Lets define Medical Malpractice: It is the professional negligence, by act or omission, of a health care provider in which the treatment resulted in a level of medical practice that is below the standard commonly accepted by the medical community and which results in injury or death, which is a direct result of that medical error.
Medical Malpractice is an aggressively growing area of claims in both the insurance and the legal industries. With increased access to information through technology, our population has become more informed about their rights, and is also gaining a better understanding of their rights, leading to an influx of medical malpractice claims that are legitimately founded. Our lives are hectic, our workday pressures are increasing and our ability to perform accurately is something everyone deals with, however, a medical practitioner has the added pressure to ensure that none of these “pressures or stresses” interfere with the treatment of their patients, whether it be prescribing medication or performing a surgical procedure. We are talking about our health…and our lives. Not only our own lives, but the lives of our loved ones; compromised or careless, uninformed errors cannot be tolerated.
We will fully explain all of your options so that you can make an informed decision.
HOW FREQUENT AND COSTLY IS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?
According to Canadian Dimension Magazine, some 40,000 deaths are caused annually due to errors in the Canadian health care delivery system – in other words, due to medical malpractice. The author of the subject article, William Charney, estimates that the actual statistics of medical malpractice in the country are probably much higher because of a lack of reporting of such instances.
WHAT ARE YOUR CHOICES?
Essentially you have two choices: do what so many have done and not take action to deal with the unfortunate outcomes of the medical malpractice. This path could have you dealing with injuries that span years or even a lifetime and cost you an unbearable financial burden that is never properly compensated, possibly denying you access to the best medical solutions, post-event medical support or costly prosthetics that will help to improve your lifestyle. Or even worse, these costs and the financial implications of losing income could even bankrupt you.
Your second option is to make a stand and seek the guidance, advice and expertise of a professional lawyer or legal team that understand the challenges and intimacies of a medical malpractice lawsuit. The right medical malpractice legal team will give your misfortune a voice and give you access to the compensation that you are entitled to.
