Chéticamp Medical Malpractice Lawyer


Patients suffering the effects of illnesses or injuries should never expect to receive substandard medical treatment from their healthcare providers. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other physicians have a duty of care to their patients, and are held to the highest of professional standards for a reason. Healthcare providers are required to undergo intense medical training through years of schooling and practical experiential training so that, no matter the situation, they are equipped to expertly remedy it for their patient.

Obviously, doctors are not miracle-workers and some medical complaints have negative prognoses. However, all patients should be able to trust that their healthcare provider will deliver a level of service commensurate with the life-or-death consequences of their jobs.

Unfortunately, healthcare providers do not always meet these high professional standards and administer medical treatment in a negligent manner. Through a number of errors, wrongful actions, omissions, or other forms of negligence, medical professionals could cause their patients’ conditions to worsen, jeopardizing their overall physical health.

Common examples of medical malpractice that could seriously injure the patients in a negligent doctor’s care 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

Patients who have received negligent medical care often incur substantial financial losses as a result of their worsened medical conditions or newly developed injuries. Furthermore, owing to the implicit trust generally placed in medical practitioners from both their colleagues and other community members, the victims of medical malpractice are often met with suspicion, or their assertions of negligence are roundly dismissed outright. This might be especially true for those pursuing legal action against the healthcare provider whose negligence caused their medical condition to worsen. Since doctors across the country are entitled to defense counsel from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), injured victims of medical malpractice often face difficulty substantiating their claims.

However, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Chéticamp have experience working with medical experts to compile irrefutable evidence to prove the claims of the clients we represent. By standing up to the CMPA with compelling medical evidence, our Chéticamp medical malpractice lawyers may be able to help injured patients recover the compensation they deserve.

By working with our medical malpractice lawyers serving Chéticamp, you may be able to recover damages you have incurred because of your healthcare provider’s negligence, as well as damages you will incur in the future. These damages could include:
