Child suffers brain damage due to alleged medical negligence

According to statistics, negligence in the medical field is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of this frightening statistic. Luckily, Oregon is home to some of the most skilled and qualified doctors and nurses in the country, so most patients are well taken care of. However, medical negligence continues to occur, and the consequences can be profound and life-altering for those affected. A child in another state suffered brain damage due to alleged negligent care, and the family has filed a lawsuit.

Family awarded settlement of $15M due to birth injury

The birth of a child is a moment of great joy and excitement for parents in Oregon and around the world. This joyous experience can quickly turn tragic when negligence by a doctor or nurse leaves a newborn baby with a birth injury. Unfortunately, when mistakes happen in the delivery room, the child and family have to live with the consequences. A family in another state filed a lawsuit against a hospital after their daughter suffered brain damage during delivery.
