West Virginia Legal Negligence in Personal Injury Claims
Under West Virginia law, legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer fails to exercise the knowledge, skill, and ability ordinarily possessed and exercised by fellow members of the legal profession in similar circumstances. In other words, a lawyer must provide professional services to the client of a quality no less than that practiced by his fellow lawyers.
Just because a lawyer fails to perform a duty owing to a client does not mean that the client automatically has a valid legal malpractice claim.
