Here is an example of this kind of malpractice. If you get into a car accident, you have a certain number of years to sue the other driver. In Colorado, that time deadline is three years. What happens if you hire a lawyer to represent you and that lawyer fails to sue before the expiration of the three-year statute of limitations? Well, that lawyer then is negligent. Now, you have two years to bring a legal malpractice lawsuit against that lawyer. Please contact us immediately if this has happened to you.
