Whiplash can require medical treatment

You may feel sore a day or two after a minor car accident. "It is just whiplash, give it a few days and you will feel better," is the advice you may receive from friends and co-workers. However, at the Law Offices of Brian R. Whitehead, PC, we understand that not only is whiplash painful, it can also signal a serious injury. You and other Oregon residents may want to learn more about this common and frequently excruciating injury.

What must you prove in a medical malpractice case?

If you have suffered an injury or illness due to an Oregon health care professional's negligence, you probably know that you can sue that person for malpractice. You can also join the facility or practice that employs him or her in your lawsuit. But what must you prove in order to prevail in your suit?

How common is medical misdiagnosis?

If you are like millions of other Americans, you have paid a visit to an outpatient clinic or emergency room with hopes of receiving a diagnosis as to what is ailing you. People put their trust in medical professionals to evaluate their symptoms, inspect their physical vital signs and determine what is wrong. You may be surprised to learn, however, that as many as 12 million people in the U.S. are misdiagnosed when they are seen by healthcare professionals in these settings.
