Many residents of Arizona are likely to require medical care or surgery at some point in their life. When events are unforeseen and lead to the unexpected injury or death of an individual, doctor error may be to blame. While medical facilities have several sanctions in place to avoid such accidents, you or your loved ones may aim to seek legal redress against negligent health care professionals.
If proper care is not taken during the birthing process, both the mother and child may be at risk of harm. Both doctors and attending nurses are responsible for the care administered to the patients, and errors such as lack of informed consent, delivery of wrong medication or excessive force may lead to long-term injuries or even death.
Medical malpractice suit settlements should be deliberate and slow; rushing through such a procedure may lead to missed information and, in some cases, a reduction of awarded compensation. A firm's reputation as both aggressive and experienced may aid in the litigation process if defense attorneys fear an impending trial. Whether in a pretrial settlement or jury verdict, our firm strives to achieve favorable results for our clients.
