About the Firm Portland Medical Malpractice Attorneys

http://www.miller-wagner.com 866.785.6625 Miller & Wagner, LLP handles medical malpractice cases. If you need representation, contact the firm in Portland, Oregon.

As a patient, you have the right to be treated in a clean, safe, healthful environment. When hospitals cut corners and staff fail to properly complete cleaning procedures, infections can leave patients in a worse physical condition than when they admitted.

If you or a loved one contracted an infection while hospitalized, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Miller & Wagner, LLP, we will evaluate your case for free. If a doctor, hospital or medical staff caused you to contract an infection, we will hold them liable and fight to get you the compensation you deserve. From our offices in Eugene and Portland, we represent patients and their families throughout Oregon.

Recover Compensation After a Hospital-Acquired Infection

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), millions of patients contract serious hospital-acquired infections each year. This breaks down to roughly one in 20 hospitalized patients contracting infections every day.

In-hospital infections can be caused by a wide variety of oversights, including unwashed hands, improperly sterilized medical equipment and airborne germs. The CDC has indicated three types of infections that make up approximately two-thirds of all hospital-acquired infections:

  • Surgery site infections — Caused by devices used during surgery
  • Gastrointestinal infections — Caused by unclean surfaces
  • Bloodstream infections — Typically caused by contaminated or improper use of catheters or ventilators

There are steps hospitals, doctors and staff must take to prevent infection in hospitalized patients. However, budget cuts and time constraints often result in these steps being overlooked. The result: serious and life-threatening injuries to hospitalized patients.

At Miller & Wagner, LLP, everything we do is with your interests in mind. Our attorneys are aggressive when necessary and act as strong legal advocates in both the courtroom and during settlement negotiations.

We work closely with independent medical experts to review our clients' cases and determine the cause of their infections. We also evaluate hospital practices and procedures. If you or a loved one developed an infection due to the negligence of hospital staff, doctors or nurses, we will hold them liable.
