Investigation reveals boy's death was due to medical negligence

Many Oregon residents may not know that negligence in the field of healthcare is one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. Doctors, nurses, and other medical providers are entrusted with the care of thousands of patients each day. When mistakes are made, the effects are magnified, and consequences can be deadly for the patient. Parents in another state are pursuing legal action after they claim the death of their 9-year-old son was caused by medical negligence.

2 lawsuits against the same doctor allege medical negligence

Negligence can happen in all walks of life, but when negligence happens in health care, the consequences can be devastating and permanent. Patients in Oregon visit medical providers with the expectation that they are receiving the best available care. Sadly, this is not always the case. Although most doctors are skilled professionals, some doctors make crucial errors. Two lawsuits were recently filed against a doctor in another state over claims of medical negligence.

There is always a certain level of risk involved when patients undergo surgical procedures. Even though patient safety has vastly improved in recent years, countless patients are injured each year due to negligence and mistakes by doctors and surgeons. Health care professionals in Oregon and across the country are more educated and receive more training than ever before, but this does not exclude them from making mistakes. In another state, a woman suffered substantial injuries after a surgical procedure on her neck, and she was recently awarded a substantial judgment after filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Negligence can happen in all walks of life. Most of the time when negligence is experienced, the results are nothing more than an inconvenience. However, when negligence occurs in the field of health care, the consequences can be life-altering and even life-ending. Physicians, surgeons and all health care workers in Oregon are entrusted with the lives of their patients, and this responsibility may sometimes be taken for granted. A woman in another state recently lost her life as a result of alleged medical negligence, and her mother has filed a lawsuit.
