Asta Law represented an injured electrician whose attorney failed to commence his client’s case within the statute of limitations. While working on a ladder at a construction site, the electrician was caused to fall when the ladder collapsed, resulting in serious injuries to the electrician’s neck and back which prevented him from returning to work. Asta Law brought a legal malpractice lawsuit against the electrician’s former attorney. The firm successfully proved that the electrician had a meritorious underlying labor law case for his accident and that he had a meritorious legal malpractice case. Asta Law obtained a 1.4 million dollar settlement from the malpractice insurance carrier for the electricians’ former attorney which compensated the electrician for his injuries, lost earnings, and medical bills.
