Portland Medical Malpractice Attorney Mark J. Leeds Will Take Your Case to a Jury When Other Lawyers Won’t
Everyone makes mistakes. However, when a medical mistake that could have been prevented robs you or a loved one of your health and well-being, justice demands that you receive some form of compensation. When a healthcare professional is negligent or reckless, the consequences can be catastrophic. If you have had such an experience, Portland medical malpractice attorney Mark J. Leeds can evaluate your medical records in order to provide you with experienced legal counsel as to whether or not you have a viable medical malpractice claim.
Tools for Success: Attention to Detail, a Big Budget, the Right Experts, and an Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Just because a doctor or other healthcare provider has made an error does not necessarily mean that malpractice occurred. Although your personal injury lawyer in Portland has extensive experience handling Oregon malpractice cases dealing with brain injuries, spinal injuries, stroke, birth injuries, and wrongful death, just to name a few, medical malpractice cases are exceedingly difficult, time-consuming, and expensive, and lawyers who are not experienced with medical malpractice trials typically will not risk the personal investment required. Statistically, more victims lose than win, and settlements are hard to come by. Mark has the legal acumen necessary to meticulously evaluate your case to determine whether it is worth pursuing and the ethical integrity to be up front and honest with you about it. If Mark takes your case, rest assured that he will work assiduously to help you obtain any compensation you may be due.
If a Healthcare Professional Has Betrayed Your Trust, Turn to a Portland Medical Malpractice Attorney to Recover Your Losses
We trust that our healthcare professionals will keep us healthy and look out for our best interests, and though the state of Oregon has many fine doctors and hospitals, that does not mean that medical malpractice does not occur. When that trust is betrayed, it not only damages our physical well-being, but it can also cause extreme mental anguish, as well. Whether it was because a doctor did not adequately monitor your condition after a procedure, a nurse gave you the wrong medication, or a surgical sponge or other instrument caused a perforation when it was left behind after surgery, your medical malpractice lawyer in Portland will do everything possible to afford you the opportunity to pursue the fullest amount of remuneration to which you may be entitled. Having successfully handled multiple malpractice cases, Mark understands what you and your family have been through and will staunchly pursue any justice that you may be due.
It’s important to know the following points when you’re considering an Oregon medical malpractice claim:
1. There is a relatively brief window of time in which the lawsuit may be filed. Time is of the essence, especially if there is a need to sue not only the physician, but a facility or partnership.
2. A medical malpractice investigation is time-consuming. Simply having access to your records may not be sufficient for your medical malpractice attorney to determine whether or not to pursue your case, which leads to the next point …
3. A medical malpractice attorney will typically have a physician or nurse review your medical records. Often, the opinion of a specialist may be required.
4. In Oregon, a medical malpractice lawsuit will often take more time than other types of accident and personal injury cases.
