You are working on a brief, and...
You are working on a brief, and the filing deadline is tomorrow. Suddenly your computer crashes, and your document is lost. The filing deadline is missed, and the suit dismissed. Whose fault is if? Yours. An earthquake collapses your office building, burying your entire office. Your document is lost. Whose fault is it? Ok, maybe not this one. But just about everything short of an earthquake is your fault. No ifs, no ands, no buts. Your fault. Every time. Law firms function on strict liability. If you touched a project, and anything goes wrong with that project, it is your fault. Causality is irrelevant.
