Port Hawkesbury Medical Malpractice Lawyer

In Port Hawkesbury, the medical conditions of patients who have received a substandard level of care from their healthcare providers often worsen and retrogress. Additionally, victims of medical malpractice frequently develop additional medical complaints as a result of their physician’s negligence. When this happens, the injured patient could feel the adverse effects of their healthcare provider’s negligence for years to come.

In addition to sustaining physical trauma, emotional anguish, and financial losses as a result of a medical practitioner’s misconduct, the victims of medical malpractice often face a great deal of disbelief. Doctors are held in high professional esteem; their judgment and actions are rarely questioned by their colleagues and by their patients, who placed their trust implicitly in their healthcare provider’s hands.

Furthermore, when doctors are accused of medical malpractice, they are entitled to legal representation from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). The CMPA has a reputation for rigorously defending doctors across the country, even when their actions constituted negligence. For this reason, without legal assistance from medical malpractice lawyers serving Port Hawkesbury, it can be very hard to prove that your newly acquired medical condition was the direct result of your healthcare provider’s negligence.

Our Port Hawkesbury medical malpractice lawyers have experience standing up to the CMPA. Working with medical experts, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Port Hawkesbury may be able to compile and present compelling evidence providing the correlation between your worsened medical condition and your doctor’s wrongful conduct. By doing so, our Port Hawkesbury medical malpractice lawyers may be able to help you recover the damages you incurred because of your healthcare provider’s negligence. These damages could include:

  • Medical expenses
  • 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
  • Punitive damages
  • And possibly more

Healthcare providers owe their patients a duty of care. Unfortunately, through a number of different actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of wrongful conduct, they could fail to uphold their duty of care, thereby causing their patients to sustain serious injuries. 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

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should be forced to suffer the physical, emotional, or financial ramifications of a healthcare provider’s negligence. If a doctor’s wrongful actions caused your condition to worsen, they should be held accountable for their wrongful actions.
