Legal Malpractice is a breach of fiduciary duty, or breach of contract by a lawyer that causes a loss of compensation for a client. To receive compensation for a legal malpractice claim the injured party must prove that the acts of the previous attorney were not just the result of poor representation, but also the negligence of the attorney. Legal Malpractice occurs when a law firm acts in their own interest instead of their clients’. A claim for legal malpractice may also occur when a lawyer or law firm breaches the contract they have signed with their client for whatever reason. The most common breach of duty is when an attorney does not file a claim with the courts within the statute of limitations; this negligence is related to the client’s loss of action.
If you have been involved in a lawsuit and lost your claim because of the legal malpractice of an attorney you may be entitled to a cash award. Often, plaintiffs lose cash settlements because of the fault of their attorney. When this happens plaintiffs are able to seek legal representation to receive cash compensation on such losses.

What is a Legal Malpractice Claim?
Attorneys are not perfect and often make mistakes. Occasionally attorneys commit legal malpractice, which is a breach of duty to their client. The attorney breaches his duty by not providing service above the accepted level in the legal profession. Sometimes an attorney commits serious errors that in turn damage the case and cause a less favorable outcome and on some occasions the case is lost entirely. When this happens plaintiffs may have the right to receive compensation through a legal malpractice lawsuit.
Grounds for Legal Malpractice Claims
There are many reasons why an attorney may be liable to a client for breach of duty or malpractice. Here are some of the more common situations:
Missed Statute of Limitations
On some occasions even the best cases can be dismissed due to an attorney simply not filing the case within the allowed period of time or statute of limitations. This is one of the most common reasons for legal malpractice lawsuits. Law firms are responsible for calendaring these time periods and making sure that they take appropriate actions within these periods. When attorneys are not aware of such statutes and neglect to file cases within the allotted time period they have breached their duty to their client and may be liable for lost compensation.
Conflict of Interest by an Attorney
When an attorney is representing a plaintiff in any type of legal action or lawsuit, the attorney must make the client a high priority. Attorneys must always have the best interests in mind regarding their client’s lawsuits. Sometimes this is not always the case and a breach of duty takes place in the form of a conflict of interest. This conflict of interest may cause a lawsuit to be compromised or entirely lost resulting in a legitimate legal malpractice lawsuit.
The process for legal malpractice lawsuits can take several years. The plaintiff must prove that if the negligence did not occur, the case would have been won. Often, plaintiff’s lives are disrupted by having a lawsuit of this type and find themselves needing capital to meet daily living expenses.
