Medford Medical Malpractice Attorney Firm
If you or a loved one was injured at the hands of a physician or medical facility, the personal injury attorneys at Reed Law firm are here to consult with you and your family to evaluate the case and discuss your options.
Many malpractice injuries are caused by well-meaning practitioners who either lacked training or were overworked in an understaffed ward. Both problems stem from higher management priorities. In the trade-off between profits and proper care, sometimes patients get shorted and suffer tragic results.
In a medical malpractice case we handled, our client’s paralyzed wife fell out of bed due to negligent positioning positioning by the staff. They left the guard rail down, and her nursing care gown had strong ties around the neck, rather than safer Velcro straps. Later that night, her legs gradually slid off the bed, while her gown remained hooked to the bed frame, causing strangulation and ultimately death.
The insurance lawyers suggested it was a suicide. They ignored our client’s inability at moving any part of her body, so that it was physically impossible for her to commit suicide. The truth did not matter. They defended their money interests at all costs, even to the extent lying about the deceased woman.
When Medical Malpractice occurs, a state agency can often look into what happened, which may require you to lodge a complaint and request an investigation. If the facts show neglect, carelessness, or abuse resulted in the injury or death, then the agency’s investigation may contain important evidence like witness statements, photos, and even expert opinions/findings. When warranted, filing legitimate neglect and abuse cases serves to protect the public and hold professionals accountable so that the same mistake doesn’t happen to someone else.
Reed Law Firm can settle most medical malpractice and neglect cases for fair and just payment without going to trial. An estimated 95% of our cases settle without going to the courthouse. And if your case is one of the few that does have to go to trial, then we have the skills and experience to win. One of our recent trial verdicts was $550,000 against a premier Portland defense law firm.*

They have experts on their side; you need an expert on yours.
