Our lawyers will take on your case and achieve outstanding results.
WHY DO I NEED AN ARIZONA MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY
Doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare providers are held to a certain standard of care. The evaluation of their treatment of patients is based on the way other members of their profession would normally act under similar circumstances. If one of these medical professionals fails to meet a reasonable standard of care, resulting in serious injury or the death of a patient, that professional should be held liable.
You will need a medical malpractice attorney that knows the ins and outs of medical laws to help your claim reach the courts as fast as possible. Our lawyers regularly represent individuals who have serious injuries or have lost a family member due to the negligence of a physician or surgeon. Medical malpractice claims require aggressive, knowledgeable attorneys with experience and resources to properly examine and prepare the case. Our lawyers will utilize our committed support staff to help you recover maximum compensation.
In order to have a medical malpractice lawyer to take on a case and to have the claim be successful, you must have negligence by a medical professional, serious damages as a result of that negligence, and the direct cause of your injuries must be as a result of the negligence by the medical professional. It is important to note that unforeseen or unexplained complications or a poor result alone do not justify a medical malpractice claim. However, when a person is injured due to the negligence or lapse of judgment of a medical professional, the law provides a means of obtaining compensation so the injury victim can move on with his or her life. To successfully prosecute this type of case, it must be proven that the treating medical professional strayed from the accepted standard of care and that, to a reasonable degree of medical certainty, this deviation is directly responsible for the patient’s injuries.
