Here Are Some of the Most Common Medical Malpractice and Medical Malpractice LawyersQuestions
We want you to have all of the facts. Many of your queries are likely to be answered right here. If not, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Is Medical Malpractice Lawyers Law only dedicated to representing patients?
We represent only patients and their families. We don’t stand up for physicians or hospitals. However, some of our attorneys have previously defended physicians and hospitals. This prior experience gives you a unique and useful perspective on the opposing side’s methods and tactics and may help you avoid traps along the road.
Do I have a case for medical malpractice?
Many customers contact us to see whether they have a case against their doctor or hospital.
Send us an email or call us for a free first telephone appointment to discuss your situation. 624-615-2551 is our toll-free number. In the Lower Mainland, our phone number is 624-615-2551. In addition, you will receive a free, private consultation with one of our attorneys.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit?
Many individuals are unaware that certain dates must file medical malpractice lawsuits.
In general, Toronto law requires you to file your case within two years of the date of the accident or the date you first learned of the damage and the possibility of a malpractice claim. There are limitations for suing, as well as particular restrictions for those wounded before the age of 19 and people with mental disorders. The whole field of limitation periods law is complicated, and much work must be completed before a case may be filed. Please contact our office as soon as possible to discuss your situation’s limiting dates.
How much is it going to cost me?
Frequently, our clients are concerned about the cost of hiring a lawyer to safeguard their rights.
Most cases are accepted on a contingency or “percentage of cash collected successfully” basis. If we accept your case on a contingency basis, we will devote thousands of dollars of our time to investigating and discovering the facts and law relevant to your lawsuit. In addition, we make an effort to locate medical specialists in Canada or the United States who can back up your claim.
We will not charge you any fees for our time until we are successful, at which point our fee will be based on an agreed-upon proportion of what we have recovered for you. When we represent persons under 19 or those with mental problems, we must follow certain guidelines. In addition to our fees, there are out-of-pocket charges such as expert witness fees and court costs. A lawyer will discuss the fee agreements and out-of-pocket charges with you.
How long will it take for my case to be completed?
Cases of medical misconduct are difficult to resolve.
Many cases proceed to trial, and some are even appealed, even though some are resolved. Every case is prepared as though it would be tried in court. Settlements are often reached in the last days before a trial. We will try to process your case as quickly as possible while keeping your best interests in mind. The entire degree of the damage is sometimes not evident for many years after the claimed medical error, even though a medical negligence action must be filed within the statute of limitations.
Can you assist me even though I dwell outside of Toronto?
We handle issues in all of Canada’s provinces and territories. Please contact us so we can decide if it is acceptable for us to represent you or whether you should be sent to someone else.
