Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Halifax, Serving Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Beyond

As a society, we put great trust in medical professionals to help us to get better; we expect them to meet the high standards and professionalism that are required. Medical professionals must administer medical care in a way that promotes a patient’s safety and well-being. A physician, nurse or other medical professional who acts in a negligent manner can jeopardize the health and safety of a patient and cause life-altering injuries.

Wagners’ medical malpractice lawyers in Halifax represents accident victims in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. This practice area of our Halifax law firm focuses on those who have suffered a wide range of serious medical injuries or death. Our lawyers advocate for you, regardless of the complexity of the situation. We understand the seriousness of being harmed through medical malpractice and your right to pursue a claim against those who harmed you or a loved one. Our lawyers will fight to hold doctors and hospitals accountable to the highest standards of care and to pursue your claim with skill, experience and compassion.

Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, arises when your healthcare provider, including nurses, hospital staff and physicians, fail to follow the proper medical procedures which leads to injury, harm and damage.

A successful medical malpractice case requires that the patient – the plaintiff – prove the following:

1. A physician-patient relationship, which leads to a duty of care;

2. Breach of the standard of care;

3. Causation (the breach of the standard or care caused the damages); and

4. Damages

As patients, we place our trust in our physicians and the medical system. However, substandard medical care can cause serious and lasting injury to a patient, such as:

  • Cerebral palsy (CP).
  • Erb’s palsy.
  • Shoulder dystocia.
  • Infant brain damage and hypoxic brain injury.
  • Surgical errors causing nerve or organ damage and malfunction.
  • Quadriplegia or paraplegia.
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer, stroke, infection or heart attack
  • Death.

Medical malpractice cases are complex and require legal expertise. The Medical Malpractice team at Wagners is experienced and provides compassionate and quality representation to patients who have been harmed by medical negligence throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador.

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!
