Medical negligence cases are technically complex and expensive to prepare and try. Assembling a panel of doctors as expert witnesses who are willing to testify against another doctor is not easy.
At Barton Trial Attorneys our unique trial team includes a doctor, not just medical malpractice lawyers. Together, we carefully evaluate each case. If we agree to accept a case, it is because we are confident that negligence has occurred, that the client should be compensated, and that the persons or institutions at fault should be held accountable.
In 2002, our firm obtained a record Oregon verdict in an obstetrical malpractice claim. Prior to trial, the highest offer to settle the matter out of court was $250,000. When the jury returned from deliberations, they handed down an $8,455,000 verdict. The verdict was not appealed by the insurance company. Our experience as medical malpractice attorneys, combined with our resources, equals outstanding results.
