Cassandra Torchia started this petition to Governor Lamont and
  1. My husband lost his father suddenly in 2013 due to medical negligence. He found an attorney to take on a medical malpractice/wrongful death case and 6 years in and unfortunately right before trial, his attorneys closed shop and left all of their clients without legal counsel. He, as well as all of the other clients of this lawyer found out that the attorneys office did not have insurance, so none of them could bring a legal malpractice case against the attorneys office. Not only are attorneys not required to have malpractice insurance, but they aren’t required to tell clients that they don’t have it.  My husbands case is now being dismissed due to lack of counsel and there is nothing he can do. All of the defendants involved are going to get away with their negligence which caused his fathers death, as well as the attorney is getting away with causing my husband severe emotional distress. We are all required to carry insurance to drive a car and own a home etc, as well as doctors are required to have insurance to cover damages they cause. Why should attorneys not be required to carry legal malpractice insurance to cover damages they cause?? Please sign this petition and pass it on and hopefully if we get enough signatures, we can get this law changed and require all attorneys to have legal malpractice insurance.
