Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional violates the standard of care and causes injury to a patient. Even though the United States is renowned as one of the most medically advanced nations in the world, our hospitals and medical care facilities still fall short when it comes to patient care and treatments. Unfortunately, when doctors and other health care professionals fail to provide their patients with a reasonable level of care, it frequently results in exacerbated symptoms, deadly infections, and tragic fatalities.
If you’ve been injured by the actions, omissions, or errors of a medical professional, you may be able to secure life-saving damages by filing a medical malpractice claim. However, this is an incredibly challenging legal process the warrants the presence of an experienced legal representative.

Medical Malpractice Cases in Oregon
The success of a medical malpractice claim is often dependent on the quality of a plaintiff’s chosen legal representative. Your attorney is responsible for proving four critical facts: a provider-patient relationship had been established; the medical professional violated the standard of care; this violation resulted in an injury that caused you harm; this injury resulted in disability, pain and suffering, financial hardship, and/or loss of income.
Before you can take legal action, it’s important to understand what actions constitute medical negligence. Our tenacious legal team can investigate your case, identify the negligent party, research their career history, and develop a litigation strategy that secures a positive case outcome.
We represent all forms of medical malpractice claims, including:
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Surgical errors
- Failure to treat a condition
- Anesthesia injuries
- Post-surgical infections
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed diagnosis
- Birth injuries
- Lack of informed consent
A successful lawsuit can yield economic, non-economic, and even punitive damages. Unlike most states, Oregon doesn’t have a cap for non-economic damages outside of wrongful death cases. However, medical providers – and their insurance companies – typically contest medical malpractice claims to protect their bottom line and save face in the greater community. As such, it’s critical that you retain the services of an experienced legal team who can represent your interests both in and out of court.
