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.
