As discussed elsewhere throughout this website, there are a variety of factors that may be grounds for filing a successful legal malpractice lawsuit. One such factor is the failure of a lawyer to meet applicable deadlines, including the failure to file a personal injury lawsuit before the expiration of the statute of limitations. Other such factors are discussed on the Chicago Legal Malpractice Trial Lawyer page.
One example of an alleged missed statute of limitations deadline is seen in a personal injury legal malpractice lawsuit as discussed in The MadisonRecord.com article of June 2, 2015 titled “Legal malpractice lawsuit filed against St. Louis firm over statute of limitations expiration.”
The article describes a lawsuit filed in St. Clair County Circuit court. The underlying personal injury accident involved a man, James L. Alexander of Belleville, who allegedly fell into a hole dug on his property by the St. Clair County Township Sewer Department. He hired a legal firm to pursue compensation for his accident injury.
The personal injury legal malpractice claim is discussed within the article. An excerpt:
Alexander claims he consulted with Abramson and hired him to represent him in a lawsuit against the sewer department, the suit states. However, Alexander alleges Abramson failed to file the action within the one-year statute of limitation.
