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.
Missing the statute of limitations is a common reason for filing a legal malpractice suit. However, there are many other reasons that legal malpractice may have occurred.
