After being injured in a motor vehicle accident, our client reached out to his local neighborhood attorney looking for help. The local attorney he hired took the case yet failed to file the lawsuit on time. When the lawyer eventually filed the claim, the case was not only dismissed, but he failed to let our client know. Meanwhile, our client was dealing with the physical pain of his injuries and the stress of mounting medical bills.
Hesitant with the legal system but still needing advice on how to proceed, our client sought out attorneys with a reputation for being honest and trustworthy. He found Goodman Acker, P.C.
Our attorneys were able to determine that, despite not being able to make any additional claims against his auto insurance company, our client had a claim for legal malpractice against his former attorney for failing to provide competent representation.
Goodman Acker immediately got to work and filed a lawsuit against the former attorney on our client’s behalf. With early negotiations and solid evidence, Goodman Acker was able to recover from the former attorney each of our client’s outstanding medical bills, multiple years of wage loss benefits, reimbursement for the people that had to care for our client while he was injured, and additional compensation for our client’s pain and suffering, all of which should have been paid by our client’s auto insurance company if the original lawyer he hired had done his job. Because we were able to present such solid evidence, we were able to settle the legal malpractice claim quickly, without a trial and without years of litigation. We knew our client had already endured years of financial hardship and helping him get the justice and money he deserved, and in a timely manner was important to Goodman Acker.
