Lawyers

Every year thousands of Canadians are affected by medical malpractice - injuries caused by mistakes made by doctors and hospitals. Our firm advances cases on behalf of those seriously injured by such mistakes.

It's all we do.

70,000 Preventable Medical Injuries Annually

The first national study of patient safety in Canadian hospitals estimates that 7.5% of patients hospitalized in Canada suffered harm from a medical mistake in the course of their medical care. Surgical care accounted for the most errors, followed by medication errors.

A more detailed discussion of this study can be found on this website under the heading Medical Mistakes. The full text of the article can be found on the Canadian Medical Association Journal website: The Canadian Adverse Events Study: the incidence of adverse events among hospital patients in Canada

Settlement in Wai-Ping Litigation

A final settlement has been reached between 225 women, the Ajax-Pickering Hospital and former obstetrician/gynecologist Errol Wai-Ping. The Wai-Ping litigation was the largest mass medical negligence action in Canada. We are honoured to have represented these courageous women and pleased to have played a role obtaining justice and in bringing closure to this difficult period in their lives.
