How is malpractice handled?

I have no idea.

Google popped up a whole lot of stuff including this one from a law firm so it might have a bit of bias?


Are Canadian Medical Malpractice Claims Different Than in the United States?


In a word; yes.

Lot’s of people have read about large jury awards for personal injury claims in the United States. Sometimes the American jury awards seem to be out of proportion to the injury.

In Canada, court awards are much lower than awards for similar injuries from courts in the United States. Cases that might be successful in the U.S. are simply not economically feasible to pursue in Canada.

Nova Scotia also has some of the most conservative (lowest) awards in Canada for compensation for personal injury claims.
