Saint John Medical Malpractice Lawyer

If you were the recipient of medical care and the negligence of your healthcare provider caused your medical condition to worsen or caused you to sustain additional injuries, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

We put our lives in the hands of medical professionals because we trust that they will provide their patients with the highest degree of care. Nobody expects to develop new maladies because of the treatment they have received from their healthcare provider, nor do they anticipate getting sicker after following a course of care recommended by a certified medical professional.

However, accidents can and do happen. In Saint John, the negligence of doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare providers could cause patients to sustain serious, even life-threatening injuries. For those patients in Saint John who have been the victims of medical malpractice, it can be extremely difficult to find accountability.

Doctors across the country are represented by a large-scale organization called the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). This nation-wide entity provides legal defense to the doctors it represents and has a reputation of stringently refuting negligence claims, even in the face of legitimate medical malpractice. Perhaps owing to their history of providing vigorous defenses to medical practitioners accused of malpractice, many patients who have been injured by their doctor’s negligence may be hesitant about pursuing a medical malpractice claim.

Although medical malpractice claims may be difficult to prove, Preszler Injury Lawyers have experience fighting against the CMPA on behalf of normal people who fell victim to a healthcare provider’s negligence. If your condition worsened after receiving medical treatment, or if you developed additional injuries because of a doctor’s negligence, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Saint John may be able to help you recover compensation for damages you incurred because of your healthcare provider’s failure to meet the regular standard of care.

If you are eligible to pursue legal action against your negligent healthcare provider, our Saint John medical malpractice lawyers may be able to compile and present medical evidence proving that:

  • Your healthcare provider did not meet the standard of care.
  • After receiving medical treatment in breach of the regular standard of care, you acquired compensable injuries.
  • The injuries you sustained were the result of your healthcare provider’s negligence.

By doing so, our Saint John medical malpractice lawyers may be able to help you recover economic and non-economic damages you sustained as a result. These damages may 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
  • And possibly more

The statute of limitations on medical malpractice claims provincially is two-years. That means, if your healthcare provider’s negligence caused you physical, compensable harm, you only have a short time in which to act. Because of this narrow window of opportunity, even if you are unsure if your healthcare professional’s conduct amounts to negligence, it may be crucial to seek out legal advice as soon as you are able.
