In the vast majority of cases, Canadians appreciate and are satisfied with their health care. Doctors and medical staff ensure that patient well-being is the top priority, and most people in need of medical treatment are protected from negative outcomes.
However, when injurious medical errors do occur, it is important that the responsible parties are held to account, not only for the injured patient, but also for future patients.
Obviously, not everyone is a medical professional, and we trust doctors and medical staff to do their jobs effectively and make the right decisions to protect our health. At Gluckstein Lawyers, we understand the vulnerability that often accompanies the need for medical care, and we work on behalf of individuals and families who have been harmed because of medical negligence.
Medical malpractice claims tend to involve extremely complex evidence that may not be readily available to the party who has been injured. A thorough investigation is necessary to gather this evidence, organize it and present it in an manner that maximizes compensation for the patient.
Medical errors often change the lives of patients and their families forever. Nonetheless, you can be assured that medical professionals and their insurers will do what is legally in their power to deny liability for an injury. A lawyer with experience in handling these claims can provide an independent assessment of the case and work to hold the responsible parties accountable.
The negative effects of some medical procedures -- surgery, for instance -- may not arise until quite some time after the procedure was finished. Gluckstein Lawyers investigate these kinds of mistakes and help patients receive the compensation they need to move on with their lives.
