Most patients implicitly trust the care provided to them by medical professionals. No healthcare recipient expects their medical ailment to worsen because of an error made by their attending physician. Patients do not typically worry that they will develop additional medical complaints because their doctor provided them with substandard levels of service. However, in some circumstances, the serious errors of healthcare providers can deeply impact their patient’s quality of life.
As a society, we hold doctors, surgeons, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers to high professional standards. This is because, unlike most other professionals, healthcare providers are entrusted with the physical well-being– indeed, the very lives– of the people to whom they attend. When medical professionals behave in a negligent manner, the patients they are treating could sustain severe, preventable, compensable injuries.
Because most people hold the opinion that doctors are infallible and incapable of making critical errors, the victims of medical malpractice often face undue disbelief. After sustaining injuries, it can be difficult to know whether a patient’s worsened condition was caused by their doctor’s negligence, and where they may be able to turn to pursue accountability and financial compensation.
Furthermore, across the country, healthcare providers that face negligence charges are entitled to legal defense provided by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). The CMPA has a reputation for staunchly defending healthcare providers accused of medical malpractice. For the injured victims of a medical professional’s negligence, standing up to the CMPA without legal assistance can feel like an intimidating, impossible task.
However, if the negligence of a healthcare provider caused you to sustain compensable injuries, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Campbellton may be able to help you recover damages you have incurred as a result of their wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other manifestations of negligence.
If a medical professional failed to fulfill the duty of care they owed to their patient and their patient sustained new or worsened injuries or medical complaints as a result, the at-fault healthcare provider may be considered negligent. Common examples of medical malpractice that could constitute negligence 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
