Missed Statute of Limitations
We represent people and businesses that have suffered when their attorneys acted negligently.Personal injury, breach of contract claims, commercial litigation, estate litigation and civil litigation claims have deadlines, or statutes of limitations that must be followed. These deadlines are vital to any action, they are the date by which a claim must be filed, If an attorney misses these deadlines, a claim will not be considered, and a client gives up any right to recoverrequirements damages. Many times attorneys are required to file appropriate motions or other filing requirements according to specific deadlines. A missed deadline or a missed filing could result in legal malpractice
Missing a filing deadline results in losing your opportunity to claim damages
Cohn & Associates believes attorneys should take their responsibility for statutes of limitations and deadlines seriously. In every legal malpractice case you must prove “a case within a case”. First, you must prove that you would have won the underlying case. In many cases that means that you would have collected a damage award or financial settlement. Then you must prove that your attorney’s failure to meet the deadlines required, caused the loss of an award or settlement.
Cohn & Associates handles every part of the legal malpractice claim, from initial interview, investigation, research, filing a complaint, discovery, through negotiated settlement or jury trial. Email us or call for an initial consulatation about a missed statute of limitations claim against your former attorney. We have helped many wronged clients recover damages and settlements from their prior attorneys and their prior attorneys’ insurance companies. We can help you.
