Pathology Errors Class Action Lawsuits

Class actions involving hospitals have become more prevalent in recent years. Notably, proceedings concerning pathology errors have been commenced in Ontario, Nova Scotia and other provinces. Alleged cases of improper diagnosis, misread slides and delayed treatment have affected many thousands of individuals, causing them significant stress, worry and physical harm.

At Wagners, we stand on the side of patients who have suffered the ill effects of pathology errors. Class action lawsuits involving many patients ensure that even those with a small
claim have equal access to justice.

Ensuring Medical Professionals Meet The Standard

Both hospitals and the people they employ — physicians, pathologists, radiologists, anaesthetists and nurses — are expected to maintain a reasonable standard of care when dealing with patients. Hospitals must ensure that those they hire for certain jobs have proper credentials. If problems are found with the standard of care provided to patients, the hospitals or health authorities must take immediate and appropriate action.

Medical professionals employed by a hospital have a duty to ensure that their work product and abilities meet the expected standard. All medical professionals should be competent and appropriately investigate and diagnose patient conditions. Medical professionals must take all necessary steps to ensure that they provide the most effective care to their patients. If they fail to do so, the law provides patients with legal recourse.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
