Error in Record Search

How can a lawyer commit malpractice through a public records search?

New Jersey Legal Malpractice Attorney

A lawyer can commit malpractice by conducting an erroneous public records search, or by failing to conduct a public records search. This includes, for example, errors that occur during a title search, a patent or trademark search, or a U.C.C. search.

In the first scenario, a lawyer conducts a public records search, and a particular item is not disclosed on the public record.

In the second scenario, the lawyer conducts a public records search, and overlooks a relevant item disclosed on the public record. For example, a significant judgment on a title report.

In the third scenario, the lawyer has simply failed to conduct a public records search in a case where a search should have been conducted.

An attorney’s failure in any of these scenarios may lead to a malpractice claim for the damages attributable to the oversight.
