EXPERIENCE – Oatley Vigmond’s Greatest Asset

Whether we are in the hospital for an emergency or something more routine, we entrust our health to the medical professionals on staff and rely on them to do their best for us. However, hospital malpractice is sadly a very real problem we all face.

Not all incidents or bad outcomes are a result of hospital malpractice. However, if you suspect the hospital’s doctors, nurses or other staff did not do everything in their power, it is important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.

For your doctor or hospital’s mistake to be considered negligent, their failure must be proven to be below the standard of care expected of a reasonably competent doctor or other health care professional. It also needs to be proven that the negligence was the probable cause of the poor outcome.

In Ontario, you can seek compensation for hospital malpractice and sue for damages. The law also allows the family members of a person who has died to sue the hospital for damages. However, healthcare organizations are protected by the CPMA.

At Oatley Vigmond, we are highly experienced with hospital malpractice litigation. After more than 40 years of success in this field, we have distinguished ourselves as one of Ontario’s leading hospital malpractice firms. In that time, we have secured landmark settlements, and made life better for personal injury victims.

Our team is made up of lawyers who have been approved as Certified Litigation Specialists by the Law Society of Upper Canada. This body governs lawyers in Ontario, enforcing high standards of learning, competence and professional conduct.

Our lawyers and support staff work side-by-side to offer the highest level of legal guidance to see your case through to a successful settlement or outcome. Over the course of a lawsuit, we develop a special relationship with our clients; many of whom have been victims of hospital malpractice. We encourage you to listen to what our clients have to say about our lawyers and the Oatley Vigmond approach.

RISK-FREE REPRESENTATION – Oatley Vigmond’s Promise

Hospital malpractice takes a heavy toll on its victims and their families. Beyond the physical and emotional impacts, the financial repercussions of a doctor’s misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose can be life-changing.

Most of our clients require hospitalization and rehabilitation, and they are often left unable to return to work. The corresponding stress can have drastic effects on their quality of life. Paying for rehabilitation and intensive care is hard enough without having to plan financially for a life without employment income.

Unfortunately, compensation is not always easy to get. Most doctors are protected by a specialized medical defence organization called the Canadian Medical Protective Association. The CMPA defends doctors who are alleged to have been negligent in caring for a patient. Lawyers who specialize in hospital malpractice are familiar with the CMPA and the evidence required in bringing a successful claim.

At Oatley Vigmond, we do not believe in adding financial pressure during these difficult times. We offer free consultations and do not charge for unsuccessful claims. This policy allows us to put qualified, risk-free representation in everyone’s reach.

We encourage you to listen to what our clients have to say about the lawyers, accident benefits specialists, and care teams that form the heart of the Oatley Vigmond approach.

Call 1-888-662-2481 to speak with a lawyer, or visit our contact page for a no-risk consultation, and don’t pay until your claim is successful.
