Examples of Common Medical Errors in Lane County, OR

With over 40 years of proven success handling complex medical negligence claims, the lawyers at Moseley Collins Law bring extensive experience with the all-too-common oversights and errors that cause catastrophic patient injuries, including:

Emergency Room Mistakes - Failure to promptly recognize telltale symptoms of heart attacks, strokes, infections, ectopic pregnancies, or other emergent conditions invites disastrous outcomes when treatment gets delayed. ER overcrowding and inadequate testing also endangers patients.

Surgical Errors - Operating room mistakes remain among the most damaging types of medical negligence. Our past clients suffered severe loss of limb functionality, disfigurement, paralysis or other permanent disability when safety protocols got ignored during procedures.

Childbirth Injuries - Fast-paced delivery rooms leave little margin for error, but preventable medical mistakes can inflict infants with lifetime conditions. Children impacted suffer developmental delays, cerebral palsy, spine or shoulder injuries that limit mobility.

Misdiagnosis - Failing to recognize early stage cancers or symptoms of impending cardiovascular events, seizures, and allergic reactions allows disease progression until reversing damage becomes impossible. Catching conditions early proves critical for survival odds and recovery prospects.

Pharmacy Errors - Hospitalized patients rely on medical staff to correctly prescribe, dispense and administer all drugs. Tragically, overwhelmed providers make errors dosing medications for vulnerable patients unable to speak up when something seems amiss.

No two medical malpractice fact patterns ever look identical, but our lawyers have experience negotiating and litigating an extensive spectrum of medical negligence incidents in Lane County and communities statewide. We help shine a spotlight on questionable care to prevent similar outcomes from ever being repeated. Standing up to large hospitals and top physicians takes dedication and resources - which our lawyers wholeheartedly provide.

Proving Medical Negligence Requires Extensive Legal Preparation

Successfully pursuing maximum compensation for clients severely impacted by medical errors relies on methodical legal preparation and litigation skills. Upon partnering for representation, our immediate priorities include gathering all pertinent medical paperwork for the independent specialists we recruit to review case aspects. Identifying each misstep or oversight made by providers requires collaborating with medical experts across every specialty involved in the negligent care incidents.

For example, a single client’s situation could necessitate input from a vascular surgeon to assess symptoms presented in the emergency room, a radiologist to examine how imaging tests got handled, anesthesiology experts to weigh in on responses during surgery, internal medicine doctors to detail hospital recovery practices, long-term rehabilitation providers to project ongoing impairment, and other specialists depending on case complexities.

Under Oregon negligence laws, collecting monetary damages requires demonstrating:

  • A direct doctor-patient relationship existed establishing a duty of care owed.
  • Through substandard medical decisions, providers breached this duty entrusted to them.
  • Patients suffered preventable injuries directly resulting from said breaches.
  • All physical, emotional, financial and other damages endured currently and expected lifelong.

With such high stakes pursuing financial recoveries for our severely harmed clients, Moseley Collins Law diligently leaves no stone unturned while investigating original medical negligence acts. Our proven litigation approach sets the stage for delivering optimal remedies through settlements or jury verdicts for injured victims.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) What Constitutes Medical Malpractice Under Oregon Negligence Laws?

Medical malpractice gets defined under ORS chapter 677 as any instance where a licensed healthcare professional fails to meet accepted standards of medical care, resulting in otherwise preventable patient injury or wrongful death. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, specialists or other providers demonstrating negligence through reckless skill/judgment exercise or oversight can commit malpractice through actions/omissions violating this duty entrusted to them.

Can Any Negative Medical Outcome Qualify as Grounds to Sue Healthcare Providers?

No. Within complex medicine, risks inherently exist as no treatments or surgeries prove 100% safe for all patients. However, in cases of clear-cut, gross negligence errors resulting in catastrophic patient harm, reasonable grounds likely exist justifying a medical malpractice claim seeking accountability and compensation under ORS chapter 31.

What Types of Damages Can a Medical Malpractice Lawyer Seek Compensation for in Oregon?

Successful verdicts for clients aim to cover all tangible plus intangible losses tied to medical negligence, including property losses, medical costs, lost income, loss of household services, physical/mental health therapy expenses, permanent disabilities, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and more covered under ORS 31.710. For wrongful death claims, families can also pursue damages related to grief, loss of companionship and funeral costs.

How Much Time Do Victims Have to Pursue Oregon Medical Malpractice Claims After Errors?

Patients generally have two years from the date of injury or two years from reasonable discovery of injuries tying back to medical negligence per ORS 12.110. Given strict statutes of limitations and complex litigation preparation needed, prompt legal consultation after medical errors occur remains vital to ensure rights get fully protected before windows expire.

The statute of limitations for each individual case will vary and may be enlarged depending upon the facts and circumstances of each case. Thus, you are encouraged to contact one of our medical malpractice attorneys as soon as possible.
