What Is Considered Malpractice Under Louisiana Law?

Legal malpractice is similar to medical malpractice in that it’s a situation where the attorney falls below the standard of care of other attorneys practicing the same type of law in the same area. Attorneys, however, do not have to go through a medical malpractice review panel like doctors do before a client can file a suit. Learn More

Examples Of Legal Malpractice Claims Against Louisiana Attorneys

If an attorney is negligent in their duties and responsibilities towards you, and this causes you substantial harm, it can be worth filing a legal malpractice lawsuit against them. Such cases are most common when attorneys miss important deadlines, such as failing to file a claim in time or failing to enter expert testimony in time for a trial.

For example, in one Louisiana case, Wimberly Law Firm’s legal malpractice lawyer secured a $1 million dollar settlement for a man who suffered a stroke in the emergency room whose attorney failed to file the claim on time to recover the damages he had suffered due to the health complications.

Such negligent and costly errors can occur at all levels of the legal system, from local courts to federal cases, and Wimberly Law Firm is proud to stand behind individuals and businesses whose lawyers and attorneys have failed them and committed legal malpractice.

Legal Malpractice

When someone in Louisiana hires a lawyer to help them with a legal issue, they expect the lawyer to adhere to code of ethics to clients as established by the state government. In fact, the lawyer has a legal obligation to comply with the code of ethics. That includes representing clients to the best of their ability, maintaining confidentiality regarding each case, explaining legal fees, and communicating with clients in a timely manner. If your attorney’s actions caused you to lose your case or suffer a financial loss, you may have grounds for legal malpractice.

A legal malpractice case can be complex and requires the expertise of a legal malpractice lawyer. You need to gather enough evidence to show that your attorney was negligent or did something illegal. A professional legal malpractice lawyer can evaluate your situation to determine whether you have grounds for legal malpractice.

Personal Injury

A personal injury is the result of an incident where someone is hurt through no fault of their own. Personal injury cases involve a variety of mishaps and are fairly common. Someone is injured and another individual or entity is responsible for the harm.

If you suffer an injury due to someone’s actions or negligence you may need the help of a personal injury lawyer to recover compensation for your injuries, loss of income, and pain and suffering. There are strict limits on the time you have to file a claim as well as economic caps on damages. Preparing such a personal injury lawsuit requires gathering countless medical reports from multiple health care professionals, insurance reports, witness statements, police reports, and a comprehensive investigation of the scene of the accident. Expert witnesses and accident reconstructionists may be called in to present testimony. A personal injury attorney can prepare a solid personal injury case should choose to file a lawsuit.

Slip And Fall

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, at any time. While many of these accidents happen at work, they could also happen in your home, at a recreational facility, a business, or even while you are on vacation.

Sometimes a fall is the result of slipping on a wet floor or icy sidewalk or tripping on uneven pavement or stairs. The injuries can be severe and require medical treatment, absence from work, lost wages, and death.

If you are injured in a fall, it is to your benefit to consult with a slip and fall lawyer to discuss whether any legal options are available to you. You may be able to obtain compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. It is important to discuss your accident and injuries with a qualified Mandeville lawyer who can explain the time constraints and Louisiana’s comparative negligence clause regarding slip and fall accidents in Louisiana.

Frequently Asked Questions

It very well might be! Missing deadlines can be extremely costly and can sometimes even prevent you from obtaining any damages at all. However, several conditions must be met to qualify the case as a malpractice.

Every case is different. To find out if you have a valid malpractice lawsuit, ask our Louisiana legal malpractice attorney in a quick, free, and confidential consultation by calling (985) 200-8466 or scheduling an appointment online.

A bar complaint is a serious step. It is a tool you only want to use as a last resort. The ideal outcome for most legal malpractice lawsuits in Louisiana will be a settlement, but the opposing attorney has no incentive to settle if you’ve already done your worst.

The threat of filing a bar complaint against an attorney can be an extremely effective motivator for them to settle for a fair and reasonable amount. Your legal malpractice attorney can advise you when it is time to file a bar complaint.

In order to prove a malpractice claim against a Louisiana lawyer, you will need evidence of three things:

  1. First, that you had a client-attorney relationship with this lawyer. A signed contract is the best form of evidence for this.
  2. Second, the lawyer behaved negligently in their duties toward you. They must have failed to meet the appropriate standard of care, and doing so must have caused one or more serious errors, such as missing a filing deadline.
  3. Third, proof that the attorney’s negligence caused you harm, often in terms of the monetary value their mistakes cost you or your claim.
