Southern Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe corridor, which includes the Greater Toronto Area, is Canada’s busiest and most populous region. Providing an acceptable quality of life for the nearly 30 per cent of Canada’s population that calls the Golden Horseshoe home is a daunting undertaking. While Ontario’s healthcare system generally does an excellent job of providing care to the region’s 8.76 million inhabitants, occasional medical errors are unavoidable when dealing with such a large number of potential patients. In the unfortunate cases where medical malpractice arises, Neinstein’s medical malpractice lawyers are here to help.
In cases of medical error or malpractice, it is important for healthcare practitioners to be held responsible for their actions, and for patients to receive the compensation they deserve for their pain and suffering. A 2004 study estimated that 71,995 adverse medical events occurred in Ontario, resulting in between 3,561 and 9,143 deaths. In these situations, medical malpractice lawyers play a vital role in helping victims of malpractice and their families navigate the confusing and often painful waters of a malpractice claim.
Unfortunately, the Brampton area is no stranger to medical errors and preventable injuries. One notable case of medical error in Brampton occurred at the William Osler Health Centre, where a young Port Credit child was left with severe brain damage after doctors mishandled her high fever. The five-month-old’s body began to shut down while at the centre, and her heart stopped multiple times. As a result, she is unable to care for herself, and has the mental capacity of someone half her age. She will never be able to work, needs frequent physical and occupational therapy sessions, and is at a constant risk of seizures.
Properly diagnosing a patient is a critical element of good healthcare. Doctors should consider patient history and order appropriate tests and investigations in pursuit of the correct diagnosis. The patient or the patient’s family should be made aware of important information during the diagnostic process. Failure to properly diagnose a patient can result in myriad serious injuries, including mental or physical disabilities. Medical malpractice lawyers can help you determine whether you or your family member has been offered an appropriate level of care at any point during the care cycle, including during diagnosis.
Medical malpractice lawsuits in Canada are traditionally difficult to assemble. In order for such a claim to be successful, it is important to consult with specialized medical malpractice lawyer, who will help you compile evidence and assess the viability of your suit. While Ontarians are lucky to have access to a strong and affordable healthcare system, the province’s hospitals, nurses, and doctors are not above error. At Neinstein, our team of highly experienced medical malpractice lawyers are well-versed in the complexities of Ontario’s healthcare system, and can help you decide whether a malpractice suit is your best course of action.
In medical malpractice cases, strong evidence must be obtained and preserved quickly. If you believe that you or a family member in the Brampton area has experienced an instance of medical error or malpractice, you should contact the medical malpractice lawyers at Neinstein today.
