Defining Medical Negligence
Most medical malpractice cases center on the legal doctrine of negligence. Negligence is the concept of someone failing to fulfill his or her duties of care. A doctor has a duty to provide proper patient care according to medical industry standards. If medical negligence causes a patient’s injury or death, the at-fault party could be legally responsible. The party guilty of negligence might have to pay for the victim’s economic losses, as well as for physical pain and emotional distress.
Medical negligence describes any breach of duty of care by a medical professional, including a doctor, surgeon or registered nurse. It can also refer to negligence by the overarching health care center, hospital, surgical center or emergency room. Proof of medical negligence in connection to a patient’s injury, illness, infection or death could force the at-fault party to pay damages in Oregon. Our attorneys help patients fight for fair compensation for their past and future losses in cases against powerful health care defendants in Hillsboro.
