Burnaby Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When medical malpractice occurs, holding health care providers accountable for their acts or omissions is not only beneficial for the victim – it may help to protect future patients from similar harms. Many types of malpractice are patently obvious: a surgeon who operates on the wrong body part, a physician who misdiagnoses cancer for another ailment, delaying life-saving treatments, or administering the wrong medication. However, there are other situations where medical negligence is not so cut-and-dry. For instance, you suffer horrible complications after a surgery that carried high risks of serious injury, which you were not adequately warned about.

Since 1959, Preszler Injury Lawyers has fought aggressively for victims’ rights. If you or a family member were injured and suspect malpractice is to blame, we encourage you to reach out for a free consultation. Our Burnaby personal injury lawyers are here to help, and provide tenacious advocacy on your behalf.  We are a medical malpractice law firm with an established track record of success in handling complicated cases.

Deadlines for seeking legal redress

If you believe that your situation warrants legal action, it is important to speak with a medical malpractice lawyer at Preszler Injury Lawyers immediately as there are strict deadlines for bringing a lawsuit in British Columbia.

If you are suing a medical practitioner — a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or registered health care provider – or medical clinic or hospital, you generally have two years from the date of the injury to file a claim. The Limitations Act is designed to start the litigation process as soon as a reasonable person would have discovered they were injured due to a medical provider’s actions or failure to act. There are some exceptions to this deadline for persons under the age of 19 and individuals who suffer a disability.

Don’t delay and jeopardize your rights to legal recourse; reach out for a private consultation with Preszler Injury Lawyers.
