Oregon residents want to be able to trust their doctors and nurses with anything. They disclose very personal information and open themselves up in very vulnerable ways in order to receive the best medical care possible. Doctors are held to a high standard in order to ensure that patients' trust is not broken.
However, in many cases, doctors and hospitals don't live up to these standards. Doctors make mistakes, fail to diagnose illnesses and make people sicker. Hospital negligence, in some cases, people may cause people to suffer a worsened medical condition following treatment. When this happens, a medical malpractice suit can help compensate the victim for the injuries they have suffered.
