What could it cost you if you don't carry the right legal malpractice insurance?
The debate over mandatory professional liability insurance for lawyers continues across the country. There are some state courts that require attorneys to maintain professional liability coverage, some that require client disclosure if no coverage exists, and some that remain silent. Many clients are not aware that this is the case, and assume to their detriment that they will have access to compensation in the event a mistake is made. To the legal profession’s credit, most lawyers in private practice recognize malpractice litigation as an ever present threat and understand the benefits of maintaining malpractice insurance. If you're still on the fence about the importance of carrying lawyers' professional liability insurance or are not sure how much coverage you should purchase, here are some examples of the costs of not carrying the right insurance:
Approximately 4-5% of lawyers practicing in the U.S. will face an allegation of malpractice in any given year.
Claims can easily take 6 to 24 months to resolve.
Defense costs on a claim can often break the $100,000 mark before you know it.
The bottom line is that purchasing legal malpractice insurance is the right thing to do. Missteps can and do occur on client matters for all kinds of reasons. If and when they do, impacted clients can be significantly harmed. The purchase of an appropriate level of malpractice coverage is the best way you can protect your clients and your firm should a serious misstep ever occur.
