Orthopedic Surgical Errors

When you went in for your hip replacement, knee replacement or other total replacement, you were probably concerned about the replacement not taking - or possibly being defective. Yet, since shoulder, hip, knee and other total joint replacements are pretty common today, and surgeons are well-respected medical professionals, you probably didn't expect the surgery itself to cause you harm.

But it has. Now, you are left picking up the pieces of something that should have helped you, but has left you feeling worse than ever. You have every right to be frustrated. You have every reason to want answers. You can and should hold the person that caused you harm accountable.

I'm Robert Miller, a medical malpractice attorney in Eugene. I have successfully pursued compensation for injured patients throughout Oregon for more than 35 years. My team will work hard to get you the answers you are entitled to and the compensation you deserve after an orthopedic injury.

Was It Negligence?

Determining whether your injury is the result of malpractice is complicated. Some injuries are unpredictable such as certain infections, allergic reactions and joint loosening. Others should never happen. No matter what your injury, there may have been steps for your surgeon to take to minimize the risks. Perhaps your surgeon failed to warn you of the dangers, or encouraged you to have a procedure you simply didn't need.

These are the questions we must ask: Did each medical professional act in accordance to the known medical standards when recommending the operation, performing the surgery and taking care of you post-operation? If not, were you injured as a result of that negligence?

To get answers, I have hired professionals from all over the world who are able to review my clients' cases and explain what happened, why it happened and whether there is a case. Their knowledge, combined with my experience and reputation in the medical malpractice industry, can make a real difference in a case.
