Causes for Legal Malpractice Cases
The most common ways that legal ethics and malpractice cases arise are when an attorney causes harm to a client because of negligence, a breach of contract or a breach of fiduciary duty:
- Negligence occurs when an attorney commits an error that no professional legal representative should make apart from poor legal strategy, or simple carelessness. A common example of this is when an attorney does not get a legal document into a court on time which results in harm to a client. An attorney who accepts a case guarantees that he is able to handle the case at least as well as the average qualified attorney who practices that type of law. Failure to provide legal services up to that standard is legal malpractice.
- Breach of Contract may be grounds for a legal malpractice case when an attorney breaches a contract that they have signed with a client.
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty is when a lawyer acts in their own best interest instead of those of their clients. An example of this could be when a lawyer bills a client for hours not worked.
