The Supreme Court of Oregon ruled on May 11 that it would reverse a decision by a court of appeals in a medical malpractice case involving the “loss of chance” legal theory. 

The plaintiff is allowed to recover for emotional and physical damages. In 2015, Joseph L. Smith filed suit against Providence Health & Services, doing business as Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital; Linda L. DeSitter, M.D.; Michael R. Harris, M.D.; Hood River Emergency Physicians LLC; Hood River Medical Group PC; and Providence Medical Group.
