If you do believe you have a legal malpractice case, you need an experienced a skilled attorney to help you. Legal malpractice cases can be very difficult to win, because of the burden of proof. In a legal malpractice case, you need to prove the following:
- Duty: The attorney accused of legal malpractice had a duty to serve this particular client. This usually means that the attorney and client willfully entered into a contract outlying the terms of the legal service.
- Breach: The attorney breached this contract by refusing services, acting negligently, or failing to perform duties essential to the success of the client's case.
- Causation: This negligence or wrongful act did cause the client to lose his or her case or settle for an amount far below the case's actual value.
- Damages: The legal malpractice by the lawyers or lawyer, subsequent loss of the case, or subsequent receipt of smaller settlement resulted in significant financial losses for the client.
It can be hard to prove all of those four steps in a legal malpractice case, but an experienced malpractice attorney from our firm may be able to help you.
