Servicing Welland and all of Ontario
Anyone can make a mistake. Sometimes these errors are so minor, no one notices – perhaps not even the person who made the mistake. Other times, these errors can have significant and lasting consequences.
Each year, around 138,000 Canadians in acute care medical facilities experience preventable “adverse events.” The sensitive nature of medical environments and the fragility or frailty of some patients mean that errors in these places can hinder recovery, cause serious injury or disability, and even lead to an untimely death. Unfortunately, people living in the Welland are aren’t immune to these events or outcomes.
More Than A Mistake
When a medical provider’s mistake or error in judgment breaches the standards of care causing serious harm and negligence is found to have played a role, it’s called medical malpractice. This is a complex and challenging area of law that requires proof that the negligent actions not only took place, but also that they directly resulted in harm being done.
Some examples of situations where medical malpractice may have occurred include birth injuries (brachial palsy, shoulder dystocia, asphyxia and acquired brain injuries, spinal cord or nerve damage), surgical errors (harm caused by performing the wrong operation or operating on the wrong patient or body part, leaving surgical instruments in the body, improper care leading to infection), medication errors (improper doses, types or administration of medicine), and delayed or misdiagnosis due to errors when ordering, reading or performing diagnostic tests and assessments.
In a matter of moments, a medical provider’s negligence can change a patient’s life forever. The pain, suffering and loss they may experience makes seeking and receiving adequate supports and resources so essential for recovery.
