Why Choose Us?

Common Surgery Center Errors and Causes

Unlike hospitals, surgery centers are typically owned by physicians or physician groups. They may not have rigorous risk management procedures in place to minimize patient risk. Common surgery center errors include:

Who Is Liable?

The doctor, surgery center, or another party may be liable for a patient’s injuries caused by medical error, depending on what caused the injury and whether the doctor is an owner, employee, or private contractor. Our experienced medical malpractice lawyers can investigate your injuries to determine who is the responsible party.

What Damages Can I Recover?

After serious injuries caused by surgery center errors, you may be entitled to recover economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and loss of earning potential. Non-economic damages include fewer tangible losses, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress. In Oregon, unlike other states, there is no cap on non-economic damages for medical malpractices claims, with the exception of wrongful death.
