Legal Malpractice Lawyer
We place an enormous amount of trust in attorneys to handle issues that have major consequences on our lives and our futures.
Sometimes lawyers make major errors or fail to take critical actions. When those types of things happen, it can lead to a very bad outcome in a legal case which may cost you significantly.
Legal malpractice and lawyer malpractice are terms used to describe a situation where a lawyer has damaged a client by a negligent action or lack of action. Every lawyer in Ohio is required to exercise the degree of care, skill, and diligence that a lawyer of ordinary skill and knowledge commonly possesses and exercises. If he or she does not exercise that level of care, he or she may be guilty of legal malpractice.
Just because you lost your case, does not mean the attorney committed legal malpractice. A victim of legal malpractice must prove the attorney acted in a manner that no other reasonable attorney would have acted if they were in that same situation. A person suing for lawyer malpractice must demonstrate that “but for” the conduct of his or her attorney, the outcome of the case would have been different.
If an Ohio lawyer has mishandled your case, you may be entitled to receive monetary compensation from that attorney. In fact, attorneys in Ohio are required to have malpractice insurance to cover these types of situations, just like physicians are required to carry malpractice insurance.
