Medical Malpractice Lawyers Oakville
If you live in Oakville, Neinstein’s medical malpractice lawyers can help if you or your loved one are looking to file a medical malpractice claim.
In Canada, we’re lucky to have access to free healthcare which is funded by taxpayer dollars. Thanks to the Canada Health Act, citizens have access to doctors and nurses who will be there to help us treat our sicknesses and illnesses.
With the Act, our nation’s healthcare policy aims to protect, promote and restore the physical and mental well-being of residents of Canada and to facilitate reasonable access to health services without financial or other barriers. This healthcare helps many Canadians who are suddenly faced with unexpected health problems.
While it’s beneficial to all Canadians to have access to healthcare, it’s not enough to simply be able to receive treatment or have an appointment with a doctor. Patients should be able to expect that doctors and nurses will provide the best care possible in the current environment. Medical malpractice lawyers are an important part of our legal system which advocates on behalf of the victims we represent.
It may surprise you, but Americans file medical malpractice claims 3.5 times more often than Canadians, according to the Wall Street Journal. In 2007, there were 928 legal claims filed against Canadian doctors, but only about 100 of these cases go to trial during a year, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
