In May 2012, an Ottawa man and his personal injury lawyer won a 2.2 million dollar malpractice claim for an injury five years ago. Paul Ringer entered Community Hospital of Ottawa in November of 2006 undergoing a prostrate procedure when something went terribly wrong and he suffered an injury to his bladder. As a result of the injury, Ringer lost his bladder and filed a malpractice lawsuit against the hospital and the doctor in charge of his case.

To receive compensation for a medical malpractice claim, you must file your lawsuit in a timely fashion, referred to as a limitation period. According to Canadian law, the limitations period is the amount of time in which you can file your suit. So, if you have been injured due to the negligence of a health care provider, don’t delay in contacting a personal injury lawyer for assistance in filing your personal injury medical malpractice claim.
Medical malpractice is considered a negligence issue. Negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse, dentist, technician, hospital or clinic can be the defendant in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Once your medical malpractice lawyer establishes that negligence has occurred, you must show that you suffered loss and damage as a direct result of some health provider’s negligent act. In addition, it is imperative that you be able to show that your injury is ongoing and could potentially be progressive in nature. This is established with evidence that may include medical reports, expert witness testimony and firsthand accounts of your medical treatment procedures.
