How a Personal Injury Lawyer can Help You in the Event of a Birth Injury Claim
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional (e.g., doctor, nurse, dentist, etc.) causes physical and/or injury due to negligence, error, or omission of a critical part of a procedure or failure to follow the standard of care. It can also include failure to properly explain the risks involved with a certain treatment or procedure, thus nullifying any signed consent. Any doctor who does not obtain an informed consent faces liability.
Strype Personal Injury Lawyers draw from our extensive experience in medical negligence cases and negotiate with the legal representatives for the doctors, the Canadian Medical Protective Association. (CMPA) Hospitals are represented by a different insurance reciprocal. Both doctors and hospitals are very capably defended and rate plaintiffs’ counsel as to their experience and success in medical negligence cases.
