Jim Thomson successfully defended an attorney and law firm in an attorney malpractice suit arising from the representation of the plaintiff in two separate personal injury claims. The plaintiff brought suit against the attorney and law firm, alleging they were negligent in the handling of the plaintiff’s personal injury claims, including the acceptance of an offer relating to the first of the two motor vehicle accidents. The attorney and law firm argued the claims against them were barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The court agreed and held that the plaintiff failed to timely pursue her claim and the claims against the attorney and law firm were time-barred.
