Statute of Limitations Errors

The statute of limitations is the length of time during which a lawsuit can be brought in a particular matter. These deadlines should be well-known to any attorney, and as such, they are inflexible. If you have suffered damages due to your lawyer failing to file a lawsuit before the expiration of the statute of limitations, you may have a case for legal malpractice. Consult with an experienced Alpharetta attorney who specializes in legal malpractice lawsuits and statute of limitations errors.

Negligent Failure to File Within the Statute of Limitations Can Amount to Malpractice

Failure to file a lawsuit within the time allotted by the statute of limitations means you have lost the opportunity to recover damages on your claim. You may be able to win a legal malpractice claim for this type of negligent action, provided you can prove the following:

  • Duty: As the client, your lawyer has a duty to perform his or her job in a competent manner. Failing to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations can be construed as incompetence.
  • Breach: You must show that the attorney was negligent in missing the deadline, not that he or she missed it through mistake or some other excusable reason.
  • Causation: You need to show that failure to file the lawsuit before the expiration of the statute of limitations caused you damages.
  • Damages: You must show that you suffered an actual loss, financial or otherwise, in order to receive compensation.
