Every year, approximately 70,000 Canadians experience serious but preventable injury because of medical malpractice. You trust your doctors with your health and wellbeing – and their mistakes put your life at risk. The serious and potentially fatal consequences of a medical malpractice warrant your legal action.
Most medical malpractice cases involve a doctor’s negligence. A doctor can be accused of negligence when injury or harm is caused by their failure to perform the standards expected of their profession. This might involve the failure to provide adequate treatment, a mistake they made during your treatment or procedure, as well as a misdiagnosis. Medical malpractice can also involve a doctor’s refusal to treat you based on discriminatory grounds.
A successful medical malpractice claim requires that you prove beyond a doubt that your injury or illness was a direct result of your doctor’s error. While you may think that the Canadian healthcare system works to protect patients, the law actually discourages patients from suing their doctor for medical errors. That’s why you need an experienced lawyer to lead you in your medical malpractice claim.
