MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYERS IN CANADA

One of the Most Experienced Medical Malpractice & Negligence Law Firms in Canada

If you believe you are a victim of medical malpractice, call us. Our goal is your financial security. The results could be life-changing

Medical mistakes and health care negligence can have life-altering consequences for patients and their families. Dealing with the aftermath of a medical error can be emotionally devastating and stressful as victims and their loved ones struggle to cope with their new reality. The financial burdens are often overwhelming.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAW FIRM IN CANADA

Victims of medical malpractice often are never informed that their injury was preventable, or that it should be investigated because they may be entitled to compensation. Many of our clients eventually come to the painful realization that they have a seriously disabled child or family member who will need extensive care, assistance and support throughout the rest of their lives. This is especially true for cases like birth injuries (including brain injury/cerebral palsy), surgical errors, misdiagnosis, or missed diagnoses like cancer. In other cases, the illness or death of a parent and breadwinner puts the family's future in jeopardy.

Medical malpractice lawsuits often involve complex questions of medicine and law. In our 40+ years of medical malpractice litigation, our experience is that patients are often told or led to believe that their condition is genetic, inevitable, or was not caused by medical malpractice. In other cases, our investigation revealed that medical malpractice was covered-up and medical records were falsified, or destroyed. Even friendly or helpful doctors may not give a straight answer about what happened and may not want to suggest that a patient’s condition may have been caused by negligence. A trusted family doctor may be unaware that medical malpractice occurred due to falsified medical records.

In these circumstances, a thorough investigation by an experienced medical malpractice lawyer with in-depth medical knowledge may be warranted.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYERS IN CANADA

Additionally, medical malpractice lawsuits are litigated much differently than other cases, and involve powerful players including hospitals, insurance companies (HIROC), and the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). Malpractice suits are challenging, highly technical, and often take years to resolve. The stakes are enormous. A properly-run case often requires retaining numerous highly-qualified medical experts and we typically retain some of the top medical specialists in the world. It also demands lawyers who understand both the law and the medical science. At Sommers Roth & Elmaleh we often invest hundreds of thousands of dollars in our clients’ cases. For these reasons, medical malpractice claims should be handled by lawyers with in-depth knowledge and extensive medical malpractice experience to compassionately and effectively guide clients through this difficult process. At Sommers Roth & Elmaleh we have this experience which is demonstrated by the sheer number of medical malpractice cases we have successfully litigated. We are frequently mentioned in the News.

Dear Mr Hilik Y. And Jeremy Syrtash. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you and Sommers Roth and Elmaleh Professional Corporation staff for all you have done with respect to my wife case. My wife was a victim of Medical Malpractice after giving birth to our daughter. She become legally disabled both physically and mentally. The entire family devastated emotionally as my wife struggle to cope with the new reality. The case of Medical Malpractice is quite often a complex case to prove. However, due to your strong commitment, knowledge and dedication combined with strong professionalism the case was successfully won after a long arduous fight. The victory would not have been possible without your dedication and thorough research in the implementation of the standards of the Sommers Roth and Elmaleh Professional Corporation. Justice prevailed at last which in turn allowed my vulnerable wife to feel more optimistic about her future and that of our family. The positive outcome of this case has changed our lives forever. It would not have been possible without the excellent representation of Sommers Roth and Elmaleh Professional Corporation and its legal counsel. My wife and I will be deeply grateful for the successful outcome of this case for many years to come. Solomon Regassa

I was in a serious horse accident where the horse was injured and should never have been ridden. The owner of the horse was aware that the horse had chronic arthritis issues and the veterinarians at Guelph had told him the horse could decompensate at any time and could cause serious injury whether being led or ridden and could never be jumped again. The horse had been shown at the grand prix level and the owner had payed quite a bit of money for him. After consulting with several lawyers and having one that did represent me at the discoveries who later quit, Jeremy Syrtash took on the case and followed through with guelph university. That is how we found out that the vets had recommended the above. Without Jeremy's efforts and follow through the case would never have continued on. Because of these efforts the case was successful. Thank you so much Jeremy. You are a dedicated, thorough, excellent lawyer and it's been a pleasure to have you as my lawyer!!

We want to start by saying how much we highly recommend Sommers, Roth and Elmaleh for anyone who is dealing with a situation involving medical malpractice. Hilik and the entire firm have allowed us the opportunity to give our little girl the life she deserves. There is no taking back what happened, but they truly turned such a tragedy into a victory. They fought long and hard, and put forth so much time and effort into making the individuals accountable and responsible for the mistakes that were made. They always showed true compassion for our family, guided us with ease, and supported us through every step. This was such a life changing experience with the firm, and honestly we will always be forever grateful and thankful.
