Even with proper treatment, bad outcomes are a possibility. However, if the doctor who treated you does not meet the reasonable standard of care recognized for doctors with similar qualifications, the doctor will be responsible for any injuries he or she causes you. Virtually all doctors in Canada are insured by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (“CMPA”). The CMPA has immense resources to defend doctors and it defends cases vigorously.
Medical negligence cases can be long and expensive undertakings. However, if a doctor’s negligence results in significant injury, a medical negligence lawsuit is warranted. Our medical malpractice lawyers have over 20 years’ experience litigating medical negligence lawsuits.
