Far too many people die from hospital negligence each year

Most people in Oregon would agree that everyone makes mistakes. Unfortunately, when a medical professional or a hospital makes that mistake, it can mean the death or serious injury of another person. The fact is that far too many people die each year from hospital negligence.

Jury only took 90 minutes to decide wrongful death claim

Oregon residents often go to doctors for ailments that are not life-threatening. They do not anticipate that they will end up hospitalized or that their lives will be in danger because of receiving treatment for them. However, on occasion, something goes horribly wrong, and a patient dies. A victim's surviving family members most likely never thought that they would be exercising their rights to file a wrongful death claim in the aftermath of what should have been considered a simple fix.

These doctor errors are frightening and appalling

Nearly every Oregon resident has heard horror stories about mistakes that happened to patients while under the care of medical personnel. The stories can be hard to believe, but the documents filed in courthouses across the country verify that the doctor errors actually occurred. Below are just a few of the more frightening and appalling instances of medical malpractice that happened around the country.

Man claims doctor errors led him to rehab and his wife to divorce

Managing pain with medications often requires a delicate balance -- especially when opiods are prescribed. Doctors here in Oregon and elsewhere need to monitor their patients closely because these drugs are addictive and can cause harm to the patient if not given in the correct dosages. When doctor errors occur, people can die.
