Portland Brain Injury Lawyer
Passionate Advocate for Medical 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.
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
