Medical Malpractice Claims
Medical malpractice most often occurs where a physician acts negligently while a patient is in their care. Malpractice can occur from the negligent action of a physician or by their failure to appropriately take actions to treat the patient. For example, a health care provider may be negligent where there is a failure to properly investigate a patient's condition in order to diagnose them within a reasonable time. Another example is where a patient does not provide informed consent to a medical procedure, which unfortunately results in some form of harm or injury caused to the patient. Physicians must disclose any material risks involved in a treatment. The Supreme Court of Canada explained, as outlined by Chief Justice Laskin, "What the doctor knows or should know that the particular patient deems relevant to a decision whether to undergo prescribed treatment goes equally to his duty of disclosure as do the material risks recognized as a matter of required medical knowledge."
