A: Lawyers, like other professionals such as accountants or doctors, have a duty to provide competent representation in accordance with the appropriate standard of care. In cases where a lawyer commits malpractice, the injured party/former client may be able to file a professional malpractice claim and recover for damages caused by the malpractice.

However, a crucial element to any professional liability claim is obtaining expert review by a lawyer who will review the case and determine whether the lawyer’s conduct fell below the standard of care of other lawyers in the same specialty. In order to obtain such a review, the injured party must speak to a lawyer to discuss the specifics of their case.
