Compensation for Medical Equipment

Our objective is obtaining compensation and financial security for our injured or disabled clients. We are always raising the bar. At trial, we have won some of the largest medical malpractice monetary awards in Canadian history for our clients.

Compensation for Medical Equipment
A person who has been injured due to medical error, negligence, or medical malpractice is entitled to full compensation for his or her injury.

Not only does full compensation include payment for any financial losses or expenses caused by the injury (including loss of income due to inability to work), it also includes remuneration for the purchase of any equipment, goods or services needed to cope with an injury or disability.

At Sommers Roth & Elmaleh medical malpractice is virtually all we do. Our goal is to ensure that no matter what the future may bring, you and your injured or disabled family member will always be secure and have their needs provided for. Our team of exceptional lawyers guide families affected by medical error through some of the most challenging times in their lives, and help these families obtain compensation for everything they need so that they can begin to move forward.

We have been helping families impacted by medical malpractice for more than 40 years, and we know that caring for someone who has been injured due to medical error can be expensive and challenging. Our goal is to ensure that our clients have financial security and do not have to rely upon government subsidies, sponsorship, or other external funding in order to be able to provide the services, therapies, care, equipment and specialized programs that their injured child will need over the course of their lifetime.

      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

      Thank you does not begin to express the depth of gratitude I have for Sommers Roth & Elmaleh Professional Corporation. From the first day I sat in Hilik's office, not once did I feel apprehensive. My concerns and worries were put at ease due to the kindness and compassion of Hilik, Jeremy and Fanny and their relentless persistence to secure my daughter's future. This has been a long but successful endeavor during some difficult times and through it all, the Team has been resilient, informative and were always available.

      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.
