Examples of Medical Malpractice in Corvallis, OR

As patient advocates, the legal team at Moseley Collins Law has seen hundreds upon hundreds of instances where substandard medical care or downright negligence caused preventable patient harm. Some of the more frequent medical errors we have seen in the Corvallis area include:

Failure to Diagnose or Misdiagnosis - Missing early symptoms of diseases through inaccurate interpretations of imaging scans, lab results, patient-reported complaints and more often causes conditions like cancer, infections or cardiovascular disease to rapidly advance past the point of intervention by the time the correct diagnosis occurs.

Surgical Mistakes - Errors made in the operating room that breach accepted standards of reasonable care remains among the most catastrophic types of medical negligence we handle. Severe disability and loss of limb function occurs when rules get ignored, such as operating on the wrong body part, leaving foreign objects inside after surgery, employing improper technique that damages healthy tissues, or failing to prevent postoperative infections.

Medication Errors - Hospitalized patients and nursing home residents rely on medical staff to correctly prescribe, dispense and administer all drugs. But mix ups still frequently happen involving wrong medications given, incorrect dosages administered, overlooked drug allergies and contraindications, inadequate monitoring of side effects, and other pharmacy or nursing mishaps that compromise patient well-being.

Childbirth Injuries - When poor decisions or reckless actions take place during prenatal care, labor, delivery or in the initial postpartum period, newborns may sustain brain bleeds, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries like Erb’s palsy and other catastrophic damage. Any departure from accepted birthing standards by OBGYN doctors, nurses and pediatricians must be thoroughly addressed so families can secure lifelong care resources for affected infants.

Preventable Infections - With rigorous infection control practices inside hospitals, many illnesses caused by IV-line infections, surgical site contamination with MRSA and other antibiotic resistant superbugs could likely be prevented. But when systemic infection protocols get ignored, patient consequences often turn dire.

And other types of medical errors - our legal team has extensive experience with the all-too-common oversights and negligent actions that bring preventable harm to patients.

Proving Medical Negligence Occurred in Corvallis

Proving Medical Negligence Occurred in Corvallis

Successfully winning fair financial compensation in an Oregon medical malpractice case hinges on having an experienced medical negligence lawyer demonstrate that substandard medical treatment directly caused preventable patient harm.

Key legal aspects our law firm must conclusively establish through litigation include:

Duty of Care - A direct doctor-patient relationship existed that legally obligated the provider to deliver competent medical treatment meeting reasonable professional standards under the circumstances presented.

Breach of Duty - The particular medical provider(s) - such as a doctor, nurse, hospital, or nursing home - demonstrably failed in carrying out their expected duty to meet appropriate standards of medical care. Their services clearly fell below what a reasonable peer physician or average hospital/clinic would have provided given the patient's symptoms, history and other factors known at the time or that should have been further investigated when unclear.

Causation - The identified breaches in accepted normal medical practice standards definitively caused the subsequent catastrophic patient injuries, disability or death. There exists clear medical evidence tying the resulting physical harm back to the medical negligence through a chain of proximate events.

Significant Damages - The patient and family continue facing profound suffering and extensive losses associated with resulting lifespan disabilities, lost income, out-of-pocket medical and life care expenses, reduced life expectancy, loss of companionship and consortium, and severely diminished overall quality of living. The cumulative financial impacts and disruption warrant substantial compensation.

Successfully proving medical negligence cases relies on plaintiff lawyers closely collaborating with highly skilled independent specialists from fields closely associated to the matters at hand. These medical experts objectively review pertinent patient charts, data, images and doctor progress notes then form authoritative opinions showing exactly where healthcare delivery standards failed, why no reasonable excuse existed for such failures, and how fateful decisions or lack of action led to patient catastrophe.

The accomplished medical malpractice lawyers with Moseley Collins Law leverage over 40 years of experience. Our injury law firm leaves no potential record unexamined and no plausible detail overlooked when working toward understanding what went wrong and constructing strong negligence cases on behalf of victims harmed by subpar medical care.

Early in each case's development, Moseley Collins devotes substantial initial investigation efforts toward gathering clients' complete medical charts as maintained by involved providers, doctor progress notes, surgical reports, laboratory test data, imaging scan results, pharmacy logs and all other pertinent records that could help demonstrate what care transpired.

We ensure multiple seasoned independent specialists and professionals closely associated with every area of medicine involved closely review this accumulated evidence to search for deviations from reasonable standards of care applicable to the treating providers or facilities. 

Throughout these processes our lawyers remain committed to building rapport and closely collaborating with clients, enlisted medical experts, defendant liability insurers and healthcare administrators alike in the collaborative spirit of pursuing truth and justice. Most matters resolve through mutually-agreeable settlement negotiation once consensus forms around the merits, although our firm remains fully prepared to try cases before juries when just solutions cannot be reached cooperatively.

With this client-first focus as our driving motivation, the medical malpractice lawyers at Moseley Collins Law have helped numerous injured victims and families secure legal accountability when harmed by healthcare falling below community standards. We would be honored to meet with you as well during an initial free case consultation to potentially help you on the difficult path toward justice and well-deserved closure.
