Medical treatment providers including doctors and nurses, as well as dentists, pharmacists or hospitals, are required to ensure that you receive appropriate medical care. Cases arise where treatment providers fall below the standard of care expected of them, and a person suffers an injury or even death as a result. In such circumstances, you may have a claim against the medical provider who failed to provide adequate care. This kind of claim is known as a “medical malpractice claim”.
Cases of this nature include, but are not limited to:
- a failure or delay in diagnosing a medical condition;
- the prescription of an unsafe drug;
- failure to properly inform of the risks associated with a particular procedure, or drug;
- the use of defective medical equipment and/or devices
