Oregon case makes it easier to claim for loss of chance theory

What can you do if you're in pain and sick but a doctor doesn't diagnose you correctly? It's normal to file a claim for medical malpractice, but something that you can also seek out is compensation for the "loss of chance," thanks to a current case in Oregon. This legal theory rides on the allegation that the patient lost his or her right to a chance at recovery due to medical negligence.

Misdiagnosing a brain injury can have devastating consequences

A misdiagnosis of brain swelling can be devastating to a patient. When the brain swells, quick action needs to be taken to release pressure. Unlike other parts of the body, the brain is trapped inside a hard skull, which does not flex or expand when the brain swells. Since this is the case, brain swelling can actually lead to severe injuries that may worsen if the swelling is not reduced quickly.
