Why Attorneys Get Sued When They’ve Done Nothing Wrong
Time and again we see attorneys get sued by their clients when the attorneys did not commit malpractice. It is not uncommon for allegations of malpractice to be brought against an attorney when the attorney does not believe (s)he was hired to complete the specific task at issue. All too often, unfortunately, the attorney either
has no engagement letter at all or has one that lacks detail about the scope of the specific undertaking. To us as insurance professionals, these types of claims are
heartbreaking (contrary to common belief, claims adjusters are human and do have hearts!) because they are so easily avoidable.
