Serving the Greater Toronto Area and Ontario
Surgeries are happening all the time in Ontario hospitals. In fact, it is estimated that there are as many as 2.4 million surgical procedures performed in Canada every year.
Although the vast majority of surgeries are successfully performed with no complications, every so often something can go wrong.
It would be devastating to learn that your loved one is in the ICU instead of the recovery room after a surgery because something unexpected occurred. When a person suffers major disability or death after routine surgery it is perfectly reasonable to question whether there was surgical negligence that may have contributed to the terrible outcome.
Every surgery, surgeon and surgical complication is different. In order to get the best advice, you need to speak with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who understands both the medical and legal side to your potential lawsuit.
Toronto medical malpractice lawyer Paul Cahill has significant experience representing patients in lawsuits against surgeons for surgical errors. Paul was lead counsel on a successful trial against a surgeon for causing nerve damage during a urological surgery. The trial decision was reported at O'Neill-Renouf v. Ibrahim, 2019 ONSC 4369 (CanLII).
