When a medical professional in the Calgary area causes you unnecessary harm or injury due to their negligence or recklessness, you suffer more than the physical trauma of a prolonged illness or additional symptoms. You suffer a lack of trust in the medical community that can often be just as hard to recover from.
As Calgary’s premier plaintiff-only medical malpractice law firm, we see the effects of this lost trust every day, and we fully understand where it comes from. While feelings of anger, resentment, and suspicion are normal and understandable, though, they won’t help you get better and they can often hold you back from healing as quickly and completely as you’re able.
Though medical malpractice is unfortunately common on a city- and nation-wide basis, the vast majority of Calgary physicians and patients will go their entire lives without a serious medical malpractice injury.
That might come as small consolation to those individuals and families negatively affected by an egregious case of malpractice, but it should help reassure everyone involved that they can and will receive quality medical care from well-trained and conscientious medical providers.
Seeing doctors and following their recommended courses of treatment are important following an instance of medical malpractice, from both a medical and legal standpoint, so don’t let your mistrust get in the way of your recovery.
If you or a family member has been seriously injured due to a medical professional or institution’s negligence, you’re entitled to compensation for your added costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Get the help you deserve and contact our office today.
