Why Do Attorneys Need Protection?

While offering legal advice and defense, unfortunately lawyers aren’t immune to making professional errors. Lawyers are sued for malpractices of all kinds by their clients. In fact, four out of five lawyers will be sued for professional negligence during their lifetime of their career. The vast majority of these claims, or at least 70%, are filed against small firms or private practices.

Professional misconduct:

Administrative errors:

This includes losing important paperwork and other documents that could be extremely costly mistakes for both attorneys and their clients.

Missed deadlines:

When attorneys fail to submit lawsuits on time, it can cause the court to dismiss the case entirely, which can be an extremely costly mistake in many regards.

Breach of confidentiality:

Also known as disclosing personal/private data or information to a third party without the client’s consent.

Negligence:

This includes failure on the attorney’s part to conduct an adequate investigation, submit important court documents, or offer correct professional advice, etc.
