We go to the hospital hoping to recover from an illness or injury. Unfortunately, we sometimes end up being injured or ill a second time: this time by the care we receive.
If you were injured or suffered a serious illness during a recent hospital stay, you may have a legitimate claim for damages. Talk to an attorney at the medical malpractice law firm of Miller & Wagner, LLP. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. With offices in Pacific City and Portland, our lawyers represent families throughout Oregon and Washington.
Hospital Negligence in Oregon and Washington
Hospitals, emergency rooms and other medical facilities are under strict regulations to reduce the chances of injury caused by mistakes and negligence. Sadly, the number of hospital-acquired infections continues to grow, resulting in thousands of deaths each year. Other types of injuries include:
- Medication errors
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Falls from hospital beds or operating tables
- Discharge from the hospital before the patient is ready to go home
- Injuries resulting from improper monitoring of patients
- Injuries caused by a doctor, nurse or other staff member working for the hospital
Our medical malpractice lawyers have extensive experience related to liability of hospital systems with respect to patient injuries and illnesses. We work with independent medical professionals to investigate and prepare evidence for recovering compensation for everything you have lost due to hospital negligence.
From our offices in Portland, our medical malpractice trial attorneys represent plaintiffs in medical negligence claims against physicians and health care providers throughout Oregon and Washington. For your convenience, we have a satellite office in Pacific City.
