Coquitlam Medical Malpractice Lawyer

No one really likes going to the doctor, and the last thing you want to worry about is your physician or surgeon making a mistake. While a bad outcome doesn’t mean medical malpractice occurred, careless errors happen every day in the health care profession. In some cases, they can be considered medical malpractice, which is when a doctor, nurse, or medical provider departs from the professional standard of care.

A hospital or medical provider’s action or failure to act that causes a patient to suffer injury can give rise to a viable claim. However, this type of litigation is notoriously labour-intensive, and one that is best undertaken by a qualified medical malpractice law firm.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our Coquitlam personal injury lawyers have ample experience handling complex malpractice claims. We represent patients and their families and fight for the most favourable outcome possible.

When you need someone to protect your interests and provide sage guidance throughout every phase of the legal process, you can depend on Preszler Injury Lawyers. We have the resources to secure independent medical opinions and compelling evidence for your claim.

Time limits for bringing a medical malpractice suit

In British Columbia, persons affected by medical malpractice have just two years from the date of the injury or the date the injury was discovered to file suit. There are exceptions made for individuals with mental impairments as well as malpractice victims who are under the age of 19 at the time of injury. Because of the lengthy investigations needed to prevail in a medical malpractice claim, it is imperative to seek legal counsel as quickly as possible.

Compassionate, dedicated legal representation

When the medical professionals whom you trusted with your health and your life have – through carelessness or negligence — caused illness and suffering, the law affords remedies for seeking compensation. The Coquitlam personal injury lawyers at Preszler Injury Lawyers are dedicated to supporting our clients through this unimaginable time. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, any number of licensed health care providers may be named in your suit. Potential defendants may include: physicians, obstetricians, surgeons, hospitals, nurses, pediatricians, chiropractors, midwives, and dentists, to name a few.

No legal fees unless we secure compensation

Malpractice claims are expensive to mount, requiring substantial resources beyond the means of most Coquitlam families who are already struggling with finances. Please keep in mind that Preszler Injury Lawyers works on contingency, meaning there are no fees until a settlement or verdict is won.
