Pennsylvania Legal Malpractice Claims

Legal Malpractice claims against attorneys are on the rise. There are many forms of legal malpractice:

  • Failing to file suit before the expiration of the statute of limitations
  • Incorrect title searches in real estate transactions
  • Failure to respond to Summary Judgment motions
  • Failure to hire proper experts to pursue a case

To win a legal malpractice case against an attorney, a plaintiff must generally prove:

  • The existence of an attorney-client relationship
  • Acts constituting negligence or breach of contract
  • That these acts caused the plaintiff to lose the case
  • Without the legal malpractice, the plaintiff would have been successful in the underlying action.

If I want to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, is the only option to sue my doctor? What if he or she was not the only person who made a mistake and caused my injury?

Pennsylvania medical malpractice law allows any health care provider to be found responsible in a personal injury claim when their conduct falls below a certain standard of competent medical practice. This means you have the right to pursue a claim against not only doctors but also the following:

  • Nurses
  • Lab technicians
  • Hospitals
  • Ambulance companies
  • Pharmacies
  • Any other staff members involved in rendering the negligent care that left you injured
