When an attorney fails to adequately plan for all of the contingencies in a case or when the attorney's strategy is clearly wrong based on the facts and law involved in a particular matter, his or her actions can end up hurting the client. If you have been harmed by such strategic or planning errors, know that you have options. Through a legal malpractice claim, you can hold the negligent attorney responsible for the damage that he or she caused while handling a case on your behalf.
How Do Planning Errors Occur?
Planning errors often lead to legal mistakes that can lose a case, prevent you from pursuing a claim, decrease the amount of compensation received via settlement or verdict and cause other harm. These errors are often the result of inadequate investigation or lack of knowledge on the part of an attorney. Frequently, legal malpractice in the form of strategic and planning errors occurs in matters involving insurance coverage or tax implications, two areas of law that are exceedingly complex and should be addressed only by experienced professionals.
