Medical Malpractice Legal Counsel
While a medical malpractice claim involves an injury to the person – it is considerably more than a “personal injury” claim. You need legal counsel experienced in identifying the difference between a potential claim and a viable claim. You need someone who has the contacts within the legal and medical communities to investigate the issues and present your claim to it’s fullest potential.
When you challenge a doctor in the courts you are taking on more than an individual doctor. He or she will be represented by experienced lawyers who are taking instructions directly from the doctors’ defense association (the Canadian Medical Protective Association). The CMPA has deep pockets and has the mandate to fight to defend all legal action whenever there is (even a slim) chance of defeating the claim. They do not take a commercial view and settle a claim simply because it may be less expensive to pay compensation than pay for legal costs.
