When it comes to pregnancy-related injuries and various other ways in which patients may suffer as a result of medical professional negligence, the immediate consequences can be devastating. These challenges sometimes result in the loss of life and unbearable levels of physical pain, not to mention the emotional toll of these incidents can make daily life almost unbearable.

When you prepare to give birth in Oregon, chances are, your hope is to have as smooth and safe a birthing process as possible.
