Legal Malpractice Lawyers In Terre Haute, IN
LEGAL NEGLIGENCE, LEGAL MALPRACTICE AND PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY
Legal malpractice may arise from an attorney’s misconduct or failure to use adequate levels of care, skill, or diligence in the performance of his duties, and occurs if he/she commits an error, omission, or breach of duty to his/her client that results in a negative legal outcome or monetary loss for the client in a claim on which the client would have otherwise prevailed.
Attorney malpractice can take many forms. You may have grounds for a lawsuit if your attorney gives you improper legal advice, prepares documents incorrectly, fails to file a complaint or other documents, pursues excessive litigation at your expense, mishandles funds, or commits a breach of attorney-client privilege, to name a few examples.
If you have sustained losses due to a lawyer’s negligence, it is crucial to seek the advice of an experienced legal malpractice attorney as soon as possible to preserve your rights. You will have a set time frame in which to pursue a case. In Indiana, the statute of limitations for bringing a legal malpractice claim is two (2) years. While there are certain exceptions to the two-year limitation period based on a client’s discovery of the attorney’s negligence, a delay in pursing your claim could result in loss of your right to file suit.
