Most Oregonians are not medical experts. They rely on doctors, nurses and hospital staff to diagnose and treat their medical conditions. Most people expect that these medical professionals have the right answers. People place their trust in doctors while dealing with medical emergencies.
However, sometimes doctors fail to live up to the standards that most people believe they should. In some cases they may rush. In others, they may read medical symptoms the wrong way, or they can fail to recognize symptoms at all. When these mistake result in a misdiagnosis, Oregon residents suffer.
A misdiagnosis can lead to unnecessary medical procedures and costs, a worsened medical condition or terminal health conditions. When you have suffered from misdiagnosed cancer, the failure to diagnose appendicitis, failure to detect tumors or blood clots or other serious medical conditions, our firm can help. We have the solid understanding of both medical and legal procedures necessary to hold negligent doctors responsible.
With our help, you may be able to obtain the compensation you need in order to recover from a misdiagnosis. While we cannot help to reverse the physical damage done by a negligent doctor, we can — as our misdiagnosis page explains — help you seek the financial compensation you need so you can focus on your recovery instead of the unnecessary medical bills and costs. Our firm can also help you to seek noneconomic compensation for the pain, suffering and emotional trauma that the misdiagnosis has created.
We can help you gather the information necessary to bring the claim. With the right help, medical malpractice doesn’t need to ruin your life. A successful medical malpractice suit could bring closure to the incident and help you move forward.
