Reputable Legal Counsel for Michigan Residents
The successful practice of personal injury law involves a specific area of law requiring advanced knowledge and experience. Some personal injury cases can be so complex that it would be irresponsible for attorneys without a certain level of know-how and grit to try and tackle on their own. In fact, attorneys are ethically bound to avoid working on a case that is beyond their background qualifications.
Under Rule 1.1 of the Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct (MRPC), a lawyer owes a duty of competence to clients. When an attorney’s breach of this duty harms the legal rights of their client, the attorney may be liable for malpractice.
A lawyer’s duty of competence under Rule 1.1 of the MRPC includes:
- Handling legal matters which a lawyer knows or should know they are not qualified to handle, without associating with a competent attorney;
- Handling a legal matter without adequately preparing for it; or
- Neglecting a legal matter entrusted to the attorney.
When a client needs an experienced personal injury attorney, their attorney has an ethical obligation to ensure that their client has competent representation. An attorney can discharge this duty if they associate with a more experienced lawyer.
"You are doing such a great job. You get all my class action referrals."
