Saskatchewan’s economy is based on agriculture, mining and energy production. This vibrant economy is supported by potash, minerals, and oil & gas. Saskatchewan is known as Canada’s “breadbasket” because it produces almost 30% of Canada’s grain and almost 60% of Canada’s wheat crop. This makes agriculture an important industry in Saskatchewan.
Canada has some of the highest-rated medical services globally, but Saskatchewanians are not exempt from experiencing medical malpractice and negligence in the healthcare sector.
If you or a loved one in Saskatchewan has been injured due to medical malpractice, you might be entitled to financial compensation. Sommers Roth & Elmaleh can help.
Medical Malpractice in Saskatchewan
‘Medical malpractice’ cases are civil claims against doctors, nurses, hospital staff and others in the medical field for their actions leading to medical negligence. This negligence can result from errors made when a patient undergoes diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or general health management.
If you have had any experience with a healthcare professional or provider who failed to give you the adequate care and attention necessary, resulting in injury or death, you have been a victim of medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice claims against nurses, doctors and others in the medical field are filed by patients or the families of those injured or negatively affected by those who provided them with negligent medical care. These medical malpractice claims will generally involve allegations of negligence, breach of contract or breach of fiduciary duty.
Examples of common medical malpractice claims in Saskatchewan can include:
- Misdiagnoses or failure to diagnose a condition;
- Obstetric malpractice, including spina bifida or negligence causing cerebral palsy;
- Failure to properly test;
- Misinterpreting or ignoring lab results;
- Pediatric malpractice involving children or infants;
- Failure to time and treat a condition properly;
- Unnecessary surgery, wrong site surgery or surgical errors;
- Failure to provide the right prescription, administering the wrong medication or dosage;
- Hospital and nursing errors.
In Canada, there are over 100,000 potential medical malpractice claims each year. This number does not include negligent acts committed by doctors who work in private clinics, including chiropractors, dentists and other types of medical professionals.

Spina Bifida Lawyers in Saskatchewan
Spina Bifida can affect your child for the rest of their life. It can cause loss of bladder or bowel control, as well as cognitive issues. Spina Bifida can be detected through ultrasound very early on in pregnancy, and once detected, it can be addressed to decrease the conditions mentioned. If you suppose that your doctor or other healthcare staff did not take the proper precautions, you might have a medical malpractice litigation on your hands.

Hospitals are supposed to be spaces where you feel safe, and where doctors and other healthcare providers are obligated to act in your best interest. Yet, each year, thousands of patients are injured or otherwise seriously affected by medical errors or negligence.
Those patients and their family members deserve justice when they have been affected by hospital error, or any other forms of medical negligence.
