If your lawyer failed to file on time, that is something you should read about. Filing on time is very important, and if your lawyer has failed to file on time proper paperwork, you may have forfeited your case forever. However, it depends on the type of filing it was and the court and many factors.
Generally, when a lawyer failed to file on time, bad things happen. If the lawyer failed to file the complaint on time and the statute of limitations has expired, it may mean that you forfeited your case and will no longer be able to sue for that specific legal matter. However, missing other type of filing might be less severe, but still a major cause for concern.
There are a few things you should do if you truly believe that your attorney or lawyer has somehow forgot, failed, or improperly filed your paperwork. Because if a lawyer failed to file proper paperwork of a lawsuit in a timely fashion, your case will most likely be totally dismissed by the court.
