If you feel you have been affected by the negligence of a healthcare professional, contact a medical malpractice lawyer to weigh all your options and make an informed decision.

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to meet the standard of care and causes harm, injury or death to a patient. However, not all medical injuries are considered medical malpractice; the emphasis of malpractice is on the practitioner’s negligence to provide standard care. To pursue a medical malpractice claim in Ontario, you need to prove the medical practitioner(s) failed to provide you with the reasonably expected standard of care under the treatment circumstances, and that this failure was the cause of your injury and damages.

Medical malpractice can happen in any healthcare setting, such as at-home nursing, emergency rooms, hospitals, urgent care centres, and walk-in clinics. It can be from both an action, such as premature discharge or improper medication and dosage, or not taking action when needed, including disregarding patient history or missing a diagnosis.

Medical malpractice is a complex and highly litigious area of law. If you were injured in an emergency or medical setting and cannot get back to work, you may qualify for financial compensation in lieu of past and future pay loss. Our Lawyers are experienced and have successfully secured judgments in the Superior Court and the Ontario Court of Appeal. If you feel you have been affected by the negligence of a healthcare professional, contact Leone Murray LLP.
