Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional performs a negligent act that harms a patient. The question to ask when determining if negligence has occurred is: Would a reasonable healthcare provider in the same situation have handled your case differently?
Winning a medical malpractice suit can be extremely difficult. It requires experienced attorneys who know how to conduct a thorough investigation, build a strong case, and explain complex medical issues to a jury of regular people.
A skilled malpractice attorney will identify the at-fault party and show how that person’s negligence caused you harm. Factors that may contribute to malpractice include gross incompetence, poor hiring practices, and faulty hospital procedures.
Your attorney will take the following steps as part of their investigation:
- Analyze your medical records
- Interview all witnesses
- Review hospital procedures
- Make sure all evidence is preserved
- Consult with expert witnesses
Doctors and other healthcare workers are highly trained professionals, and hospitals are required to create safeguards to protect patients from medical errors. But this doesn’t always prevent them from missing obvious warning signs. Mistakes that harm patients simply can’t be tolerated.

In Arizona, there’s no limit to the amount of damages a patient may receive when a medical practitioner fails to comply with the appropriate standard of care. But there is a two-year statute of limitations that begins when you first discover that you may have been the victim of medical malpractice.
In some cases, medical malpractice is apparent right away, like when a surgeon mistakenly operates on your right leg, but the tumor they were supposed to remove is in your left leg.
In other cases, the patient could go years before they discover medical malpractice. You may suffer from cramps and discomfort because a doctor neglected to remove a sponge or some other type of surgical implement.
Your medical malpractice attorney will calculate your damages and file a claim that covers the true extent of your expenses. This may include:
- Current and future medical costs
- Time missed from work
- Pain and suffering
- Nursing care
- Loss of earning potential
- Home ramps and auto lifts for wheelchair access
- Wrongful death
You should never have to pay for another person’s careless behavior. That’s why we fight to get you justice.
