An Oregon clinic is facing a negligence lawsuit from the family of an Oregon woman who died four days after a procedure meant to relieve her migraine headaches.
The Eugene Register-Guard reported that the family of 47-year-old Springfield woman Christine Port filed a $2.2 million wrongful death lawsuit last week.
The suit accuses Dr. Miguel Estevez of negligence in his treatment of Port when she became short of breath after a 2013 optical nerve block procedure.
The case’s other defendant is Neurology Associates of Eugene-Springfield, which does business with Oregon Neurology Associates.
The medical clinic declined to comment on allegations in the lawsuit.
