A statute of limitations is a deadline under the law in which a party must timely file a lawsuit. If a party fails to file before the statute of limitations expires, then they no longer have a case against the party that harmed them. When lawyers fail to meet this deadline, they can be sued for legal malpractice. If your lawyer missed a statute of limitations or other deadline, consider representation from a law firm that has been helping people for over 50 years.

Attorney's Failure to File
When you hire an attorney, you expect them to file in a timely manner and meet all necessary deadlines. Otherwise, your case can be completely ruined, and your pursuit for legal relief fails due to incompetency by your attorney. You may have a legal malpractice case if your attorney:
- Failed to file before the statute of limitation ran out
- Failed to meet court deadlines
- Failed to file papers
- Failed to sue the right party
- Failed to obtain all available insurance
There are also key deadlines to meet if you are suing various government agencies, entities, or boards. This involves an understanding of technical rules when suing the government. However, not every attorney has this knowledge. Our personal injury attorneys have an understanding of these technical rules since our firm focuses primarily on personal injury and civil litigation.
