Medical Malpractice Lawyers Lakefield
Lakefield residents who have suffered an injury due to medical error should contact Neinstein’s team of medical malpractice lawyers.
Medical malpractice lawyers play a critical role in ensuring that Ontarians receive a reasonable standard of care each time they enter a hospital, doctor’s office, or health clinic. Though free healthcare is provided to all Ontario residents, having access to physicians and medication does not guarantee a return to health. Doctors, nurses, midwives, and all Ontario healthcare professionals are responsible for administering care to the best of their ability, and in instances where a reasonable standard of care is not met, a medical malpractice lawyer will fight to hold the guilty parties responsible.
Neinstein’s team of medical malpractice lawyers have years of experience helping patients receive compensation for medical errors relating to:
– Nursing errors
– Birthing injuries
– Medication administration errors
– Acquired brain injuries
– Breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer
– tPA administration
– Hypoxic brain injuries
– Atrial fibrillation
– Cardiac arrest, and
– Surgical negligence.
When a physician treats any of the above illnesses, they have a responsibility to consult patient backgrounds, administer appropriate tests, and keep patients well informed of their medical situation as a diagnosis is sought. Once a proper diagnosis has been found, doctors must update patients and patients’ families, address any worries or fears the patient may have, perform any necessary procedures in a safe and sanitary manner, and generally act to the best of their ability when treating the patient. An instance of medical malpractice or negligence can occur at any point during the care cycle, from assessment to medication administration. Medical errors can have grave repercussions on a patient’s health, and can, in some cases lead to death. If you or a member of your family have been injured through medical malpractice, you should contact a medical malpractice lawyer from Neinstein immediately.
The process of filing and pursuing a medical malpractice case is, unfortunately, complex and demanding. Doctors in Ontario are protected by the Canadian Medical Protective Association, which hires top lawyers to vigorously defend against all malpractice claims. Medical malpractice lawyers understand health care standards and the legalities surrounding malpractice issues. They can help you determine whether the injuries you have suffered warrant a medical malpractice claim, and give sound advice on how to best pursue compensation.
Medical injuries can be very serious, and can have terrible mental impact on both the victim and the victim’s family. Medical malpractice lawyers work to guide malpractice cases through the legal system while allowing you and your family to focus on recovery and rehabilitation.
