Types of Legal Malpractice: Improper Investigation
When you hire an attorney, you expect him or her to guide you through the legal process, fully investigate your case, and help you seek your desired results. Unfortunately and surprisingly often, lawyers fail to learn about the details of a case and investigate the charges, cause of the accident, or whatever specific details of the case need investigating.
If you have suffered financial loss or other damage due to your attorney's failure to investigate, you have legal options. My law practice represents people who have been wronged by an attorney who failed to conduct an adequate investigation. I have more than 15 years of experience in this area, and am committed to the idea that everyone has to play by the rules.
Improper Investigation by a Lawyer
When an attorney fails to conduct a proper investigation or pretrial discovery, the case is usually substantially harmed — if not completely lost. A lawyer may fail to properly investigate a case due to sheer laziness under the expectation that the case will settle. A lawyer may have inaccurately anticipated the time in which it takes to properly investigate a case. A lawyer may simply be inexperienced.
Whatever the reason, improper investigation by an attorney is unacceptable. Specific examples of improper investigation include:
- Failure to conduct a proper discovery
- Failure to get expert witnesses
- Failure to prepare witnesses
- Failure to prepare for trial
If your case was lost due to the actions of your lawyer, you may be eligible for significant compensation. While you may find it hard to trust another attorney, know that my practice is different. I make a living holding other lawyers accountable for their mistakes.
