“First, do no harm.” For generations, doctors have sworn this oath to safeguard the physical health and well-being of the people in their care. Doctors owe a duty of care to their patients, and are bound by this duty to provide an optimal level of medical service to everyone in their charge.

However, on certain occasions, doctors can neglect the duty of care they owe to their patients. By shirking their responsibilities and engaging in any number of wrongful actions, inactions, or other forms of negligence, healthcare providers can put their patients’ lives at risk, cause their medical conditions to worsen, or allow them to sustain new medical complaints. 

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 

Patients who have received a substandard level of medical care could feel the effects of their healthcare provider’s negligence for the rest of their lives. A doctor’s failure to meet the medical field’s standards of care could cause an injured patient to sustain physical trauma, develop severe mental health issues, and incur substantial monetary losses. What’s more, since doctors are so implicitly trusted by their colleagues and other patients, the victims of medical malpractice often face undue suspicion and disbelief. 

If you were the victim of medical malpractice, proving that your worsened medical condition was the result of your healthcare provider’s negligence can be difficult, especially without assistance from our medical malpractice lawyers serving Wolfville. Doctors across the country who have been accused of negligent conduct can receive legal defense from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), a nationwide organization with a reputation for staunchly defending healthcare providers, even when facing legitimate medical malpractice claims. 

By working with our Wolfville medical malpractice lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against your negligent healthcare provider to recover damages you have incurred because of the newly worsened medical condition you developed as a result of their substandard treatment.
