What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical Malpractice is when a doctor or other medical professional – does or omit to do something that causes an injury or some harm to you, the patient. The medical professional’s act or failure to act is called “medical malpractise.”
Like many other people, you may think you have a medical malpractise case if your doctor makes a mistake while treating you. This may or not be true. The fact is, there is a lot more to a medical malpractise case than a patient getting hurt or suffering consequences. The key factors involve showing or proving that what happened to you “yesterday” has an impact on you “today”. That is why you need Baggot Law in Toronto.
The mistake or omission can happen at any time during medical treatment. For example, your doctor may make a mistake diagnosing your illness, or he or she may not give you the proper treatment or medicine for that illness. The key here is the standard of care. This is the generally accepted method or methods used by other medical professionals in the area to treat or care for patients under the same or similar circumstances.
