties to their client in an honorable, professional and prudent manner. In essence, when a lawyer fails to perform in a manner that any other reasonable attorney would perform, then their "lack" of professionalism can be categorized as legal malpractice. If you believe you have fallen victim to legal malpractice, a Raleigh personal injury attorney can assist you with your important legal issue.
As attorneys, we understand both sides of the fence. We understand how difficult navigating through the complex legal system is; however, we also understand how other attorneys or law firms can be grossly negligent and therefore, cause undue harm to their clients and this simply is not acceptable. Our firm is compassionate and caring and we pick up the pieces where other law firms failed to provide their clients with honest, timely and dedicated service.
Logistics of Your Case
Sadly, there are many ways that a client can fall victim to legal malpractice. In many cases legal malpractice involves an attorney missing the statute of limitations for his or her client. When this happens the client loses their rights to file a claim against the legally liable party. This failure to file a claim in time can cost the injured victim tens of thousands of dollars over the years, if not more. Every state has statutes of limitations that apply to personal injury cases, whether they involve medical malpractice, or wrongful death or other types of lawsuits. Statutes of limitations are time limits in which lawsuits can be filed, if an attorney misses the crucial cut off, the client can lose their right to sue permanently.
At other times legal malpractice may entail conflicts of interest, charging excessive fees, substandard performance that causes undue economic harm to a client and many more.
