Portland Brain Injury Lawyer

Passionate Advocate for Malpractice Victims in Oregon

Damage to the brain can be detrimental to your well-being and ability to function on a daily basis. The brain is the central hub of the body's nervous system, the organ that controls movement, memory, speech, feeling, and utility. When its capacity to perform is limited by an injury, the implications can be devastating. If such an injury or a wrongful death is caused by medical professionals, the very people to whom we entrust our health and safety, they should be held accountable for causing harm.

At The Law Offices of Patrick L. Block, P.C., we have been passionate advocates for victims of the negligence of our medical practitioners for more than two decades. Our Portland medical malpractice lawyer is dedicated to providing personalized legal counsel to those who have suffered injuries and illnesses at the hands of incompetent and inattentive doctors, nurses, and hospitals in Oregon. Named among the "Top 100 Trial Lawyers" by the National Trial Lawyers, we stop at nothing to seek justice for our clients.

Brain Injuries Caused by Medical Errors

It is well known that medical professionals must go through years of training and education before earning the right to practice. The reason for such extensive training is simple: they hold the lives of their patients in their hands. Their job holds a significant responsibility in that every decision they make and every action they take can have serious and costly ramifications. Thus, they are trained to follow specific and standard protocol to react to any and all situations with logic, care, and competence.

Unfortunately, this does not always happen, as many medical scenarios can result in a brain injury when just one mistake is made or one factor is overlooked. A doctor or a nurse must remain constantly alert for problems that might arise and respond with educated choices, especially when the brain is involved. However, distraction and lack of focus can lead a doctor to make costly errors that can cause significant damage to a patient's brain.

Brain damage can result from medical errors including:

When a brain injury is caused by one of the aforementioned errors, which are preventable mistakes that a competent and able doctor or nurse would not have made, this is considered negligence and grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Your brain injury should never have happened, and now you are forced to suffer the consequences. We believe that you deserve to take action to ensure that incompetent professionals in Portland are held accountable for the damages they have done.

If a brain injury results in the wrongful death of your loved one, we will not only seek the maximum compensation that you and your family deserve, but we will also fight to have the negligent doctor, hospital, or ER change their policies and procedures to prevent a similar tragedy from occurring ever again.

Seek the Full and Fair Compensation for Your Injury

Brain injuries can have serious implications on your livelihood. The way you function and perform everyday tasks will likely be severely altered. Not only can this take significant adjustments to your environment and to your mentality, but it can also cause financial and emotional hardship. At The Law Offices of Patrick L. Block, P.C., we are committed to helping those who have suffered brain injuries at the hands of medical professionals fight for maximum compensation so that they can move forward in peace.

We know that no amount of money can undo the damage that has been done, but we want to ensure that you do not have to suffer the cost of additional medical treatment you may need. Furthermore, a brain injury may cause you to miss days of work, or lose your job altogether. This means that you will likely lose wages while you recover and might have to undergo training for a new career. We will fight aggressively on your behalf to ensure that you get the financial support that you need to get back on your feet.
