Am I able to sue if my attorney lost my file?
When an attorney loses a client’s file or evidence, this is often due to the fact that they are acting carelessly, lack organization, or have hugely miscommunicated with their client. In the future, it is best to retain the services of a firm that has an electronic database where your case will be filed and accessible when you need it. To avoid a file from being lost, your attorney should remain in constant communication with you through each step of the legal process. If this does not occur, this might mean that they are not regularly examining your file, which could lead to your file or evidence being lost.
