Examples of 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.

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.
