Portland OR Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Knowledgeable Portland OR Medical Malpractice Attorneys Ready To Help You

Medical negligence is estimated to kill 98,000 Americans every year.

Countless other patients sustain serious injuries as a result of mistakes that occur during surgery, from wrong or missed diagnosis, or from medication errors. If you or a loved one suffered from a medical mistake, speak with our medical malpractice lawyers and find out if you have a case.

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement estimates there are 15 million incidents of medical harm inflicted each year. Wrong limbs are removed, tests that prove serious illness are ignored, injury or death is sustained at birth, or patients die from negligence in nursing homes or care facilities.

Doctors and other healthcare providers make mistakes – like any other professionals. When their mistakes fall below the standard of care and cause injury, they are held responsible for medical negligence or malpractice laws.

Instead of admitting accountability, medical professionals, hospitals, or nursing homes in Greater Portland and across Oregon and Washington, often choose to ignore the harm they have caused. Many facilities have large risk assessment departments that defend their staff and help the insurance company avoid taking care of victims.

Medical negligence cases are often complex. Expert testimony is required in nearly every case to show that a healthcare practitioner has fallen below the standard of care. An investigative review is necessary to assess accountability. Though cases may be settled or resolved, insurance companies increasingly choose to litigate these complex and expensive cases.

What constitutes “just” compensation for the life-altering effects of medical malpractice? This is a challenging question, and many people will rightfully feel that no amount of money can compensate for what they have lost. If you are unable to work, enjoy life, or place your trust in another doctor, it may seem that no amount of money can truly provide “just” compensation.

But, the direct financial costs of injuries, illnesses, and complications caused by medical malpractice can be substantial, and the compensation available for non-financial costs will often far exceed the damages that are recoverable for out-of-pocket losses. Filing a medical malpractice claim is also important for holding your health care provider accountable and reducing the likelihood of similar mistakes being made in the future. As a result, if you are a victim of medical malpractice, it is extremely important that you take the necessary action to assert your legal rights.

The DLG mission states “We are committed to securing justice for people and their families when they have been injured.”I’ve never secured a law firm, was completely overwhelmed with pain and daunted by the challenging insurance settlement process. My DLG experience far exceeded my expectations. The DLG team was true to their mission and demonstrated this at every step of the legal process.I was rear-ended by a semi-truck and had multiple injuries. From the initial consult, demand letter and compiling hundreds of treatment records to several rounds of negotiation and final settlement – they were committed to my case. Tom D’Amore is professional, extremely smart, honest and leads with integrity. I’ve read that he has many industry awards and accolades – and now that I’ve worked with him, I can absolutely see why.When I was injured, I was so immersed in a world of pain, medical treatments, therapies and getting better. The thought of dealing with the opposing insurance company, justifying injuries and medical expenses was completely overwhelming.Luckily, I had Tom and the DLG team to take this on and manage on my behalf. I knew that my case was in the most capable hands and was confident that no team would work harder for me than DLG. They were successful in securing justice for me – just like their mission states.Based on my experience, I would wholeheartedly recommend DLG to my family and friends.

No one wants to be in a car accident, especially one that requires a lawyer's representation.I was in a horrible accident in the summer of 2021 that left my car totalled and my right radius 100% fractured. My mom found Doug Oh-Keith for me and I'm so grateful she did.While I was going through 2 surgeries, living with an external fixator, going through months of physical therapy and coming to terms with the loss of my career, Doug was handling everything else for me. He is, as my mom calls him, a shark - which is exactly the type of lawyer you want working for you. He managed to settle my lawsuit in just over a year, which is apparently very quick for a car accident settlement.I signed a few documents for him, sent him all of my bills, and he handled literally everything else for me.I was rear ended again earlier this year and that case is definitely not big enough to warrant a lawyer, but it's giving me a clear picture of just how much Doug handled for me.There's literally no way that I would have been able to take care of everything Doug did.If you're looking for a lawyer for a car accident, give D'Amore Law Group a call. They are absolutely amazing and, while I hope I never ever ever go through anything like this last year again, I feel secure in knowing that if I do, I can call them up again and they'll fight for me to get what I deserve. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to help me.

I worked with Sean Stokes and he was fabulous! Sean was always professional and pushed to get the maximum pay out from my accident. He was very ethical and was always willing to answer my questions. No one wants a lawsuit, but if you find yourself in this situation, Sean would be the person to turn to.

I am a software consultant and have been working with D'Amore Law Group for 14 years. As a software consultant I always appreciate a firm that has their computer network running efficiently because they have excellent IT support. In my experience, firms that keep their software up-to-date and their staff trained has more time to spend on their client's needs. D'Amore Law Group is one of those firms.
