Legal Malpractice Settlements

Blown Statute of Limitation leads to $350,000 Verdict

We represented a Plaintiff who had a slip and fall in Manhattan sustaining a broken hand and knee injury. Plaintiff had retained a Philadelphia attorney to represent her in bringing a claim against the City of New York. Unfortunately for our client, her prior lawyer was not familiar with New York law and he did not file the lawsuit within the applicable time frame and her claim was ultimately dismissed. Our client turned to us and we were able to file a legal malpractice action proving that but for the negligence of the Philadelphia attorney, she would have received a settlement or verdict in NYC. A Philadelphia jury awarded Plaintiff $350,000 for the lawyer’s legal malpractice.
