Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Toronto Areas of Focus

Our team is experienced in all areas of medical malpractice. Our main focus areas include birth-related injury, pediatric injury, brain injury, and spinal cord injury.

Birth Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Birth Injury

"Birth Injury" refers to injury to infants during pregnancy, labor, delivery, or the post-delivery period. The injury often involves the brain. This can be diagnosed soon after birth, or there may be a delay before it is recognized. Birth injuries can lead to permanent disabilities. If you suspect your child may have suffered a birth injury, it is never too late to call us for advice.

Our team of birth injury lawyers frequently acts on behalf of injured children and their families. We understand the stress and uncertainty involved in thinking about your child's future. We work with experts to understand the medicine and how the injury occurred, and what the resulting damages are. Our approach is to find answers and fair compensation, while you remain focused on your child and family.

Brain Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers Brain Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Brain Injury

Injury to the brain can occur in a variety of ways, and is often devastating. We understand how difficult it is to navigate the consequences of an acquired brain injury. Whether you or your loved one has suffered a stroke, a surgical complication, or any other medical error resulting in brain injury, a brain injury lawyer from Neinstein has the knowledge and experience to help victims secure compensation for their future.

Neinstein works closely with the Ontario Brain Injury Association and other experts in the field to support research and programming.

Spinal Cord Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers Spinal Cord Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can occur due to various types of medical error. The injury can occur suddenly as a result of a medical or surgical complication, or it may occur progressively because of a delay in diagnosis of an otherwise treatable issue. The impact of a spinal cord injury is often life-altering. Our team of spinal cord injury lawyers has extensive experience working on behalf of victims of preventable spinal cord injury.

Neinstein is also a proud supporter of Spinal Cord Injury Ontario.

Pediatric Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers Pediatric Injury Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Pediatric Injury

Unfortunately, medical errors do sometimes result in injuries to children. This may be related to a mismanaged infection, a delay in diagnosis, a prescription error, or even a surgical error. The impact of a pediatric injury can be life-altering for both the child and his or her family.

Our team of pediatric injury lawyers understands the importance of carefully reviewing each case so that we can help guide our clients.
