Toronto Surgical Errors Lawyers
We all trust our doctors to provide us with the highest quality of care when diagnosing and treating injuries and illnesses. When they fail to do so, patients are the ones forced to deal with the consequences, and those consequences can be devastating and potentially fatal. That’s why the Toronto lawyers of Mazin & Associates, PC are here to help patients who have been harmed by the negligent actions of doctors.
Medical malpractice that occurs during surgery can be especially hazardous to the patient’s health. Surgical errors can contribute to a host of other medical issues that may require more surgeries, longer hospital stays, and even serious consequences such as coma or death. For example, a doctor may operate on a patient to remove their appendix and injure a surrounding internal organ in the process, requiring more surgeries to fix an issue that should not have occurred in the first place.
If you or a loved one was wrongfully injured as the result of a surgical error, you may be entitled to compensation to help with the resulting financial burdens and emotional distress caused by the doctor’s error. Here at Mazin & Associates, PC, we are passionate about providing the highest quality legal care to all of our clients and fighting for the full compensation they deserve to get them through this trying time.

Do I Need A Surgical Error Lawyer?
After sustaining an injury during surgery, you may be entitled to compensation. You may be owed money for extra surgical procedures and other medical expenses, time in physical therapy, lost wages, and more. If you were harmed by a surgical error, then you will probably file a claim against your doctor’s malpractice insurance and begin negotiations with them.

We consult with a network of expert witnesses to prove that the outcome of your surgery was due in part to your doctor’s incompetence. We take time to show that a competent doctor would have acted differently in the same situation. In addition to this, we contact leading medical associations to see if your doctor strayed from standard medical convention while you were under the knife.
