If you have been hurt as a result of medical negligence, error or malpractice, we can help.

If you believe you have been injured by medical malpractice, our personal injury team at Gluckstein Lawyers can help you.  We have a team of medical malpractice lawyers in Toronto, Ottawa, and Niagara dedicated to pursuing cases across Ontario on behalf of patients injured through medical negligence.

Doctors, nurses, midwives, hospitals and other health care providers are expected to provide you with medical care that meets certain standards.  When the care you receive fails to meet those standards, injury can occur and responsibility for that injury may fall on the health care provider.

In a medical malpractice case, our team seeks to recover compensation for the losses that you have suffered due to substandard medical care.  No matter where in Ontario you live, we are available to help you with a medical malpractice claim.  We pursue cases involving birth trauma, brain injury, spinal cord injury, or any other adverse medical outcome that leads to significant disability or financial losses.

Pursuing Your Medical Malpractice Claim

Claims for damages arising out of medical malpractice are complex and challenging.  It is essential, therefore, that you be represented by medical malpractice lawyers with experience and a proven track record.  Where you pursue a medical negligence claim, your lawyer must help you prove that the health care providers failed to meet the standards of care and that the failure to do so resulted in harm.  Proving these claims involves close and detailed work between your lawyer and independent medical experts that your lawyer hires to advise and assist you with your case.

In many circumstances, medical malpractice cases need to be started quickly.  There is a two-year limitation period for suing a medical practitioner or hospital.  That limitation period begins to run from the date you knew or ought to have known of facts giving rise to a claim.  For medical negligence that results in death, the two-year limitation period runs from the date of death.  For people under disability[1] and children under 18 years of age, the limitation period may be longer.

In most cases, however, it is prudent to pursue your case as soon as you suspect that you have suffered a bad outcome as a result of medical malpractice.  It is usually helpful to begin these cases while things are still fresh in your mind.  As well, your personal injury lawyer needs to collect all of the relevant medical records in a timely way to identify the issues in your case and to ensure that your medical experts are asked the right questions.  If you wait too long, it may be too late.

Medical malpractice cases are expensive to pursue.  Where we believe your claim has merit, we will agree to prosecute your claim based on a contingency fee agreement.  That means that we don’t get paid unless you get paid.

One moment in time can change a million after it. I never imagined that anything like this would happen to me; never mind deciding on who would be the right lawyer to represent me; is willing to fight with me, for happiness I seek once again; for what I believe to be right. I found that assurance in Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers.


The Gluckstein team was there for us every step of the way after our baby’s catastrophic birth injury. At one of the most difficult times of our lives, we were reassured by our lawyers’ deep knowledge and expertise as well as their genuine compassion for our family. They are truly amazing and we can’t recommend them enough!

The Jennings

The lawyers at Gluckstein were extremely helpful and supportive when I came to them with my case. They handled it very professionally and assertively and always had my best interests at the forefront of their actions. I am very pleased with the outcome and would recommend them to any of my friends and family.

Lindsey Dobben

We couldn’t be more satisfied with the support we got from the entire Gluckstein team following our daughters brain injury shortly after her birth. During a very trying time and after contacting numerous law firms with no response. Once Charles and the staff at Gluckstein took on our case we never looked back.
