Medical Malpractice Lawyers Newmarket
Consider a medical malpractice lawyer from Neinstein for your malpractice claims in the Newmarket area.
As Canadians, we are lucky to have access to an affordable, world-class healthcare system. Our hospitals, doctors, and nurses are obligated to practice with due diligence and provide an acceptable, reliable level of service. This includes consulting patient histories, adhering to industry best practices, keeping patients well informed, and helping them to understand their healthcare needs. Effective healthcare has a direct impact on Canadians’ quality of life.
However, our healthcare framework cannot protect patients against all hospital or nursing errors. Improper or delayed diagnoses, for instance, can result in serious health repercussions, including the development of physical or mental disabilities, or even death. An instance of medical malpractice can occur during any part of the care cycle, including in the operating room, during post-operation care, or from errors in drug administration. The role of a medical malpractice lawyer is to ensure that Canadians receive appropriate care each time they visit a hospital, doctor’s office, or medical clinic.
Neinstein’s team of medical malpractice lawyers – led by Duncan Embury, head of the Medical Malpractice Group, who has more than 20 years of experience in handling medical malpractice cases – is well-versed in a wide range of malpractice claims. Surgical malpractice, for example, may involve an error as obvious as forgetting to remove a sponge before closing up or injuring an organ during the operation. More subtle errors, including failing to operate in a timely manner or subsequent failure of anastomosis can also result in dangerous illness. In either case, an acceptable standard of care has not been provided, and the patient may have grounds for a malpractice claim. Birthing injuries, acquired brain injuries, cardiac arrest, sepsis, various forms of cancer, and medication or nursing errors may also leave a hospital or medical practitioner liable.
Medical malpractice cases are complex in nature. In order to ensure that there are consequences for mistakes made in the medical profession, a specialized medical malpractice lawyer is required to bring forward a malpractice claim. Medical malpractice lawyers have a strong understanding of healthcare standards, and can help you assess whether the situation that you or a loved one has experienced has a foundation for a claim.
A medical malpractice lawyer can also guide a malpractice case through the legal system, allowing you and your family the peace of mind to begin the recovery or healing process. Although Ontario’s healthcare systems generally provide excellent coverage for all variety of illnesses and injuries, negligent care resultant in serious injury, disability, or death can cause significant grief and trauma for effected patients and their families.
