Legal Help For Legal Malpractice Victims
Personal injury attorneys owe their clients a high standard of professional care. Attorneys who do not meet these standards can cause their clients to suffer additional damages or prevent their clients from being adequately compensated. If you have questions or need assistance from a reputable legal team that can handle legal malpractice issues related to personal injury cases, you can turn to Leeseberg Tuttle.
Founding partner Gerry Leeseberg is a board-certified trial advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Our team has more than 75 years of collective experience practicing law, and together we have recovered some of the highest settlements and awards in Ohio’s history for medical malpractice and personal injury cases.
Understanding Legal Malpractice In Ohio
Failure to achieve a satisfactory outcome does not necessarily indicate professional negligence on the part of an attorney. However, legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer’s failure to properly represent a client causes harm to a client. Some common examples of legal malpractice include a lawyer’s failure to:
- Properly and thoroughly investigate your case
- File a lawsuit within the required time limit (statute of limitations)
- Meet court deadlines
- File the proper documents
In Ohio, plaintiffs must file a legal malpractice lawsuit within one year of the date that you discover or should have discovered your attorney’s wrongful behavior. In 2021, the 134th General Assembly passed Senate Bill 13, which grants a four-year statute of repose alongside the statute of limitations. This means there is an absolute deadline to file a legal malpractice claim within four years of the negligence, regardless of when you discovers the attorney’s negligence.
