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. An experienced malpractice lawyer can help you navigate this process.
At Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers, we have the resources and experience to take on all types of medical malpractice lawsuits and class actions. We have represented thousands of clients in medical malpractice claims and won compensation that has helped mitigate their suffering and restore normal life.
Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers understands the anguish you and your family feel when you have suffered a serious medical injury. Our lawyers can connect you with leading clinicians and medical service providers to get you the treatment you need to rehabilitate. Our goal is to help you navigate this challenging time while building a strong case.
What is medical malpractice?
Canadians are lucky to have access to a world-class universal healthcare system staffed by excellent doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals. Healthcare providers have a responsibility to deliver a reasonable standard of care to their patients. When a patient is injured by a negligent act or omission outside that reasonable standard of care, their healthcare practitioner may have committed medical malpractice.
Each medical malpractice case is unique, and how much compensation you are entitled to depends on a number of factors, such as the type of injury and extent of care you will require. Medical errors can produce highly damaging injuries which may affect every aspect of your life. The aim of a medical malpractice claim is to recuperate what you have lost as a result of your injuries. Your compensation can be quantified through lost wages, expenses relating to your care, and the emotional and physical pain and suffering you have experienced.
If you have been injured by the negligent acts or omissions of a healthcare provider, you should immediately contact a medical malpractice lawyer.
Why do I need a medical malpractice lawyer?
In Canada, few lawyers specialize in medical malpractice lawsuits. The length, cost, and complexity of medical malpractice cases means very few lawyers are equipped to adequately litigate them. A medical malpractice lawyer should guide you through every step of the legal process, from determining whether you have a viable claim to assessing what sort of compensation you and your family are entitled to.

We were referred to Duncan through a relative who happens to be a lawyer and has knowledge of the trauma that we were experiencing at the time. Our daughter was born with a traumatic brain injury at delivery and we were clueless about our options but felt we needed to speak to someone and at least explore different possibilities.
Duncan was the second lawyer we met with but immediately felt he would be the best person to represent us. We could tell from the beginning he had immense medical knowledge because of his many years of experiences as a medical malpractice lawyer and we connected with Duncan as a person and a parent; he could relate to us and very personable.
Throughout the four year journey we embarked on Duncan became more of a family member than a just a lawyer. It was an extremely complex process that needed not only legal expertise but also leadership and Duncan always put our family first.
One of the most important attributes that Duncan possesses outside of his legal skills was his ability to understand our family dynamics and keep us informed at every step of the way.
This case was literally our life for over four years. The stress was absolutely enormous and Duncan advocated for us as if he was advocating for his own family. Too many times he had to deal with not only an impossibly frustrating defense counsel but also our short tempers, frustrations and fears. He balanced all this and kept us focused on what was important while he took care of the legal process, which he knew inside out. My wife and I would reassure ourselves that we trust Duncan and his amazing team and that literally got us through some very trying times.
In the end Duncan not only got us the result that was needed and deserved but he did so with putting our family first and in our fragile mental and emotional state we could not have asked for anything more. It’s great to know that we now have the ability to take care of our daughter and her future needs.
I would recommend Duncan without even a moment’s hesitation to anyone that needs expert legal advice and guidance. He is Master of his craft that truly cares about the families he represents.N.V. & K.H.
