Toronto Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Doctors, nurses, and hospital staff each have the responsibility of caring for the health of their patients to the best of their abilities. If they do not apply their best efforts to every case, then tragic consequences often arise. Unfortunately, many doctors do not apply the appropriate level of care when handling patients. A doctor’s negligent actions often create additional medical complications and cost patients time, money, and even their lives. Any preventable illness is unjust, especially when a doctor, whose duty it is to maintain the health of a patient, creates it.
At Mazin & Associates, PC, we understand how infuriating it is when doctors fail to take the steps necessary to prevent their patient from facing additional injury. Patients seek doctors in good faith expecting to receive the highest level of care in their treatment. Unfortunately, many times that is not the case. Our Toronto medical malpractice lawyers believe that patients who receive care from negligent doctors deserve compensation for their unnecessary medical complications. Contact our office today at (416) 625-2122 to learn more about how our legal team can assist you in recovering the compensation you may deserve.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice
Doctors and other health professionals receive high salaries so that they treat every patient with their best care. Even the best doctor is capable of medical malpractice if they do not care for patients to the best of their ability. All it takes is one error or one moment of negligence to cost a patient his or her life. Medical malpractice can occur in many forms and cases. Some of the most common types of medical malpractice include:
- Birth Injuries & Cerebral Palsy
- Delayed Treatment
- Improper Treatment
- Lack of Informed Consent
- Surgical Errors
- Emergency Room Errors
- Pharmaceutical Errors
- Wrongful Death
- Hospital Negligence
When medical professionals are negligent, the burdens of the consequences are placed on the patient. These doctors and hospitals need to be held responsible for the unnecessary harm they cause.
Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
Medical malpractice cases are complex lawsuits that are vigorously defended by knowledgeable defence counsel. In such cases, there are frequently claims made by a patient or a family member of the patient’s family against doctors, nurses or hospital workers that provided medical care.
To succeed in a medical malpractice case, the complainant must satisfy the court that the caregiver’s conduct fell below the standard of care to which the patient was entitled.
In medical malpractice law, negligence refers to caregivers doing something they should not have done, or not doing something they should have done, measured against the reasonable treatment that should have been done in the circumstances.
