Suing Your Lawyer for Failure to File a Claim in Georgia

Failure to file a claim can occur due to negligent filings, lack of knowledge of the law or failure to know the appropriate statute of limitations. You may be able to win a legal malpractice claim provided you can prove the following:

  • Duty: As the client, your lawyer has a duty to represent you up to the standards required by the rules of professional conduct.
  • Breach: You charged your attorney with filing a claim against a third party, and he or she failed to do so in a way that amounted to misconduct.
  • Causation: The failure of your lawyer to file the claim must be the cause of the damages you suffered.
  • Damages: You must show that you suffered an actual loss, financial or otherwise, that a judgment in your favor will repair.
