As one of Calgary's premier personal injury law firms, the team here at Cuming & Gillespie helps victims recover from all kinds of injuries incurred as a result of all manner of hazards, accidents, and reckless or negligent behavior. From car accidents to unsafe conditions in areas accessible to the public, there are many incidents that can result in an injury and potentially in a personal injury lawsuit.
Of all types of personal injury cases, broadly speaking, medical malpractice cases are easily among the most complex and are often the most egregious and trying for our clients. A missed diagnosis, improper course of treatment, or instance of severe medical negligence can have devastating and often lifelong repercussions, and can even result in wrongful deaths. our medical professionals are supposed to be amongst our most trusted advisors and most highly educated and expert professionals—a status that is bolstered by the fact that the majority of Calgary's physicians, nurses, and other medical practitioners more than live up to the expectations. This makes it all the more emotionally and psychologically harmful when negligence on the part of a practitioner or institution causes us significant injury.
Especially when you are suffering from persistent and possibly prolonged and worsened medical problems, the added stress of learning that you were mistreated can seem like too much to bear. For some, the prospect of a legal battle to redress the wrongs that were committed and seek equitable compensation for injuries is overwhelming at first. You may not know where to turn for the medical let alone legal assistance you need to truly regain control of your health care, your body, and your life.
You don't have to face this situation alone. Partnering with the right Calgary medical malpractice lawyer can help you better understand your circumstances and your available options. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer will also directly remove as much of your workload as possible when it comes to dealing with the improper medical care you received and its ongoing effects on your health.
Medical injuries can be expensive, not just in terms of direct medical expenses and the cost of ongoing care for what may be chronic symptoms, but also for any direct lost wages and diminished earning capacity due to your required care and any chronic permanent debilitations. Compensation for pain and suffering and reduced quality of life can also be sought in many Calgary medical malpractice cases—when your career, your family, and your life has been disrupted due to outright negligence on the part of a medical professional or institution who was trusted to know better, you deserve to be compensated in full.
A dedicated Calgary personal injury law firm with years of experience handling medical malpractice cases can help you fight for what you deserve.
