Portland Medical Malpractice Lawyer
CASE EVALUATIONS ARE FAST, EASY, AND FREE.
What do you do when a healthcare provider or hospital that you’ve entrusted with your well-being causes more harm, injuries, or even loss of life?
The law protects victims of medical malpractice by allowing them to pursue compensation for all resulting damages. If you suspect that a healthcare specialist is somehow responsible for you or your loved one’s injuries, evaluating your case with a Portland medical malpractice lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can offer clarity.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other healthcare specialist’s negligent acts or failure to act harms a patient. Such errors can occur in any stage, including diagnosis, prescription, during a medical procedure, or after-treatment care.
Some examples of malpractice that you can sue for include:

Your attorney will collect all forms of evidence to prove these four elements of negligence:
Filing a medical malpractice claim requires you to do so within a particular period, or it may be barred by the court. This law is known as the statute of limitations.
In Portland, you have a maximum of two years from when the injury happened or should have been discovered. Remember, some damages from medical mistakes might take years to become apparent.
Medical malpractice cases are particularly complex because first, you’re likely to require scientific evidence from medical experts, and second, you might be suing large institutions or specialists with fierce legal defense. Having professional legal help levels the playing ground, increasing the chances of success.
