Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical malpractice is an intricate branch of the law that requires extensive knowledge and expertise. As such, victims often believe that they cannot win their case. If you feel as though your healthcare practitioner has not provided you with a duty of care that is standard, you must bring the issue to our personal injury lawyers in Hamilton. You and your loved ones do not deserve to suffer from a damaging or fatal mistake.

Examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Surgical Errors
  • Administration Errors

  • Medication Prescription Errors

  • Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis

  • Pregnancy or Childbirth Negligence

  • Absence of Informed Consent

  • Refusal to Provide Care Based on Discrimination

DWA Lawyers for Medical Malpractice Cases?

Whether your case is against a surgeon, midwife, or chiropractor, healthcare professionals, though experienced and trusted, are still human and can make mistakes. When that happens, we’re here to represent you and take action against errors, negligence, and malpractice. As we investigate your case, a DWA medical malpractice lawyer will strive to prove that your healthcare professional’s actions resulted in:

  • Disability

  • Continual Pain and/or Suffering

  • Substantial Loss of Income and/or Hardship

Note: If the category of pain and suffering applies to your case, there is a retribution limit of $350,000. However, extreme medical malpractice cases and cases that fall under other categories may qualify for higher amounts of financial retribution.

Duty of Care

When you seek medical attention from a practitioner or establishment, they have a duty of care towards you. In other words, they are legally bound to potentially not cause you harm, either through acts or omissions.

Medical negligence is divided into different categories:

  • Breaches of Duty: An individual acted recklessly or neglectfully towards another person when providing standard care.
  • Causation: This is the act of an individual causing harm when they should have known the outcome.
  • Damages: These are the results of an individual’s negligent actions.

No matter what type of malpractice situation you have experienced, a personal injury lawyer in Hamilton can tell you if your case is worth pursuing. When you come in for a consultation, we will explain the process in detail.
