What Is Medical Malpractice?

At Sokol & Foster, P.C., in Portland, Oregon, our attorneys regularly talk with people who suffer heartbreaking losses as a result of the care they received in a doctor's office, hospital or emergency room. However, a bad outcome does not in itself mean that the medical provider committed malpractice. Sometimes, doctors and nurses do everything they are supposed to do, and the patient still suffers an injury or dies.
