Patients implicitly trust that medical professionals attending to them will deliver the highest quality of medical attention and care. They do so because healthcare providers are held to impeccably high professional standards. No one expects their medical condition to worsen or to sustain new medical complaints because of their healthcare provider’s negligence.
Unfortunately, in some instances, doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare providers deliver a substandard quality of medical care. And when this happens, the patients who have placed their implicit trust in their physician can suffer undue physical harm, emotional distress, and financial hardship.
Additionally, patients who have been the victim of medical malpractice often face undeserved disbelief when pursuing accountability. Doctors across the country who face charges of medical malpractice receive legal defense assistance from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). The CMPA is known throughout the nation for staunchly defending the doctors it represents, even when their actions clearly constituted negligence. Because of the vigorous defense they provide to medical professionals accused of malpractice, the CMPA can make it difficult for injured victims of a doctor’s negligence to recover the justice and financial compensation they deserve.
At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Kentville have experience taking on the CMPA and fighting on behalf of the injured clients we represent. By working with medical experts, our Kentville medical malpractice lawyers may be able to compile and present thorough evidence substantiating our clients’ claims that:
- The patient’s healthcare provider did not meet the standard of care.
- After receiving medical treatment in breach of the regular standard of care, the patient acquired compensable injuries.
- The injuries sustained by the patient were the result of the healthcare provider’s negligence.
If a healthcare provider delivers a substandard level of care and a patient’s medical condition worsens as a result, the at-fault medical professional may be considered negligent. 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
