Compassionate yet strong in cases of medical malpractice and medical negligence.

When you or your loved one has a health issue, you turn to doctors or other healthcare professionals for advice and treatment. You rely upon them to give you full information, advice and appropriate treatment.

Unfortunately, doctors or health professionals do not always provide the level of care and treatment expected of them. Even the most trusted and well-respected doctor or healthcare professional can make a mistake. This is called medical malpractice or medical negligence.

Medical malpractice or medical negligence cases may include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Late diagnosis
  • Surgical error
  • Birth trauma
  • Anaesthesia errors
  • Hospital negligence

We understand how frightening and difficult a medical malpractice injury can be. The Legate & Associates team is experienced in all aspects of medical malpractice litigation. We deal with complex legal, factual and medical issues daily. We also maintain an extensive medical library and are continually accumulating knowledge to help you recover full and fair compensation.

Medical malpractice litigation is complex, so we encourage our clients to carefully weigh the costs and benefits of proceeding with a case.

You can take comfort in knowing that we have your best interests at heart and we will be truthful about the potential for success in your case.

If you have been injured while receiving medical care or treatment, contact us to book a free first consultation. At this first meeting, we will review with you in detail how you were injured and how the law will potentially apply in your case. Our goal is to give you solid information so you can make an educated decision about proceeding.

My son and I have been involved with Barb and her team for a while now. I came to her not knowing where to turn or what to expect. From our first to our last meeting, numerous phone calls, emails, etc., we have been treated with the utmost kindness, respect, compassion and sincerity. In this situation, I felt totally OUT of my control.

Barb made me feel IN control! Always a part of things. Never were we made to feel like we were asking too many questions or asking 'silly' questions. I believe when deciding whether or not to pursue something of this magnitude, this is of tremendous importance. From the receptionist who greeted us, to meetings with Barb or her staff, we have always been made to feel welcome, and comfortable.

I can honestly say, with all my heart, that Barb and the members of her team that I have dealt with, personally, through the years, have been wonderful! Thanks to them, my son won't have that day-to-day financial burden that can make a challenging life that much MORE of a challenge. He will have peace of mind and security. Of course, the burden that I feel lifted from my mind goes without saying really. Unimaginable! Peace of mind goes a long way these days. My son has that now. He always will have that now!! Thank you to Barb and everyone at Legate & Associates. You're angels here on Earth! God Bless, - LA
