Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Case? Do I Need a Lawyer?
If a medical professional such as a doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, chiropractor, dentist, acupuncturist or massage therapist has caused you injuries because of their negligence, you may have a claim for medical malpractice. Establishing malpractice is usually a costly and lengthy process, even in situations where it appears the medical professional was clearly negligent.

In order for a malpractice claim to be successful, you must show that not only was a mistake made, but that the medical professional’s actions fell below the reasonable range of treatment expected of them. You must also show that their unreasonable conduct caused you direct harm, and that you would not have suffered the harm if the medical professional had provided appropriate care.
