Shediac Medical Malpractice Lawyer


Patients in Shediac who require medical attention expect their healthcare providers to deliver the highest degree of service. Doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other medical practitioners have tremendous responsibilities and, as such, should provide a level of service commensurate with their occupation’s expectations.

Healthcare providers owe a duty of care to their patients. If a medical professional, through a number of wrongful actions or inactions, fails to fulfill the duty of care they are required to provide, their patients’ medical conditions may worsen. They could also sustain new injuries or additional medical complaints as a product of their healthcare provider’s wrongful conduct. In these cases, the injured patient’s healthcare provider may be considered negligent and, therefore, liable for damages they have incurred as a result of their injurious errors.

Common examples of medical malpractice that could constitute negligence 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

If a healthcare provider’s negligence caused you to sustain compensable injuries, you may be entitled to financial compensation. However, without assistance from our medical malpractice lawyers serving Shediac, proving that your doctor’s negligence caused your newly worsened condition can be extremely difficult.

That is because, throughout the country, doctors who face medical malpractice charges can receive defense assistance from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). The CMPA has a nationwide reputation for vigorously defending the healthcare providers they represent against negligence charges, even when their wrongful conduct legitimately caused a patient harm.

Our Shediac medical malpractice lawyers have experience representing the best interests of the clients we represent, and standing up to the CMPA to fight on our injured clients’ behalf. By working with medical experts, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Shediac may be able to compile thorough, compelling evidence substantiating your negligence claim. In doing so, our Shediac medical malpractice lawyers may be able to help you prove 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.

If you are eligible to pursue a civil claim against your negligent healthcare provider whose actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of wrongful conduct caused you to sustain compensable injuries, our medical malpractice lawyers serving Shediac 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. These damages often 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
