At Neinstein, we offer the expertise required to successfully pursue a case related to hospital medication errors, and to get the results you deserve.
Understanding the Medical Malpractice Claims Process
Since cases involving malpractice and errors in medication administration are rarely straightforward and may be difficult to prove, it is essential that the plaintiff receive knowledgeable guidance to best understand their rights and the potential benefits for which they may be eligible.
A medication error lawyer at Neinstein can assist you from the completion of paperwork to negotiations and, in some cases, before a court of law. Our team works closely with medical experts to ensure that the impact of hospital medication errors is communicated both thoroughly and accurately to the insurance company, judge or jury.
We understand that complications related to prescription drug errors are more than purely financial. At Neinstein, it’s our job to look after the details for you and to act in your best interest, so you can focus on the big picture.

A medication error lawyer at Neinstein understands the law and the laws to which a hospital team must comply. Since we work exclusively for our clients and not the insurance companies, it is our sole purpose to get you the necessary support, benefits and financial compensation you deserve.

The Purpose of a Financial Settlement for Cases Related to Medication Administration Error
If you or a loved one has suffered ill effects from prescription or dispensing medication errors, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The purpose of a monetary award is to return the client to the financial situation they were in prior to the medication error. An experienced lawyer can determine a fair value, as well as the insurance benefits to which you may qualify.
Prescription drug errors have the potential to cause lasting, even permanent harm, and you deserve to be compensated. Your ability to work or pursue activities you may have previously enjoyed may be affected following improper dosage or dispensing medication errors by a doctor or pharmacist. If you are no longer able to provide care in the same manner for your dependent children, or require a caregiver to assist you as you recover from a medication administration error, there may be specific benefits for which you are eligible. In addition to compensation for lost or future income, you may also be entitled to a settlement related to the pain and suffering you have sustained as a result of hospital or pharmacy medication errors. Let our experience become your advantage.
No Fees Until Your Case is Successful
When you align with a Neinstein medication error lawyer, we agree to finance your case until it is successfully resolved. Without the burden of up front or hourly fees, we take the time and resources necessary to effectively represent your case, and encourage our clients to contact us with any questions or concerns related to their ongoing file.
This contingency-based (or percentage of recovery) fee agreement is in place for most of our cases, including circumstances related to in-hospital and pharmacy dispensing medication errors, and allows us to serve the people who need help the most, regardless of their financial situation. We are confident that our winning strategies will work for you. If you do not receive financial compensation for your injuries related to prescription drug errors or hospital negligence, you do not pay our legal fees.
Experienced Toronto Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Medical malpractice lawsuits will in most cases be contested vigorously by the CMPA, a not-for-profit organization that provides defense services and liability protection for Canadian doctors. The CMPA’s defence practices are why Toronto medical malpractice lawyers insist on establishing strong cases. Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers partners with experienced medical professionals to prepare for malpractice advocacy. We understand the complexities of establishing a chain of causation, and the consequences of failing to establish that chain.
Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers’ clients benefit from the expertise of our renowned Medical Malpractice Group. Our team helps clients understand the challenges associated with malpractice claims and their options for pursuing compensation.
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a complex field of law which covers the injuries caused by the negligence of medical professionals, pharmaceutical companies, and healthcare institutions. In simple terms, here are a few examples of the kinds of errors that could cause you to approach a Toronto medical malpractice lawyer.
- Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis – When an illness is misidentified, or symptoms of an illness are overlooked leading to a delay in identification. This can cause delayed treatment that leads to negative patient outcomes.
- Medication errors – When the wrong medication or dose of medication is prescribed, causing liver damage, pain and suffering, or a range of other damaging outcomes.
- Surgical errors – Surgeries all have an element of risk which a patient must bear, but serious errors caused by negligence or bad judgement are not among them. Operation on the wrong body part and surgical items left inside the body are particularly blatant examples of this.
- Negligent post-operative care – Infections after surgery, improper monitoring of a patient’s health, mistakes in administering medication while in hospital – these errors are more common than you think and can suggest a bigger problem of improper hygiene and practices at medical establishments.
- Birth injuries – Medical errors during childbirth can have long-term consequences for newborns and mothers. Obstetric specialists must exercise sound medical judgment during these critical moments. Improper care can also result in scarring, physical and developmental delays, and various other impacts for both mother and child.
- Implant failure – Manufacturing or design defects of implanted medical devices can cause illness, chronic pain, and may require corrective surgeries to repair. In rare situations, malfunctioning medical devices can even put patients’ lives at risk.
Accessing medical records and navigating the bureaucracy of the healthcare system is a daunting prospect for ordinary people. If your medical malpractice case involves a healthcare institution or a pharmaceutical company, there will be many challenges to establishing a claim.
