If you or someone whom you love has suffered a loss or injury during birth in Oregon, it is reasonable to examine the situation closely. Birth is not without risks: Accidents happen. On the other hand, any number of people who were supposed to help and support you may have been negligent in their duties. You have the right to competent medical assistance, and you should be compensated to the extent of the law for any preventable injuries. The first step in this process is determining who among your caregivers might be liable for medical malpractice.
At the Law Offices of Robert A. Miller, we believe that Oregon mothers have the basic right of receiving adequate and competent healthcare for themselves and their infant children during birth. Your birth medical professional is a human being, and is therefore unable to perform miracles in impossible situations. However, malpractice is an unfortunate fact of life. We see it as our duty to make sure that irresponsible caregivers do not escape justice when they are derelict in their duties.
