Medical errors are the third most common cause of death, still medical malpractice suits are rare. Hospitals and insurance companies hide mistakes with vagueness and delays.
Doctors rarely admit mistakes. Many patients are given no explanation for the failure of their treatment. If the explanations for your injuries are incomplete or don’t make sense, call today.
Dennis Law works with teams of medical experts to make sure you get the answers and compensation you deserve.
Medical malpractice is a legal claim for injuries that result from improper medical care. In Oregon: The elements of a claim for medical malpractice are: (1) a duty that runs from the defendant to the plaintiff, (2) breach of that duty, and (3) resulting harm to the plaintiff measurable in damages.
In practice, medical malpractice actions are unique because the standard of care is established by the medical industry itself and is effectively unique to each malpractice case. Dennis Law works with top experts to identify the stand of care in your case.
Sadly, medical errors are the third most common cause of death in the US. Johns Hopkins patient safety experts have calculated that more than 250,000 deaths per year are due to medical errors.
Medical malpractice cases almost always require an expert witness. A medical expert must explain how your medical provider deviated from the “standard of care” and explain the cause of your injuries. Dennis Law locates top medical experts from across the country to testify on your behalf.
Medical records are the most important piece of evidence in a medical malpractice case. If you have access to your records, please bring them with you. If you do not have copies of your records, Dennis Law can help acquire copies.
Photos, medical bills, text messages and any notes you made during your care are also helpful.
It is incredibly rare for a malpractice claim to be resolved without an attorney. Medical providers do not admit their mistakes. To add insult to injury hospitals still charge patients for the cost of negligent care.
