It is important to act quickly if you believe you have a medical malpractice claim, because Oregon law limits the time period for when such a claim may be filed.

Get experienced legal help to navigate the complexities of your medical malpractice claim.
Medical malpractice is one of the most complex types of claims. It requires an understanding of medicine and the law. Medical malpractice claims require, among other things, proof of the appropriate medical standard of care, the existence of a provider-patient relationship, and a connection between substandard care and patient harm. Thus, understanding of medical protocols and procedures, in addition to legal requirements and standards, is essential. Most malpractice cases require expert witnesses to explain the medical issues, and experienced attorneys can help determine the best expert witnesses for a specific case.
A medical malpractice claim can be important to helping you recover from your injury and put you in a place that you deserve. You can pursue compensation for further medical expenses, lost income, future care, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
