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.
