Sommers Roth & Elmaleh: Helping Families Affected by Medical Malpractice

At Sommers Roth & Elmaleh, we have more than 40 years of experience representing children and families who have been affected by medical error and negligence. Unlike many other personal injury firms, medical malpractice is all we do. That is why we are a medical malpractice law firm.

Award Winning Legal Representation

We have set ground-breaking legal precedents and have consistently been at the forefront of developments in medical malpractice litigation. Many of our clients are referred to us by former clients, other lawyers, judges, doctors, and others in the health-care field.

We are regularly recognized by our peers as being among the best medical malpractice lawyers in Toronto, and as top medical malpractice lawyers in Ontario and Canada. This year is the 21st consecutive year that a lawyer at the firm has been Lexpert Ranked since the Lexpert Directory was first launched in 1997.

Our Commitment to Our Clients and the Disability Community

In addition to representing injured patients in complex medical malpractice claims and regularly challenging the medical profession to uphold its standards and quality of care to the public, we have a history of working with the disability community through events such as the Abilities Expo, the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy, Easter Seals Ontario and a number of others.

Our involvement with these organizations reflects our dedication to working with and changing the lives of children and families affected by disability. We bring the same passion that we have for the law to giving back to the community.

What Our Clients Have Been Saying About Us

Our commitment to helping families is a central guiding philosophy of our firm. We keep in touch with many of our clients after their cases are over and are lucky to now call many of them friends.

Our clients realize that working with us often drastically benefits them as they prepare to live with serious and life-altering injuries and conditions. We regularly receive thank you cards and other messages of gratitude.

A sampling of what our clients have been saying about us includes:

“Our son suffered a brain injury at birth which resulted in a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. Suspecting medical negligence, we sought legal advice. We were referred to Sommers and Roth and we were not disappointed. Hilik and his team took our case to court and achieved an outcome that has forever changed our lives. As a result of the incredible work of Hilik & Sommers and Roth, we now have the financial resources to truly take care of our son. He can receive all the therapies and educational support he needs, to optimize his potential…despite his diagnosis. We purchased a home and a wheelchair accessible van, so that our son is comfortable. His financial needs will be taken care of for life, which is a relief beyond words. We are forever grateful to Hilik and his team!”

“Thank You Hilik and everyone at Sommers & Roth for helping our son JP. For so many years we never had answers as to what happened to JP when he was born. But now we do. When no one was able to help our son, you took our case on and was prepared to spend so much time, money and effort to help JP. You won the case for us and now we know that JP will be taken care of for the rest of his life. You and your team at Sommers & Roth have changed our lives forever.  God Bless You!”

“The professionalism that our family received at Sommers & Roth was second to none. My wife and I brought a complex malpractice case that a number of other law firms told us was unwinnable and Sommers & Roth won it. When you choose this firm you choose experience, expertise and, most importantly, compassion. Thank you for changing our family’s life for the better. We highly recommend their services to anyone in need.”

“Dear Hilik, I wanted to express my deepest gratitude to you for all you have done with respect to my daughter’s case. I wisely put my daughter’s destiny in your hands, and you helped open the lock to her now bright future. Words could never express my appreciation; you have impacted our lives forever!!!!”

We look forward to continuing to serve the community and helping clients for many more years to come.

    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.
