Pursue Justice for Preventable Medical Errors

While we know that no amount of money can replace what you have lost, we also know that a sudden and wrongful death can result in significant financial and emotional blow that can further exacerbate the stress and frustration you are likely experiencing during this difficult time. Furthermore, doctors are held to extremely high standards of conduct, and go through years of extensive training to ensure that they can make the right decisions regarding the treatment of their patients. We believe that doctors who fail to make competent decisions should be held accountable for the implications of their actions.

The following are common medical errors that can result in a wrongful death:

The aforementioned errors are avoidable and preventable if a doctor is competent and attentive. Medical professionals are trained to know how to respond to every scenario and are expected to keep a calm and cool head in order to make rational and educated decisions. Their mistakes and failures can have tragic consequences, and we want to help those who have suffered accordingly.

Fighting for the Maximum Compensation You Deserve

When you lose a loved one due to the negligence of a medical professional in Oregon, you deserve to be compensated for any medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of wages that you suffer. The death of a loved one can be emotionally trying, but you shouldn't have to shoulder the financial burden of a preventable death that was caused by medical errors. Our medical malpractice attorney in Portland can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Factors involved in proving a wrongful death claim include:

  • The death of a patient was caused by an error that could have been prevented
  • The patient had close family members
  • These individuals suffered economic and emotional losses due to the death
  • The doctor or hospital is liable for these damages

Proving liability may require extensive and thorough investigation into the circumstances of your case, as well as aggressive litigation to stand up to doctors and their own legal counsel. Our team will consult with medical experts to determine the action that a competent and careful doctor or nurse would have taken to analyze whether or not medical error was the direct cause of your loved one's death. We have the resources and efficiency that you need to ensure that a negligent doctor is held accountable for his or her actions.
