Ottawa Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Medical malpractice can result in devastating outcomes for individuals and their loved ones. Whether misdiagnosis results in a delay of crucial treatment or negligence during a procedure ends in permanent injuries or even death, malpractice often has far-reaching implications for the victim and their family.
At Tierney Stauffer LLP, our medical malpratice lawyers know how important it is to defend the rights of individuals wronged by medical malpractice. One of the most serious forms of negligence around, it can introduce exorbitant costs and a long, stressful road to recovery for the victims and their loved ones who experience the hardship with them. With the lives of patients literally in the hands of trusted medical professionals, there is no reason that proactive measures should not be taken to protect everyone involved.
Causes of Medical Malpractice
Doctors, dentists, nurses and hospital staff each have the responsibility of caring for the health of their patients to the best of their abilities. If they do not apply their best judgment and keep the welfare of those they care for in mind, in every case, then the results can be devastating.
Unfortunately, some doctors do not take the proper precautions and apply the adequate level of care when treating patients – in other words, the “professional” aspect of a role as a medical professional is not taken seriously in such instances. A doctor, nurse or another staff member’s negligent actions can lead to additional time, expense and stress for the patient and their family, needlessly jeopardizing their well-being, safety and way of life through sheer carelessness. Complications can include delayed or lost employment, reduced income and financial instability, time away from friends and loved ones, detracted quality of life and, in extreme cases, the lives of patients themselves.
This shouldn’t ever happen. After all, we trust and rely on medical professionals to be professional in every case.
Healthcare Professionals are Held to a Strict Standard of Care
Doctors, dentists and hospitals are responsible for making sure they perform their duties at a reasonable standard of care – there is no striving for the bare minimum when lives are at risk. A patient’s health shouldn’t be made worse, and medical professionals are required to comply with strict codes of conduct to ensure their service quality remains consistent and in-line with established expectations.
