The lengths to which this lawyer went to represent her auto accident victim

The Supreme Court of Canada has refused to hear the appeal of a personal injury lawyer who is out of pocket $30,000 after she tried to prevent a hospital from taking a vehicle accident claimant off life support.

The lawyer represented Fernando Ferreira, who was injured in a vehicle accident in Ontario in 2016. After the accident, the following July, Ferreira was taken to St. Mary’s General Hospital and put on life support after being found at home in cardiac arrest. Although an ambulance crew had been able to restore his pulse, Ferreira suffered severe brain damage from lack of oxygen. Court documents do not state any correlation between the accident and the heart attack.

Georgiana Masgras, founder of Masgras Personal Injury Lawyers, represented Ferreira in his claims for neck and lower back pain arising from the vehicle accident. While Ferreira was in intensive care at the hospital following the heart attack, his family and doctors decided he should be taken off life support.
