Antigonish Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Healthcare providers undergo rigorous training before they are qualified to treat patients. Doctors, surgeons, physicians, practitioners, and other medical professionals must have a certain level of knowledge, skill, and expertise that can only be ascertained through years of schooling and practical training. Because of their great depth of knowledge, patients generally trust the advice of their healthcare provider implicitly.

Medical malpractice, therefore, is a deep betrayal of the trust patients have placed in their healthcare provider. Medical professionals owe a duty of care to their patients. Indeed, doctors swear an oath to safeguard the physical health and well-being of the people in their care. Unfortunately, through a number of different actions, errors, omissions, or other forms of negligence, healthcare providers can shirk the duty of care they owe their patients. When they do, the consequences can be dire.

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

Recipients of substandard medical care may experience worsening symptoms of the complaints for which they were being treated. A healthcare provider’s negligence may also cause an injured or ill patient to develop new medical complaints in addition to the ones from which they were already suffering.

The victims of medical malpractice may experience the adverse effects of their healthcare provider’s negligence physically, psychologically, and financially. In addition to sustaining a worsened medical condition, victims of medical malpractice often develop serious mental health issues as a result of lengthy, isolating, demoralizing recovery processes. Being the recipient of negligent medical care may also force an ailing patient to incur financial losses. The economic damages they sustain may be related to additional medical expenses and procedures, lifestyle adjustments, lost wages due to missed work, psychological counselling, and more.

If your healthcare provider’s failure to deliver a level of care commensurate with their industry’s professional standards caused you to sustain compensable injuries, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Antigonish may be able to provide you with crucial legal assistance and advice. By working with our Antigonish medical malpractice lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim to recover damages you have incurred as a result of your doctor’s negligence.

  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
