Malpractice Avoidance: Missed Deadlines

Oddly enough, most malpractice claims in a litigation practice come at the beginning and the end of the case. The largest single cause of litigation malpractice claims is missed time deadlines (statutes of limitation, notice deadlines, etc.). Not far behind that is overlooking coverage and failing to make a claim against an insurance policy or other source of recovery. If you’re not really sure where all the potential coverage is, talk to someone who will know.
