Medical Malpractice

Tyr represents patients in complex medical malpractice claims.

Led by Pinta Maguire, Tyr's lawyers have expertise in a variety of complex medical malpractice claims, including medical device failure, obstetrical negligence, surgical negligence, delayed diagnosis of cancer, and catastrophic brain injuries arising from medical negligence. Tyr understands the substantial hardships and complexities that arise from failures within the medical system and works closely with its clients to achieve both financial compensation and justice. Both Pinta Maguire and Michael O'Brien are former defence counsel for physicians who faced allegations of professional negligence. With that unique perspective, Tyr uses effective litigation strategies to advance medical malpractice cases for its injured clients and their families. In doing so, Tyr strives to offer its clients a form of closure, allowing them to move forward after suffering what are often catastrophic life-altering events.
