Why You Need a Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Toronto
Medical malpractice cases are extremely difficult to litigate. Firstly, the law in Ontario requires that the facts of your case meet a defined legal standard. Secondly, you will require the favourable opinion of a highly regarded medical-legal expert in the field. Furthermore, this type of claim is time limited, which is why it is important that you consult one of our specialized Medical Malpractice Lawyers as soon as possible. Himelfarb Proszanski has the expertise and the experience necessary to successfully navigate this challenging area of the law, and build a winning case so that you get the compensation that you deserve. That is the HimPro Advantage™.
What Your Medical Malpractice Lawyer Will Do
If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, or if you and your loved ones have suffered the loss of a family member due to medical malpractice, you must retain a skilled Medical Malpractice lawyer with expertise in the field. Himelfarb Proszanski has extensive experience in successfully litigating claims against doctors, nurses, dentists, technicians, chiropractors and other health care providers. Himelfarb Proszanski will build your case and ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. Compensation includes pain and suffering, financial losses and compensation for past and future health care expenses.
Your Medical Malpractice lawyer meets with you and provides a thorough review based on the facts of your case. You need this legal expertise in order to determine whether you have a viable cause of action against the health care provider. You may have suffered a bad outcome following a medical procedure or treatment but it still may not meet the legal test. The law in Ontario is clear. In order to establish negligence, the failure of the health care provider must have fallen below the standard of care expected of a reasonably competent health care provider. That negligence also needs to be established as the probable cause of the bad outcome. Your Medical Malpractice lawyer will undertake this critical review of your case, and provide you with an opinion as to whether your case meets the required legal standard.
Himelfarb Proszanski has access to a network of the best doctors available in Canada. Your Medical Malpractice Lawyer will engage this network and ensure that the best experts are retained in order to provide the required medical-legal expert opinion to build your winning case. This is just part of the HimPro Advantage™.
