- Q: How long do I have to file a legal malpractice case?
A: Generally, you only have one year from the date you knew or should have known of the malpractice. But, as with all limitations questions, this date is difficult to determine with certainty. For example, if the negligence was in a case involving litigation, you have one year from the date the damages are "fixed and non-speculative." This may mean the statute doesn't even start to run until several years after the malpractice occurs. It is always best to speak with an attorney experienced in legal malpractice.
