Why You Need a Beaverton Birth Injury Lawyer
Birth injury claims fall under the umbrella of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is the complicated area of law dealing with the negligence of health care practitioners and providers. Most medical malpractice claims in Beaverton and throughout Oregon do not name people as defendants, but rather entities. Going up against a hospital or insurance corporation can be much easier with help from a lawyer who is representing your family’s best interests. Hiring a lawyer can enable you to take care of complex legal matters and difficult insurance negotiations with peace of mind. You can focus on your family while your lawyer takes care of the rest.

Who Is Liable?
Hospitals and birthing centers are often vicariously liable for birth injuries. As employers, health care centers are vicariously responsible for the actions and missteps of their employees. If, however, the doctor or surgeon that caused your child’s birth injury was an independent contractor, you might not have a case against the larger health care center. You might have to file a claim with the individual’s insurance policy instead. In other cases, such as those involving a defective medical device, a third party might share liability. Our attorneys can review your birth injury case to help you name the correct defendant(s).
