What is Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice lawyer New BrunswickMedical malpractice claims occur when a doctor or other medical professional makes a mistake that results in injury or loss. Hospitals can also be responsible for negligence that results in injuries. If you have been injured as a result of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Medical malpractice claims can be a complex area of law but Melanson Law has over 35 years of experience in medical malpractice claims in New Brunswick. We have represented clients who have suffered malpractice injuries from medical practitioners such as doctors, surgeons, and dentists. Our personal injury lawyers are trained in trauma-informed practices to best support you throughout the claims process.  

Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can happen when a doctor or other medical professional makes a mistake that results in injury or loss. Not every error meets the definition of medical malpractice. The mistake must fall below the standard expected of the doctor or medical professional. 

Some examples of medical malpractice can include: 

  • the result of a failure to diagnose
  • a misdiagnosis
  • misreading laboratory results
  • unnecessary surgery
  • surgical errors
  • improper medication 
  • not taking appropriate patient history 
  • poor aftercare

A medical malpractice claim can also occur if: 

  • the doctor or medical professional did not properly explain the risks of the treatment or procedure
  • the doctor did not get proper informed consent

Often, these errors can result in horrific consequences. Part of establishing a medical malpractice claim is linking the doctor’s negligence with the harm or damage caused. A claim for damages for medical malpractice can include compensation for: 

  • expenses for medication and treatment 
  • past and future loss of income
  • general damages for pain and suffering
  • loss of valuable services
  • future cost of care
  • and more

Why Hire a Medical Malpractice Lawyer in New Brunswick

The rules and laws around medical malpractice claims differ from province to province. For instance, even though Nova Scotia and New Brunswick share a provincial border, the medical malpractice laws can vary between these two provinces. Hiring a lawyer familiar with the relevant law concerning medical malpractice in New Brunswick is essential. 

If you think you may have a medical malpractice claim, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. The early preservation and collection of evidence are often crucial for these types of claims. 

Securing expert opinions for medical malpractice claims is also usually necessary. These opinions can be critical for establishing the standards that a medical professional has to meet, to prove that the mistake or error caused the injury or harm, and to emphasize the extent of the injury or harm. Hiring a lawyer in New Brunswick who has a good working relationship with these experts is vital.
