We act for people injured due to the negligence of doctors and health-care professionals in BC. We also act in cases involving trauma to infants during birth. These types of cases are extremely challenging and many lawyers will not consider taking them.
In medical negligence cases there are usually two main issues.
- The first is consent. In most situations, a doctor or health-care worker cannot perform a medical procedure on a person without the person's informed consent.
- The second issue is whether the doctor or health-care practitioner carried out the procedure in question in a manner consistent with the standard of care to be expected of a reasonably competent doctor or health-care practitioner.
If you believe you have been injured due to the negligence of a doctor or health-care worker, contact us for a free initial consultation. We act for people who have been injured by medical negligence on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay legal fees unless we recover damages for you.
