When 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

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:
- Hospital staff/administration
- Emergency room staff
- Nursing home staff
- Drug manufacturers
