Home to the largest remaining healthy population of American Elms unaffected by Dutch Elm disease, this so-called “Ribbon of Green” is supplemented by a large number of golf courses and winter recreation habitats.

 Our Cases in Edmonton

Errors from medical professionals like doctors and nurses can leave patients with life-long injuries. We trust these experts to provide the best care for us and our families, but when their errors result in significant injuries or complications, patients need to know their options. If the patients need additional treatment or support due to their injuries, they should consult a professional medical malpractice lawyer in Edmonton.

Depending on the case and the injuries, a medical malpractice lawyer can help patients get the compensation they need to move on from the injury and live their lives to the fullest. 

If you have been harmed because a healthcare worker provided inadequate treatment, misdiagnosed your condition, failed to inform you about the risks involved in your treatment, or simply didn’t offer the necessary care, seeking legal advice is crucial.  

At Sommers Roth & Elmaleh, we have decades of experience handling medical malpractice cases in Edmonton and across Canada.

Cerebral Palsy Lawyers in Edmonton

Cerebral Palsy is a condition that occurs in early childhood and can be the result of medical malpractice. Many people believe that it is caused by heredity, whereas, in fact, it is caused by a specific brain injury, which usually occurs at birth. Your doctor or other healthcare professionals may have acted negligently, resulting in this damage.

Hospital Errors in Edmonton

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 errors or other medical negligence.

    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.
