What Constitutes Malpractice in Arizona?

An individual may file a malpractice suit for several reasons. An improper surgery may result in unnecessary scarring and pain that an individual must deal with for the rest of their life; worse, a simple medication error can result in an unexpected death, leaving a grieving family in the wake.

A personal injury can result during any step of treatment:

  • A failure to diagnose a condition, or a misdiagnosis
  • Prescribing an incorrect treatment
  • Wrong medication dosages
  • Errors in surgery, or instigating an unnecessary surgery
  • Failure to provide adequate care after a procedure

For a claim to be admissible, a claimant must prove that the doctor/medical practitioner violated a widely-accepted standard of care and that the violation caused an injury resulting in significant damage.

You shouldn’t have to suffer from an injury sustained during medical treatment. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens to innocent people across the country every day. Whether their injury is a result of simple negligence or an error during a procedure, individuals suffer as a result of medical malpractice.

No two individuals have exactly the same health considerations, so no two medical malpractice cases are exactly alike. We examine each case individually to find the best approach and to determine how much a client can expect to recover in damages.
