Ontarians are fortunate to have access to a world-class comprehensive healthcare system. Our doctors and nurses, and the hospitals they work in, are expected to practice with diligence and provide a reliable, reasonable standard of care. Effective healthcare has a direct impact on Ontarians’ quality of life, and doctors are expected to consult patient histories, adhere to healthcare best practices, and keep patients aware of their medical situation and needs.
Even in a well-regulated healthcare system like Ontario’s, though, human error can and does occur. For instance, a delayed diagnoses can result in grave health repercussions such as physical or mental disabilities or, in rare cases, death. Instances of medical error or medical negligence can occur at any point in the care cycle, including during operation, during post-op care or monitoring, or due to drug administration errors. Medical malpractice lawyers play an important role in the healthcare system by holding doctor’s offices, hospitals, medical clinics, and the healthcare professionals that work in them responsible for their actions.
The Neinstein team of medical malpractice lawyers, led by Duncan Embury’s more than 20 years of experience with medical malpractice cases, is capable of handling a wide range of malpractice claims. For instance, strokes or cerebral vascular accidents (CVAs), which occur when brain cells die due to lack of oxygen, are often unavoidable. However, in certain instances risk factors like high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, or carotid artery disease can and should be treated to reduce the chance of a stroke occurring. Proper stroke prevention and treatment processes are essential to reducing the devastating consequences of a stroke, and some instances where a stroke is misdiagnosed or improperly treated can be considered medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice cases are complicated and difficult to win in Ontario, where physicians are protected by the Canadian Medical Protective Association. To ensure a physician or nurse is held responsible for their mistakes, Neinstein’s medical malpractice lawyers are well versed in the intricacies and legalities of the Canadian healthcare system. We can help you assess your claim and determine whether pursuing a medical malpractice case is the best choice for you and your family.
Neinstein’s medical malpractice lawyers will guide your case through the legal system, allowing you and your loved ones the time and peace of mind to focus on recovery and healing. Despite the Ontario healthcare system’s reputation for providing timely, capable care, instances of medical error and neglect continue to occur, and can cause great grief and pain for both the victims and the victims’ families.
