What Qualifies as Medical Malpractice in Oregon?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional breaches accepted standards of medical care, resulting in injury or death that otherwise would not have occurred. Reasonable compensation can be pursued when poor medical judgment, improper treatment, failure to diagnose serious conditions, mistakes during surgery, lack of informed consent, childbirth injuries, and other forms of negligence cause preventable patient harm.

Some common medical errors include:

  • Misdiagnosing or Delaying Diagnosis of Cancer
  • Surgical Mistakes and Complications
  • Medication and Prescription Errors
  • Anesthesia Errors

However, many other forms of physician negligence can warrant a medical malpractice lawsuit when serious harm results that can be definitively linked to the substandard medical care received.

Medical Malpractice Investigation

Successfully winning compensation in a medical negligence case requires proving four key legal elements:

  1. Doctor-Patient Relationship - The physician owed a duty of care to the patient
  2. Breach of Duty - Accepted medical standard practices were not followed
  3. Damages - Preventable physical, mental, or financial harm occurred
  4. Causation - Breaches directly caused the injury or death

Extensive investigation and authoritative testimony from veteran medical specialists are needed to firmly establish these facets for a medical malpractice claim or wrongful death lawsuit. Moseley Collins Law devotes substantial resources toward developing irrefutable evidence proving medical negligence.

For each potential malpractice case, our lawyers hire a team of at least four independent specialists to intensively review what occurred and determine mistakes made. Respected experts in fields closely related to the alleged negligence are brought in when needed to study medical charts, lab reports, doctor notes, surgical logs, radiology scans, hospital policies, and all other relevant clinical information.

The multitude of fresh perspectives allow our lawyers to gain a precise understanding of reasonable medical care compared to what was provided, missed, or delayed. When unanimous consensus is reached that preventable harm directly resulted from negligence, our lawyers vigorously pursue maximum financial damages through settlement negotiations or jury trials.

The Basis for Medical Malpractice Cases in OR

Medical liability cases often derive from Oregon state laws regarding healthcare provider negligence, wrongful death statutes, informed consent regulations, and similar legislation. Skilled medical malpractice lawyers thoroughly understand these intricacies and use them to establish evidence for seeking legal damages.

ORS chapter 677 - "Regulation of Medicine, Podiatry and Acupuncture" - establishes rules governing licensed physician conduct and acceptable standards of care. Negligently violating these expectations can warrant medical malpractice lawsuits. Additional Oregon laws pertaining to medical liability cases include but are not limited to:

  • ORS 30.020 - Negligence Causing Injury Generally
  • ORS 30.265(1) - Limitations on Actions for Malpractice
  • ORS 31.580 - Accountability for Willful or Reckless Misconduct

For a death caused by medical negligence, additional Oregon wrongful death laws enable bereaved families to pursue a civil action for economic and non-economic damages. This includes loss of companionship in addition to the financial losses from a wrongful death.

Skilled medical malpractice lawyers understand how to leverage such legislation to build strong cases warranting maximum compensation for injured victims and surviving families. Supporting testimony from medical experts also bolsters evidence when health standards were breached.
