Vancouver Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Pacific Medical Law is one of the very few law firms in Canada that practice exclusively in the field of plaintiff medical malpractice and birth injury. Representing patients who have been injured as a result of medical negligence is the only work we do.
We have the experience and knowledge necessary to identify the medical and legal issues in your case, and access to experienced medical advisors who can provide the unbiased expert opinions necessary to build a winning case.
We are recognized as leaders in the field of medical malpractice and birth injury. Paul McGivern, Q.C. and Susanne Raab have been selected for inclusion by The Best Lawyers in Canada, the oldest and most respected peer-reviewed publication in the legal profession, as well as by Lexpert, the most comprehensive guide to top ranked legal talent in Canada.
Both Paul McGivern, Q.C. and Susanne Raab have significant past experience as defence counsel in medical malpractice matters, which provides us with unique insight into the potential risks and legal hurdles involved in medical malpractice actions. This helps us be proactive in overcoming or minimizing those risks.
We are frequently invited to chair, organize and/or speak at medical legal conferences in British Columbia and across Canada. We have also published numerous articles and textbook chapters on medical legal issues.
Susanne Raab and Brenda Osmond are also adjunct professors at the UBC Allard School of Law where they teach the medical negligence course to 2nd and 3rd year law students.
