Oregon Malpractice Attorneys
In the state of Oregon, malpractice refers to a “mistake” a professional made that caused someone harm. Under Oregon malpractice laws, when someone causes you harm, they are responsible for the harm caused.
Anyone hired for professional services – i.e., doctors, dentists, accountants, lawyers, engineers, and architects – can be liable for malpractice. The list is as long as the list of professions that exist in our society. Our malpractice attorneys have experience pursuing cases against, lawyers, doctors, dentists, and nursing homes.
Malpractice is defined as a failure to exercise an ordinary degree of professional skill when performing a professional service that results in injury or harm.
A professional has a duty to use the degree of care, skill, and diligence the average professional would have used when faced with the same or similar circumstances. If you thought your family doctor might have committed medical malpractice by failing to promptly diagnose a rare disease, the question would be: would the average family doctor in your community have been able to diagnose this disease? If the average doctor would have missed it, then your doctor is not guilty of malpractice.
To determine whether or not malpractice has been committed, our lawyers have cases reviewed by practicing professional across the state. While our malpractice attorneys may have handled similar cases, it is important to have each case reviewed by a professional before deciding to move forward with a malpractice claim. This process can sometimes cost more up-front. However, this process ensures that each claim our malpractice lawyers pursue is valid.
Malpractice often results when a professional does not follow the everyday rule of “safety first.”
