About Legal Malpractice in Arkansas
Legal malpractice is a serious issue that requires expert advice and guidance. If you think you have been a victim of legal malpractice, you need to contact an experienced legal malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
Legal malpractice occurs when an attorney mishandles a case, either on purpose or out of negligence, and causes damages to his or her client. For example, the attorney’s action may cause the client to lose his or her case, lose the ability to sue or incur a specific financial loss. Not every instance in which an attorney makes a mistake will qualify as legal malpractice. To win a legal malpractice case, you must be able to show:
- A valid attorney-client relationship
- Proof of the attorney’s breach of duty to provide competent representation
- That the attorney’s actions caused damages
Common examples of incidents that lead to legal malpractice lawsuits include an attorney failing to apply the law appropriately, meet filing deadlines, return phone calls or manage a client’s financial accounts properly.
Filing a Lawsuit
If you believe you have been a victim of legal malpractice, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the attorney responsible and recover compensation. In some cases, legal malpractice may also cause the attorney to face criminal prosecution or action from the State Bar in addition to a civil lawsuit.
Determining whether you have a valid claim against an attorney can be complicated. If you are considering action against an attorney for malpractice, an experienced legal malpractice attorney can help you build a case and maximize your chances of success in court.
