Have you or a loved one suffered harm due to the negligence of a health practitioner?
Medical malpractice occurs when an individual suffers harm due to the negligence, errors or omissions of a health practitioner, including doctors, anaesthesiologists, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, and other health practitioners. As Canadians, we enjoy a safe and robust medical system; however, mistakes still can and do happen. Unfortunately, sometimes those mistakes result in significant harm to a patient, such as severe injury or even death.
Medical negligence can occur in many forms, including:
- Misdiagnosis, late diagnosis or failure to diagnose
- Surgical error
- Birth trauma
- Anaesthetic error
- Hospital negligence
- Pharmaceutical error
- Medical device failure

When you have a legal matter and need to hire a lawyer, you may be able to pay for these services on a contingency basis. That means you only pay legal fees if you receive money because your case wins or you get a negotiated settlement. Please see our Contingency Fee section for answers to frequently asked questions and see each lawyer’s individual biography for their maximum contingency fee rates.
