Portland Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Dedicated to Helping Victims of Medical Negligence
Doctors and practitioners go through years of highly intensive schooling
and practical training before they are allowed to practice medicine. The
reason behind this is because there is more at stake while they are on
the job than most other professions. Patients who come to them trust them
with their lives, and expect that they will be treated with utmost care
and caution from a competent and attentive doctor.
If you or a loved one have received treatment from a doctor, hospital,
or nurse in Portland or across Oregon and have suffered a serious injury
as a result, you may be entitled to recover compensation for medical malpractice.

Am I Eligible to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?
In order to determine if you have a medical malpractice claim, it is first
important to understand what malpractice entails. Essentially,
medical negligence occurs when a doctor or medical practitioner either
does something that a competent doctor wouldn't do or fails to do
something that a competent doctor would do. If this mistake or omission leads to an injury or illness or fails to
prevent the worsening of an injury or illness, this would likely be valid
grounds for a malpractice claim.
Because even the medical field can be an imperfect science, proving that
a doctor failed to live up to the standard of care, or the industry's
accepted method of protocol and procedures, can be extremely difficult.
Proving medical negligence requires access to resources like pools of
medical experts who can provide analysis and insight into a doctor's
actions to determine whether or not they adhered to protocol.
If you or a loved one has experienced medical malpractice, you deserve
strong legal advocacy in order to pursue the compensation you deserve. At
