Arizona Medical Malpractice

Arizona Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Sometimes, tragically, medical care can do more harm than good. When that happens, you have to ask:

Did your medical provider make a mistake in your diagnosis?
Was that mistake a result of negligence?
Did that negligence leave you seriously ill or critically injured?

Most people do not realize that medical errors are a leading cause of death in this country. Medical malpractice typically takes place when a surgeon, hospital or other health care professional strays from the standard practices of their profession, which then results in the serious harm or death of a patient. Beyond physical damages occurring from medical malpractice, these incidents can also inflict emotional damages on the patient and their family. While patients place their trust and lives in the hands of these medical professionals, malpractice cases remain all too common, and Burg Simpson Arizona is here to fight for your legal rights.

Our Arizona medical malpractice lawyers are trained to handle these specific types of litigation. They will help guide you through Arizona’s medical malpractice laws and moderate the mediation process between the two opposing parties.

A CLOSER LOOK AT MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

When a surgical procedure or medical treatment leaves you sick or injured, it can be difficult to establish a medical malpractice claim. Our medical malpractice lawyers in Arizona can help. In any malpractice claim, the injured party is saddled with the burden of proof, which simply means that you and your trial attorney have to establish that:

  • Your health care provider made a mistake during your care, AND
  • That error produced or aggravated an injury, AND
  • Your injury is serious enough to warrant the expenses associated with a medical malpractice lawsuit.

If you are convinced that you were seriously hurt because of a medical provider’s negligence, reach out to the malpractice attorneys in Arizona to discuss your situation.

WHAT IS YOUR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE WORTH?

Our team of malpractice lawyers in Arizona, paralegals, and support staff will look at every situation to assess the validity of your case. Factors can include:

  • The type and degree of the injury and the treatment received.
  • The degree of responsibility borne by each party.
  • The injured party’s potential economic loss.
  • Expected medical needs and expenses.

Call us right now at 602-777-7000 so we can evaluate the specifics of your case and determine what might be worth.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO FILE A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE SUIT?

The statute of limitations in medical malpractice cases can vary dramatically by state. In Arizona, the standard deadline is two years from the date of the suspected malpractice incident. However, there are exceptions to this statute, which an experienced Arizona medical malpractice lawyer can discuss with you.

If you or a loved one has suffered from negligent medical treatment of a doctor, timing is critical. Call Burg Simpson at 602-777-7000 or complete a Free Case Evaluation Form right now to find out what your options are.

WHAT EXPERTS ARE NEEDED FOR YOUR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE – AND WHY?

When you have been hurt by a doctor’s negligence, a jury needs to hear from experts who can explain the details of what happened and how your doctor’s conduct led to your injury. To legally prove a medical malpractice case, you have to prove the medical provider exercised a treatment decision that no other reasonable physician would have made. That decision is referred to as a “breach of the standard of care.”

But you also have to illustrate how that decision and/or action led to your injury. The jury must understand what that injury is worth, in financial terms. Experts are needed to articulate this as well. This is not the type of case you can handle on your own. Burg Simpson has over 40 years of experience in medical malpractice cases in Arizona, so call us today!

WHAT ROLE DOES SUBROGATION PLAY IN A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE SUIT?

A successful medical malpractice claim typically leads to a “subrogation interest” or “subrogation lien.” As a plaintiff, it is critical you understand how this can affect your claim.

There is a provision in most health insurance plans that ensures they are reimbursed for any care they paid for between the time of your injury and your successful judgment. These liens can be handled in a number of different ways. Sometimes your medical injury lawyer will handle these liens, while they will sometimes hire someone else to settle them. Discuss this with your attorney at law and whether this will include additional fees or costs.

Because you can’t get your settlement proceeds until these liens have been settled, it is best to know that your attorneys are experienced in dealing with these liens and how to get them resolved.

Do not wait to contact our medical negligence attorneys in our Arizona office after you have been injured. Call 602-777-7000 for your free initial consultation now.
