Oregon Jury Returns $1.4 Million Dollar Medical Malpractice Verdict

Comments Off

A Portland, Oregon jury returned a $1.4 million dollar verdict in a medical malpractice case today against Oregon Health Sciences University.

The medical malpractice case is significant because it is the first verdict in Oregon since the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled that individual doctors at OHSU can be sued beyond the tort claims cap of $100,000 non-economic damages and $100,000 economic damages.
