Across Cape Breton Island, injured and ill patients rely on medical professionals to treat their ailments. Cape Breton residents expect that, when they are required to visit a doctor, undergo surgery, or receive other types of treatment in a hospital setting, they will be treated with the highest degree of care.
Injured and ill patients put their lives in the hands of medical professionals. Because of the serious nature of their occupation, most people trust their healthcare provider to perform their duties diligently, attentively, and in accordance with best medical practices. However, occasionally a doctor, surgeon, nurse, or other healthcare professional provides substandard degrees of service. When this happens, the medical condition of an injured or ill patient may retrogress. Indeed, patients who receive negligent medical care may develop additional, even worse conditions. A patient’s worsened medical condition may cause them to suffer physical pain and discomfort, and could even lead to their premature, wrongful death.
In addition to enduring the physical repercussions of a healthcare provider’s negligence, patients who have been the victim of medical malpractice may incur financial damages as a result. Because of the wrongful actions (or inactions) of a medical professional, Cape Breton residents may be forced to go to great expense and cope with both physical and psychological hardships.
If your medical condition worsened after receiving medical treatment and you believe it was the result of your doctor’s negligence, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Cape Breton may be able to provide you with assistance. If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim, our Cape Breton medical malpractice lawyers may be able to help you recover financial compensation for your compensable damages.
Doctors across the country are represented by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). This nationwide entity has a reputation for vociferously defending the doctors it represents, even when faced with legitimate claims of medical malpractice. As such, the prospect of pursuing a negligence claim against your injurious healthcare provider may feel like a futile endeavour.
However, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Cape Breton have a history of advocating on behalf of our clients’ best interests in the face of scrutiny from the CMPA. By working with medical experts, our Cape Breton medical malpractice lawyers may be able to compile and present compelling, thorough medical evidence to prove that your healthcare provider did not meet their standard of care and, as a direct result of their negligence, you acquired compensable injuries.
By pursuing civil action against the negligent healthcare provider whose unprofessional conduct led you to develop worse or additional injuries, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Cape Breton may be able to help you recover financial compensation for damages you incurred as a result of their negligence.

- Medical expenses
