Pennsylvania Malpractice Claims Against Negligent Lawyers

To find out whether a disappointing legal outcome resulted from professional malpractice, contact an ARM Lawyer for a free consultation.
Pennsylvania legal malpractice claims are difficult for several reasons. You need to prove not only that your attorney violated an applicable standard of legal practice in your case, but also that your loss resulted from that particular violation.
For example, if your original claim involved a personal injury claim against someone else, you need to show that you probably would have won that case but for your original lawyer’s mistake. The trial attorneys of ARM Lawyers have the experience necessary not only to develop and present your legal malpractice case, but also to prove your right to compensation on the underlying personal injury claim.
Another obstacle in legal malpractice litigation has to do with proving the applicable standard of care that your previous lawyer violated. While missing an essential deadline like a statute of limitations is an obvious violation, other matters of professional negligence are not as cut and dried.
Did your previous lawyer work hard enough to find the evidence necessary to win your case? Did your lawyer engage qualified experts on an important matter of opinion? Did your lawyer irresponsibly or inadvertently waive an important right on your behalf? On questions such as these, Pennsylvania law requires expert testimony to support the claim that your previous counsel was in breach of an applicable standard of professional performance.
