Expert strategies unveiled: Tackling E.R. negligence in medical malpractice

This article was produced in partnership with Bogoroch & Associates LLP

Long delays, great expense, and the approach of the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) make medical malpractice a complex and challenging area for plaintiff-side lawyers.

In an upcoming webinar, Navigating negligence: legal strategies in E.R negligence litigation, attendees will dive into the difficulties in the space, specifically as it relates to negligence stemming from emergency room visits. A grasp of this facet of medical malpractice is crucial for lawyers in Canada due to the profound impact such incidents have on individuals and their families, explains webinar host Richard Bogoroch, founder and managing partner of Bogoroch & Associates LLP.

“Differentiating between delayed diagnoses, missed diagnoses, and failures to diagnose is imperative, as it sheds light on the various forms of medical errors that occur in the E.R.,” he says. “These errors not only harm patients physically and emotionally but also necessitate legal action to seek justice and compensation.”

The webinar aims to equip lawyers with the knowledge and insights necessary to navigate these cases by drawing on real-life cases litigated by Bogoroch & Associates. By dissecting these examples and delving into their intricacies, “attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of the complexities involved and the strategies employed in successful litigation,” says Heidi Brown, partner at the firm and co-host of the webinar.

Given that the CMPA will not settle cases on an economic basis and proceeds to trial if the case is considered defensible, the cost of litigating these matters can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars — a cost which has a direct bearing on access to justice and the willingness of counsel to take on complex, difficult, and costly medical malpractice cases. Lawyers practicing in this area would benefit from the valuable guidance and insights from Bogoroch and Brown, two experts in the field who believe deeply in sharing their knowledge for the betterment of the profession and the client.

“We want to highlight how the dedication of lawyers who practice in this area ensures not only access to justice, but that those with meritorious cases obtain the compensation they need to lead a dignified life,” Bogoroch says.
