A Hamilton medical malpractice lawyer usually has a difficult job to prove negligence against a healthcare provider. Almost all physicians, nurses, dentists and technicians in Canada are effectively insured by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) which is a mutual non-profit organization set up to cover the healthcare sector against liability for negligence in litigation. The CMPA is not strictly an insurance company but has members who pay a set amount for protection each year which is not dependent on their individual claims record but is set by refence to the sector in which they practice. This means that a regular incompetent suffers no real financial penalty as in the care of most insurers and can continue in practice unscathed notwithstanding error after error unless they fall foul of their relevant professional body and are struck off.

In order to succeed in a negligence compensation, claim for personal injury a Hamilton medical malpractice lawyer must prove negligence, causation and loss. Negligence is shown if the healthcare professionals conduct fell short of the standard achieved by most others practicing in the same field. Causation refers to proving that the negligence actually caused injury and loss which can be tricky bearing in mind that the patient was already ill prior to treatment. Loss refers to provable financial detriment caused directly by the negligent actions which is not to remove to be foreseeable.
