A legal malpractice lawsuit is based on an allegation that a lawyer negligently performed legal services on behalf of a client in an underlying claim or legal matter.
Some of the most common ways a lawyer might mishandle a case is by:
- Missing a statute of limitation
- Failing to properly advise a client about the details of a settlement
- Failing to prosecute a case and having it dismissed, and
- A conflict of interest between the lawyer and the client
