As an experienced Media PA Legal Malpractice Attorney, I often explain to customers the differences between an intentional wrong act and a negligent act.
- It’s important to distinguish between situations in which an attorney made an error and those where he or she intentionally took a wrongful action.
- Because intentional wrongful acts reflect an attorney’s ethical standards, sanctions may be imposed by the disciplinary board.
- Negligence simply indicates that the attorney made a mistake and don’t rise to the level of an ethical breach
- Negligence cases are usually covered by insurance, but intentional wrongful acts are almost never covered.
