If a legal situation arises, most people will turn to a legal professional for advice and assistance. When you hire an attorney, there is a good faith understanding that both parties will abide by the contract you have. There is a consistent standard of conduct that attorneys are held to, and when a lawyer violates this standard, he or she can be held legally responsible.
Simply losing your case does not constitute legal malpractice. However, if you believe you may have a legal misconduct case, your best bet is to find additional reliable legal information.
Do I Have an Attorney Malpractice Case?
If you think your attorney has made serious errors that could constitute malpractice, your best bet is to discuss your concerns with a legal malpractice attorney. It can be challenging to win a malpractice case with an attorney, and is extremely difficult to handle on your own.
Malpractice occurs when a lawyer takes actions that most other lawyers would not have taken, or fails to take action when most other lawyers would have. Just because your attorney failed to win your case does not mean that he or she is guilty of legal malpractice in Colorado.
In order to successfully sue a lawyer for malpractice, you and your new attorney must meet the following four criteria.
Legal malpractice may include things like making a decision or settling your case without your consent, spending your retainer on anything other than your legal case, or failing to take action or do what the attorney agreed to do for your case.
How Can a Malpractice Attorney Help with My Case?
Trusting a malpractice lawyer with your legal issues may seem like the most risky move you can make following a bad experience with your previous attorney. However, when you initiate a case against an attorney, you know that he or she will have the best representation possible.
