Legal Malpractice

When most people hear the term malpractice, they think of negligent doctors, hospitals, or other healthcare practitioners. But there are in fact a number of different forms of malpractice. For example, one form is known as legal malpractice.

Lawyers, just like doctors, take an oath to act in the best interest of clients. When a lawyer does not act in the best interest of his or her client, he or she may be sued for legal malpractice.

Types of Legal Malpractice

There are many ways in which a lawyer may engage in activities that are not in the best interest of his or her client. Some common forms of legal malpractice include:

  • Overcharging for time or failure to produce evidence that the time the client was charged for was actually spent on his or her case
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Negligence such as forgetting to file court papers on time, which may severely hurt a client’s case
  • Breach of contract by an attorney

Attorneys must be held to the same standards as other professionals. If you have been a victim of a negligent or reckless attorney, you may want to learn more about your legal options.
