Human errors and mistakes are inevitable in any profession, however, if you make an error or mistake as an attorney, and that mistake somehow damages your client financially, you can almost certainly expect to be sued for the error. Legal malpractice (also referred to as Errors & Omissions) claims are common, and they can be costly.
If you have a small law firm or you are a sole practitioner in Massachusetts, you know that the rapid growth of new technology and new business models means a lot of new opportunities for Massachusetts lawyers. However, we have heard from our customers in that growing technology and new business models are creating tough competition and economic pressure.
Because of increasing economic pressure, it is quite possible for an attorney to make an error that would cause the firm’s client to incur damages. This could eventually turn into a legal malpractice lawsuit and those can be incredibly costly for lawyers. That is why it is very important for all lawyers in Massachusetts to keep their practices covered with professional liability insurance coverage.
