Establishing Legal Malpractice under Negligence

There are a few ways in which legal malpractice can occur. Some of the most common examples of legal malpractice include breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, or negligence. If your attorney failed to file paperwork by a certain deadline, this can be a form of negligence. In order to pursue a legal malpractice claim, you must first prove that an attorney committed legal malpractice under negligence.

When working to establish legal malpractice due to negligence, you must prove that your attorney:

  • Had a duty to provide you with reasonably competent representation
  • Violated this duty by acting carelessly, negligently, or in making a mistake
  • Caused harm and/or injury by failing to uphold his or her duty

Furthermore, you must show that the resulting harm or injury resulted in financial loss and you must prove that, had your attorney not breached his or her duty, you would have won the case for which you hired the attorney and successfully recovered damages from the defendant. In other words, if you would not have won your underlying case, you will likely not be able to take action against your attorney.
