Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serving Arizona
Dedicated Representation for Victims of Medical Negligence – When we seek medical care, we expect to get better, not come out injured. Unfortunately, despite our advances in technology and experience, medical procedures intended to treat ailments can still result in accidents and unexpected injury. In fact, medical errors could account for more than 250,000 lost lives each year, according to researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, in addition to other injuries and medical setbacks. When such “errors” are the result of a doctor’s negligence, a personal injury case pursued by an aggressive medical malpractice attorney can right the wrong.
Medical malpractice is a special type of personal injury case that claims negligence by a doctor, hospital, nursing home, outpatient center, or other healthcare provider. Like other personal injury cases, negligence must be proven, demonstrating that a doctor did not meet the “standard of care”. Proving this can be challenging, and often requires the use of medical experts and other well-documented evidence. If you’ve already suffered pain and frustration after a procedure meant to improve your health went wrong, dealing with additional doctors and insurance companies can feel overwhelming, especially when faced with pressure to settle quickly. A trained medical malpractice attorney, like the ones serving Arizona at Bellah Perez, will know how the system works, and can ensure your case doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.
Some common malpractice cases include:
- Birth injuries
- Failure to diagnose a serious medical condition
- Improper surgical procedures
- Emergency room errors
- Medication and dosage errors
- Errors in administering anesthesia
- Administration of other improper medical procedures
If you have suffered from any of these cases of negligence, a healthcare malpractice lawyer can fight for your compensation. Damages can cover hospital and surgery bills, insurance expenses, loss of income in the past and future, physical therapy or rehab, and pain and suffering, whether physical, emotional, or psychological.
