Led by Duncan Embury, one of Canada’s most experienced and well-respected medical malpractice attorneys, the medical malpractice group has more than 20 years of experience defending clients’ rights and ensuring they receive a full and fair compensation for their injuries.

Medical malpractice cases are complex, challenging, and require an intricate understanding of both legal and medical processes. Neinstein’s medical malpractice lawyers will stand beside you through every step of your journey to recovery, giving you the best chance of receiving fair compensation.


What is medical malpractice?

Canadians are lucky to have access to a world-class universal healthcare system staffed by excellent doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals. Healthcare providers have a responsibility to deliver a reasonable standard of care to their patients. When a patient is injured by a negligent act or omission outside that reasonable standard of care, their healthcare practitioner may have committed medical malpractice.

Each medical malpractice case is unique, and how much compensation you are entitled to depends on a number of factors, such as the type of injury and extent of care you will require. Medical errors can produce highly damaging injuries which may affect every aspect of your life. The aim of a medical malpractice claim is to recuperate what you have lost as a result of your injuries. Your compensation can be quantified through lost wages, expenses relating to your care, and the emotional and physical pain and suffering you have experienced.

If you have been injured by the negligent acts or omissions of a healthcare provider, you should immediately contact a medical malpractice lawyer.

Why do I need a specialized medical malpractice lawyer?

In Canada, few lawyers specialize in medical malpractice lawsuits. The length, cost, and complexity of medical malpractice cases means very few lawyers are equipped to adequately litigate them. A specialized medical malpractice lawyer should guide you through every step of the legal process, from determining whether you have a viable claim to assessing what sort of compensation you and your family are entitled to.

We will finance your legal claim until your case is successfully resolved, and never demand upfront fees or hourly charges.

We were referred to Duncan through a relative who happens to be a lawyer and has knowledge of the trauma that we were experiencing at the time. Our daughter was born with a traumatic brain injury at delivery and we were clueless about our options but felt we needed to speak to someone and at least explore different possibilities.

Duncan was the second lawyer we met with but immediately felt he would be the best person to represent us. We could tell from the beginning he had immense medical knowledge because of his many years of experiences as a medical malpractice lawyer and we connected with Duncan as a person and a parent; he could relate to us and very personable.

Throughout the four year journey we embarked on Duncan became more of a family member than a just a lawyer. It was an extremely complex process that needed not only legal expertise but also leadership and Duncan always put our family first.

One of the most important attributes that Duncan possesses outside of his legal skills was his ability to understand our family dynamics and keep us informed at every step of the way.

This case was literally our life for over four years. The stress was absolutely enormous and Duncan advocated for us as if he was advocating for his own family. Too many times he had to deal with not only an impossibly frustrating defense counsel but also our short tempers, frustrations and fears. He balanced all this and kept us focused on what was important while he took care of the legal process, which he knew inside out. My wife and I would reassure ourselves that we trust Duncan and his amazing team and that literally got us through some very trying times.

In the end Duncan not only got us the result that was needed and deserved but he did so with putting our family first and in our fragile mental and emotional state we could not have asked for anything more. It’s great to know that we now have the ability to take care of our daughter and her future needs.

I would recommend Duncan without even a moment’s hesitation to anyone that needs expert legal advice and guidance. He is Master of his craft that truly cares about the families he represents.
