Legal Malpractice Lawsuit Concerning Auto Accident Case

This site discusses many grounds for filing a legal malpractice lawsuit over the handling of a personal injury case.  These reasons vary in nature, and some of the most common reasons are listed on the “Chicago Legal Malpractice Trial Lawyer” page, and further discussed elsewhere on the site.

The reasons underpinning legal malpractice are somewhat broad.  Perhaps the most well-known reason is the failure of a personal injury lawyer to meet deadlines, including the failure of the law firm to file a personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires.

Another example can be seen in a car accident lawsuit in Louisiana.  This legal malpractice case was discussed in the January 30, 2015 Louisiana Record article titled “Personal injury law firm faces legal malpractice lawsuit over alleged mishandling of auto accident cases.”  In this malpractice case, the underlying car accident happened on on April 24, 2011, and the legal malpractice claims against the lawyers is based on various claims as discussed in the article.

Legal Malpractice Case Involving A Personal Injury Lawsuit

As discussed throughout this site, legal malpractice lawsuits can be filed for a number of reasons.  In a typical legal malpractice case, a person will often seek to sue their lawyers if the lawyers have made a mistake that results in a substantial monetary loss to the person.  In the case of personal injury legal malpractice, a legal malpractice suit may seek to address an error that was made by lawyers in the handling of a personal injury suit that sought to get compensation for an accident injury or, in the case of a death, a wrongful death case.

A recent legal malpractice lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County.  The lawsuit is discussed in the Cook County Record article of December 28, 2015, titled “Client accuses two law firms of malpractice in personal injury case.”  Details of the allegations and grounds for the lawsuit are summarized in the article.  One of the claims was that the lawyers failed to file the personal injury lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitations.

As further discussed on this site, there are many potential causes of legal malpractice, especially as it pertains to legal malpractice concerning personal injury cases.

There was a recent Illinois lawsuit alleging legal malpractice that has been settled.  The underlying injury case involved injuries sustained on a cruise ship.

The legal malpractice lawsuit is discussed in the July 28, 2015 Madison Record article titled “$5M legal malpractice suit settled for undisclosed amount.”

An excerpt from the article:

According to the complaint, Reinhardt claims she hired the defendants to represent her in a lawsuit she intended to file against a passenger cruise ship on which she allegedly sustained injuries while working in September 1996.

She claims the defendants failed to conduct an accurate investigation into Reinhardt’s injuries and into her employer, the suit states.

“But for defendants’ negligence, lack of due diligence, failure to meet the prevailing standard of care and failure to perform as an attorney knowledgeable on Jones Act issues, plaintiff would not have lost her Jones Act negligence claim against her former employer and would have been entitled to damages including all remedies which the Jones Act negligence complaint against her employer would have afforded her,” the complaint alleges.

Additional details can be seen in various media sources, including the Madison Record article mentioned above.
