$250,000 Settlement | Summit County
Mr. Doe was represented by AZ Law Firm in pursuing a medical negligence claim based on the failure to diagnose a heart attack. While representing Mr. Doe, AZ learned that the statute of limitations may have expired on his medical negligence claim but failed to timely file a lawsuit against the previous lawyer who was responsible for the statute of limitations expiring. As a result, Mr. Doe’s statute of limitations for legal malpractice expired. Mr. Doe brought suit against AZ for failing to timely file the legal malpractice claim and ultimately agreed to settle his claims against AZ for $250,000.
