Legal Malpractice Case Story
Our clients had a birth injury medical malpractice case dismissed by a court because their previous lawyer had not filed the case within the statutory requirement of five years. They alleged that their previous lawyer had been negligent and we agreed. Our arguments effectively convinced the defendant’s insurance carrier to settle the case for the full value of the defendant’s $1 million policy limit.
Result: $1 million policy limits settlement.
Legal malpractice, as is true of medical malpractice cases, are complex and our law firm is experienced in understanding the various errors or omissions that may have caused the malpractice, as well as the appropriate compensation based on damages.
