Many people think of doctors as infallible and incapable of making mistakes. We hold doctors to an impeccably high professional standard because of the lifesaving knowledge and skills required to competently perform their jobs. Because of the very life-and-death nature of their occupations and the high esteem in which healthcare providers are held, patients who have received negligent medical care often face undeserved skepticism and misbelief.
However, even doctors make mistakes. The wrongful actions of healthcare providers could have serious, injurious consequences for the patients in their care. If a medical professional fails to uphold the duty of care they are required to provide, their patients’ medical conditions may worsen. Recipients of negligent medical care could also sustain new injuries or additional medical complaints because of their doctor’s malpractice. Common examples of medical malpractice that often cause patients to sustain additional physical maladies 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
Unfortunately, when the wrongful actions of doctors, nurses, surgeons, physicians, and other medical professionals cause patients’ medical conditions to degrade, the recipients of negligent medical care may find it difficult to prove the correlation between their worsened conditions and their healthcare provider’s negligence. In addition to facing undeserving scrutiny from peers and hospital administrators, the victims of medical malpractice may face stringent defense from the legal counsel hired to protect the negligent healthcare provider.
That is because doctors across the country who have been charged with medical malpractice can rely on the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) to provide them with rigorous legal defense, even in the face of legitimate negligence charges. Without the assistance of medical malpractice lawyers serving Sackville, it can be extremely difficult for injured patients in the region to recover the accountability and financial compensation they deserve.
However, our Sackville medical malpractice lawyers have a history of taking on the CMPA to help the clients we represent recover the compensation they are rightfully owed. If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim against your negligent healthcare provider, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Sackville may be able to help you recover damages you have incurred because of your injuries, as well as damages you may incur in the future.
