Our Firm Handles Medical Malpractice Claims in Ajax, Ontario
Medical malpractice lawsuits are not easy to win, for a number of reasons. Because they often involve such large sums of money, defendants are highly motivated to push back against claims. They also tend to have a lot of money at their disposal to hire legal counsel.
Medical malpractice laws are also complex. A technicality or loophole can swing the outcome of a claim in one party’s favor or the other.
A medical malpractice lawyer serving Ajax from Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you pursue damages related to your medical malpractice injury. If you enlist our services, we will:
The strength of your medical malpractice claim hinges on its evidence. Without compelling proof of the defendant’s wrongdoing, it is difficult to win a claim, much less one that pays a substantial amount in damages.
Our staff may be able to collect the evidence we need to build a thorough and persuasive claim. We may use expert testimony to draw attention to deficiencies in the care that you received which caused or contributed to your injury. Other evidence we may use includes the following and more:
- Medical exams from other providers
- Photographic and video evidence
- Testimony from eyewitnesses
- Statements from other medical providers
- Statements from the defendant
- Expert witness testimony
The burden of gathering evidence should not be on you alone. Our team will take on this task for you.

The Legal Process of a Medical Malpractice Claim
To file a successful medical malpractice claim, a medical malpractice lawyer serving Ajax needs to establish four conditions. They are:
The Provider Owed You a Duty of Care
First, we have to establish that the defendant owed you a legal obligation to act in your interest and not act in a manner that caused you harm. All doctors have a duty of care when it comes to the patients they treat. This duty extends to anyone in the doctor’s employ as well as to the facility where the doctor practices.
The Provider Did Not Uphold Their Duty of Care
Next, we must demonstrate that the doctor failed to uphold their duty of care to you. We may make this case by drawing a contrast between your doctor or provider’s actions and what would have been expected of another physician in the same position. The testimony of an expert witness may help us strengthen this claim, if necessary.
You Suffered Injuries as a Result
If we can establish a clear breach of duty of care, we must present evidence to establish a cause-and-effect relationship between this breach of duty of care and your injuries.
You Incurred Economic and Noneconomic Damages
If we are able to establish the above tenets, we may be able to determine a value for your damages. Damages may include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Possible Types of Actions That Result in Medical Malpractice
Some types of negligent actions that can result in a medical malpractice case include the following:
- Inadequate patient care
- Wrong prescription dosage or type
- Incorrect surgery
- Retained surgical instrument
- Failure in re-diagnosis
- Incorrect referral or consultation
- Miscommunication or lack of communication with other physicians
- Failure to protect or warn third parties
- Substandard treatment
- Failure to report abuse
These are not the only wrongful actions for which you could pursue a claim.
If you lost a loved one due to the actions of a hospital’s staff or physician, we may be able to help you find solace by pursuing monetary compensation. You have the right to pursue compensation through Part V of the Ontario Family Law Act, a statute that regulates the rights of spouses and dependents in a wrongful death claim. The compensation may include expenses that the deceased individual could have claimed if they were alive. These expenses, referred to as economic or noneconomic losses, include some of the following:
- Funeral costs
- Loss of companionship
- Retroactive fees for medical treatment, hospital stay, and/or prescriptions
