In Indiana, lawyers are required to exercise reasonable care in the representation of their clients. When lawyers fail to meet their obligations, the results can be disastrous for the client.
Indiana legal malpractice claims frequently arise from a lawyer's failure to timely file a claim on behalf of the client. Indiana law imposes strict statutes of limitations for the filing of legal claims. If the claims are not filed within the time imposed by the applicable statute of limitations, the claim is forever lost.
Legal malpractice claims in Indiana may also arise from the lawyer's failure to advise the client of all of the legal ramifications of a course of action, or to let the client know of his representation of parties whose interests are adverse to the client's. A lawyer's mishandling of the client's finances may also give rise to a legal malpractice action in Indiana.
