Personal Injury Malpractice
Tampa Personal Injury Malpractice Attorneys
Clients trust their lawyers to offer competent service to those who are wronged or injured by others, exhibiting the highest ethical standards at all times. Unfortunately, in a minority of cases, this trust can be misplaced, and attorneys may seem more concerned about getting more clients than serving their clients’ interests effectively. When such legal malpractice occurs, the client who is wronged can feel unsure where to turn. If you feel you have been the victim of legal malpractice, we encourage you to seek out an experienced Tampa Legal Malpractice Attorney who understands the intricacies of legal malpractice representation.
Legal malpractice occurs when a person suffers damage or injury due to an attorney’s negligence. Legal malpractice comes in different forms, such as the lawyer missing the deadlines governing when to file the lawsuit or important paperwork once the case is underway. If the case is dismissed due to the lawyer’s inactivity, that inactivity may well prove to be another form of legal malpractice. Other actions – or failures to act – on the part of your lawyer may also rise to the level of legal malpractice.
If you have been hurt financially by a lawyer’s negligence, do not wait; like other lawsuits, claims for legal malpractice are subject to statutes of limitations that limit the period of time within which you have to file suit. Our Florida Legal Malpractice lawyers are always willing to talk with you about your potential case, and we will work hard to serve you effectively. Lawyers have a fiduciary obligation always to protect the interests of their clients. It is a breach of that duty if the attorney places his or her interests above that of the client or misses the statute of limitations leaving the client without any legal remedy.
At Wagner McLaughlin, we speak up for the injured by handling legal malpractice claims. Though we do not relish suing other colleagues in the legal profession, we believe that all lawyers should be held accountable for their negligence. We help clients recover what they have lost, and we hold lawyers accountable when an attorney’s negligent errors have caused damage in your life.
