Ottawa Medical Malpractice Lawyers
We place immense trust and faith with medical professionals. They have our or our loved one’s health and life in their hands. There are times, however, when any medical professional, including a doctor or nurse, falls short of providing their patient with the proper standard of care. These devastating errors are medical malpractice and can result in a broad spectrum of injuries or disabilities.
Medical malpractice cases are incredibly challenging to pursue, both from an emotional and legal standpoint. When medical professionals breach these standards of care, injuring you or your loved one, it is critical to have an experienced legal team on your side to ensure that appropriate recovery of damages is achieved for you. Our medical malpractice Ottawa team of dedicated and experienced lawyers is here to assist you. While we cannot reverse the damage from such an injury, we are here to advocate for you or your loved one who suffered an injury or loss due to a medical error while you focus on recovery.
How Do I Get Started With My Medical Malpractice Claim in Ottawa?
To begin, we recommend you schedule a free consultation with one of our Ottawa medical malpractice lawyers in Ontario. This will allow us to discuss your case at length and determine if there is merit. As Medical Malpractice law is complex and has many nuances, many adverse medical outcomes due to medical errors are not necessarily able to be litigated.
The Ottawa Medical Malpractice team, however, is highly-involved and committed to each medical malpractice case we take on. We start by extensively reviewing the medical records and the current issues at hand, eventually graduating to consultations with trusted and qualified medical experts to provide us with an expert opinion. We aim to ensure that you get the compensation and care you deserve and will always go above and beyond to achieve it.
Establishing Negligence and Proving Duty of Care in a Medical Negligence Case
While the law is lenient in allowing doctors or healthcare professionals to make difficult decisions involving their patient’s care, healthcare professionals must follow accepted standards of care regardless of the circumstances. Our first step as Medical Malpractice lawyers is to establish that your healthcare professional was medically neglectful and negligent and, as a result, violated their standard of care.
If your medical professional breached their standard of care, they acted recklessly by being neglectful or negligent. To succeed in litigating a medical negligence claim, the injured or otherwise sick patient must prove that their medical practitioner’s breach of standard care was the direct cause of their medical injury.
Our experienced and committed medical malpractice lawyers in Ottawa are dedicated to reviewing and potentially litigating your medical malpractice claim with the help of respected medical experts and tangible evidence of negligence.
