Amherst Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Across the world, the people studying to work in the healthcare profession learn the phrase, “First, do no harm.” This fundamental principle is at the core of the practice of medicine and reminds healthcare providers to consider the full effects of their medical interventions. Doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare providers owe their patients a duty of care. Given the often life-or-death nature of the decisions they are required to make, people working in the field of medicine are held to the highest of professional standards.

Patients in Amherst should feel safe trusting their healthcare providers. The people who require medical treatments, assessments, and care are entitled to the services of a competent, attentive, and cautious medical professional.

If, through various forms of wrongful conduct, a medical professional neglects the duty of care they owe their patients, injured or ill people who require medical care could be adversely impacted by their physician’s negligence. The recipients of substandard medical care often sustain physical trauma, worsened medical conditions, and additional medical complaints. As a result of their healthcare provider’s negligence, victims of medical malpractice may be required to pay steep out-of-pocket fees for newly developed injury-related costs.

Common examples of medical malpractice that could cause patients to develop worsened medical conditions include:

  • Misdiagnosing an injury or illness
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Surgical errors
  • Misreading or ignoring laboratory test results
  • Disregarding the patient’s medical history
  • Failing to sterilize medical equipment
  • Prescribing improper medication or incorrect dosages
  • And more

Across the country, medical professionals receive legal defense from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). This nationwide organization has a reputation for rigorously defending doctors against claims of medical malpractice, even in the face of legitimate, provable complaints. As such, it can be difficult for the recipients of negligent medical care to recover the accountability and financial restitution they deserve.
