Wagner’s – Your medical malpractice lawyers – Doing Our Best To Serve Residents of Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada

We place great trust in medical professionals and the medical system to provide care in a way that promotes our safety and well-being. But sometimes healthcare professionals make errors that can be devastating. A physician, nurse, or other medical professional who acts in a negligent manner can jeopardize the health and safety of a patient and cause life-altering injuries or even death. Medical malpractice cases are technical, complex, and require legal and medical expertise.

The medical malpractice team at Wagners is experienced in this specialized area. Our lawyers offer compassion and quality representation to patients who have been harmed by medical negligence throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

If you or a family member have been the victim of medical malpractice, we will listen carefully and determine if there is basis for advancing a negligence claim. This determination usually requires a medical opinion from another health professional.
