The uniquely high stakes of the position means that doctors and nurses

What is malpractice?
Medical malpractice can be difficult injury claims to prove. Essentially,
if a doctor/patient relationship existed between you and the defendant
that was violated by the doctor’s negligent or careless actions,
you may have a malpractice claim. It must be proven that this negligence
was the proximate cause of your injury or furthered condition.
Common acts of negligence that can be considered malpractice include:
- Anesthesia errors
- Delayed diagnosis
- Birth injuries
- Emergency room malpractice
- Hospital negligence
- Medication errors
- Surgical errors
Proving that these errors caused your condition can be complicated. The
defense will do all they can to prove that your injury was pre-existent
and any further injuries were inevitable and unavoidable, regardless of
the doctor’s actions. Additionally, the process for pursuing a malpractice
claim requires professional medical review and expert testimony. Fortunately,
our firm knows what it takes to win these cases and will do everything
in our power to ensure that you receive justice.
Don’t Wait to Take Action
In Oregon, individuals who believe that they have medical malpractice claims
must file within two years from the date that the negligence occurred.
If you do not file within the statute of limitations, you will be unable
to obtain the compensation that you deserve. Thus, it is essential to
contact a personal injury attorney at our firm as soon as possible, so
that we can begin to go to work for you.
Ryan A. Johnson, P.C. will consult with medical experts to determine whether
or not the doctor’s actions were within the realm of reasonable
competence. In other words, if a competent doctor would have acted differently
under the same circumstances, we will use that testimony as evidence that
a doctor violated the standard of care. You can trust our Atlanta medical
malpractice lawyers to fight for your recovery.
