The Impact Of Legal Malpractice Insurance On Your Claim
According to some estimates, only 60 percent of attorneys across the United States carry legal malpractice insurance. Lawyers in California are obligated to disclose whether they have professional liability insurance to their clients. However, even if they do have malpractice insurance, the policy may not cover fraud, theft or other intentional acts. When you hire an attorney, you have a right to ask if they carry malpractice insurance, as well as to inquire about the amount of coverage.

- The insurance company will assess an approximate value of your claim and set aside money to pay that claim in the event you’re successful.
