How Can a Lawyer Help?
Confiding in a medical malpractice lawyer can be what you need for answers and peace of mind during this difficult time. A lawyer can explain your rights from a legal standpoint, then analyze your situation for the elements required to build a medical malpractice claim. If you are eligible for financial compensation, a lawyer can assist you in filing a demand letter and following through with settlement negotiations or a personal injury lawsuit in Washington County. Your attorney can make sure you obtain the compensation you need to move forward.
What Damages Are Available?
A medical malpractice claim in Oregon could end in full and fair compensation for many different damages. Our attorneys work hard on behalf of their clients to secure maximum awards. The amount obtained in your case – if any – will depend on many factors, such as how significant your injuries are and how long you will be out of work.
Although each case is unique, the types of damages available remain the same across practice areas in Oregon’s civil justice system. They include medical bills, disability accommodations, lost income, pain and suffering, legal fees, property damage repairs, and punitive damages.
