Medical Malpractice Lawyer With The Right Combination Of Experience And Skills
As Americans, we place a lot of trust in our medical professionals. When something goes wrong, we are slow to blame it on negligence. But the reality is that many thousands of people suffer serious medical problems and wrongful death every year due to errors by doctors, surgeons, nurses and even hospital staff members.
I am attorney Robert Beatty-Walters in Portland, Oregon. As a registered nurse for more than 35 years, I know how hard medical professionals work. (Prior to becoming an attorney, I worked as a registered nurse in pediatrics, emergency room and neonatal intensive care and continue to maintain my license.) But I also know that the medical “industry” does everything it can to protect its own when mistakes are made. Hiring an experienced lawyer who focuses exclusively on medical malpractice litigation is your best option for obtaining the compensation you are entitled to.
My law firm represents people throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington who have been injured due to medical malpractice, including family members of people who have died because of medical negligence. I work aggressively to seek damages and compensation for people injured because of negligence by:
- Medical clinics
- Hospital procedures and policies
- Orderlies and staff
- General practitioners
- Medical specialists
- Other licensed medical professionals

Building Solid Medical Negligence Cases
Because of the complexity of medical malpractice and medical negligence cases, you need an attorney who is detail-oriented and has a working knowledge of medical terminology. Medical malpractice cases are among the most complex types of litigation. I draw on my experience working as a registered nurse, but I know that often isn’t enough. When necessary, my firm hires independent experts to reconstruct diagnosis and treatment timelines to build evidence. I strive to work with professional witnesses across the spectrum of health care, including:
- Hospital administrators
- Vocational trainers
- Physical therapists
- Legal nurse consultants
Although I work aggressively to achieve settlements for our clients, you can trust that you will have a vigorous, experienced fighter on your side if your case goes to trial.
