Failure to Hire Expert

3 posts in this topic

The case in question was a breach of fiduciary duty case.  The Plaintiff hired 2 expert witnesses both to prove breach and to prove damages.  Defendant attorney stated he does not see the need for an expert in response to client asking "do we need expert witnesses"?  In addition, Defendant attorney told client no need to review expert's report as "he may not be allowed to testify."  Defendant ended up with large judgment against him.

 

Was Defendant attorney's actions malpractice and below the standard of care?

That's the kind of question the Defendant should be asking of a malpractice attorney.

 

Defendant is foolish to expect an answer from strangers on the internet who know nothing about the case nor anything about what the experts testified to.

We have no conceivable way of knowing based on the scant information provided.

 

What do you think the answer is, and why?
