Phoenix Medical Negligence Lawyer

Medical negligence cases are among the most complex cases to pursue on behalf of injured patients. Medical negligence or medical malpractice applies to those licensed health care professionals who work in a position that requires special training, such as a doctor. By law, these professionals have to be very careful in the duties that they perform so as not to cause harm to their patients and clients. It should be noted, however, that medical negligence is not limited to only those working as doctors.
In Arizona, there are several other types of medical professionals that can face a medical malpractice lawsuit, including:

  • Dentists
  • Nurses
  • Hospitals
  • Physician assistants
  • Chiropractors
  • Nursing Homes
  • Surgical Centers

If you believe you have a claim of medical malpractice, it is imperative that you seek guidance from an attorney who has experience in handling medical negligence cases. This type of attorney can assess your case and let you know if you have a viable claim for suing the professional or health care company who you believe caused your injury through malpractice.

It is important to understand that negligence and poor medical outcomes are two separate things. Not every patient who suffers a poor medical outcome has a viable claim for medical malpractice and a medical negligence attorney will be able to investigate and help you understand if your outcome was the result of malpractice.

Medical negligence takes place when a medical professional fails to treat you consistent with the standard of care within the particular medical specialty. The standard of care is what a reasonably prudent medical professional would do in the same or similar circumstances. If your treatment provider falls below this standard of care and causes a serious injury then you may have a viable claim for medical negligence.

There are many forms of compensation that may be due to you if you have been a victim of medical negligence. First and foremost, you are due compensation that covers your medical bills that were incurred as a result of the negligence. In addition, if you had to take time off of work because of your injury, you may be due compensation that makes up for your lost wages. If you have suffered a permanent impairment that prevents you from working then you may be entitled to claim lost wages for your lifetime.

Not just any attorney can effectively handle a medical negligence lawsuit. This is why it is imperative that you speak with a lawyer who has experience handling these types of cases.
