Shelburne Medical Malpractice Lawyer


Patients seek out the services of healthcare providers when they develop physical illnesses, injuries, or other maladies that require expert assistance from qualified professionals. Healthcare professionals owe a duty of care to their patients. As such, one can expect that, by undergoing medical treatments prescribed by qualified physicians, the medical conditions of injured or ill patients should improve, not get worse.

Unfortunately, even the most well-qualified, well-trained, and well-intentioned healthcare providers can sometimes fail to fulfill the duty of care they are required to provide their patients. Through various forms of wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other kinds of negligence, doctors can cause their patients’ medical conditions to retrogress, putting them at risk of developing additional medical complaints and even losing their lives.

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

Oftentimes, when patients are the recipients of substandard medical care and their conditions begin to worsen, it can take a significant period of time to identify the problem and discover its cause. In the time it takes to properly diagnose a retrogressed medical condition resulting from medical malpractice, it may be too late for the patient to fully recover. Patients who have been the victims of medical malpractice often face disbelief from their healthcare providers and other people in their lives. Because doctors are so unquestionably trusted, it can be difficult to convince others that their negligence caused a patient to develop serious medical problems.

On top of that, doctors in this country who have been accused of medical malpractice can avail themselves of legal defense services from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), a nationwide entity with a reputation for staunchly defending the doctors it represents. The rigorous defenses mounted by the CMPA can make it very difficult for the victims of medical malpractice to draw a definitive, causational line between their newly aggrieved medical condition and their healthcare provider’s wrongful actions.
