Protecting the Rights of Oregon Kaiser Permanente Medical Malpractice Victims
Medical professionals must perform consistent with a national standard of care. When substandard care results in a serious or fatal injury to a patient, it is malpractice. However, Oregon Kaiser Permanente HMO members have limited legal remedies available to pursue compensation for their damages caused by KP medical malpractice. Rather than filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in civil trial court, all medical claims against Kaiser Permanente, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Kaiser Foundation Health Plan providers must proceed through private arbitration.
If you have suffered harm as a result of the negligence, carelessness or malpractice of an Oregon based Kaiser Permanente doctor, nurse, midwife or other medical provider, it is critical to hire an experienced medical negligence attorney who understands Kaiser's arbitration system and unique rules for arbitrating medical claims. California statistics show that patients who seek compensation through Kaiser's arbitration procedures without an attorney lose 75 percent of the time.
