There are many important legal and procedural differences between Oregon and Washington medical malpractice law. At Miller & Wagner, our familiarity with these distinctions and our ability to work effectively under either state's rules can give your claim an important advantage.
Nevertheless, the fundamentals of medical malpractice in Oregon and Washington are substantially the same. Your attorney needs to show through the testimony of medical experts that a member of your treatment team made a mistake that reflected a departure from a recognized standard of care. You'll also need to prove that the mistake led to the patient's death or serious injury.
