Negligence and medical treatment

Most people go to medical professionals for care because heath care providers are generally understood as being the people who are most capable of making sound judgments regarding a person's health. The specialization within the medical world often means that certain health care providers are even more qualified than others to prescribe treatment for particular issues.

Hospitals must do more to prevent error-related deaths

Preventable medical errors are a major problem in hospitals in Arizona and across the United States, according to many studies. In fact, three reports concluded that hospital negligence causes the deaths of more than 200,000 Americans each year as well as a countless number of noon-fatal injuries.

Birth injury lawsuits in Arizona

High blood pressure can be a sign of preeclampsia in expectant mothers, and OB-GYNs in Arizona and around the country tend to monitor systolic and diastolic pressures closely during the second half of pregnancies. The condition causes the onset of violent seizures known as eclampsia, and early delivery of the baby is the only treatment currently offered by medical science. Failing to diagnose eclampsia can have dire consequences as the condition is one of the leading causes of death among pregnant women in the United States.

Failures to diagnose or treat group B strep infections

In Arizona, some pregnant women are carriers of group B streptococcus, a bacteria that is commonly found in the rectum and the vagina. While this bacteria is harmless for adults, mothers can pass it to their babies, and the infants can suffer serious health effects as a result. If your doctor failed to properly diagnose group B strep or to treat it appropriately, you may have sufficient legal grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.

When surgeons and nurses are negligent

Many Arizona patients undergo surgery each year, and they do so expecting that their doctors and nurses will perform the operations competently. Unfortunately, some medical professionals do not exhibit the quality of care that is expected of them. If your surgeon was negligent, you may be facing debilitating, life-altering injuries as a result.
