Arizona Medical Malpractice

General Medical Negligence – Phoenix Malpractice Attorneys – Arizona

Medical Negligence - Phoenix Malpractice Attorneys - Arizona Burg SimpsonWhen you or a loved one is injured during the course of medical treatment, it can often be difficult to address the question of whether the injury – and the circumstances that led to that injury – constitute medical negligence or malpractice. The medical malpractice lawyers at Burg Simpson Arizona can help answer that question.

Negligence is the base of any successful medical malpractice claim. It is defined as any act – or failure to act – by a medical professional that deviates from the accepted standard of medical care. But negligence alone is not enough to establish medical malpractice. That negligence has to result in an injury. These actions can include:

  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Childbirth Injuries
  • Dental Injuries
  • Emergency Room Errors
  • Failure to Diagnose Cancer
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Negligence during Childbirth
  • Medication or Prescription Errors
  • Surgical Errors or Failures

If you believe you or a loved one has suffered from medical negligence, reach out to Burg Simpson Arizona right away. We will build your case to prove that the medical professional in question acted negligently during the course of your treatment. We offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation and will be able to decide your best course of action. Contact the malpractice attorneys in Arizona at Burg Simpson by calling 602-777-7000 or complete a Free Case Evaluation form here.

One of the trickier aspects of a medical malpractice claim is figuring out the responsible party. Was it the lead surgeon? Or was it an inattentive anesthesiologist? Or was it an exhausted nurse who administered the wrong medication? The responsible parties can include:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Hospital staff/administration
  • Emergency room staff
  • Nursing home staff
  • Pharmacists
  • Drug manufacturers

If you or a family member has been seriously injured because of a medical professional negligence, you could be eligible for compensation to cover:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Rehabilitation
  • Special education needs
  • Long-term care
  • Loss of income, including current and potential income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and/or companionship

If medical negligence has left you seriously injured or even disabled, call a medical injury lawyer to fight for your rights. Call our Burg Simpson Arizona office at 602-777-7000.

In Arizona, injured parties generally have two years from the date of injury. For minors, the statute of limitations does not start until the victim turns 18. If you have been seriously injured and you are convinced a doctor’s negligence is to blame, don’t wait to talk to a Phoenix malpractice lawyer with Burg Simpson, call 602-777-7000 today.

What Makes Medical Malpractice Different in Arizona?

Every state treats claims of medical malpractice differently. In Arizona, there are a host of statutes, rules, and case law that separates it from most states. Medical malpractice is handled very differently in the Grand Canyon State, so you need the experience of a trained Arizona medical malpractice lawyer. Contact Burg Simpson as soon as possible. Fill out our Free Case Evaluation Form right now or call our Phoenix office directly at 602-777-7000.
