How an Attorney Can Help

Discovering you have been the victim of improper treatment by a medical professional is taxing enough without having to figure out complex legal procedures. You’ve likely been slapped with medical bills that a doctor’s negligence caused, and the last thing you need to do is represent your own case while still recovering. With the help of an attorney, however, it’s possible to receive compensation for your medical expenses while still concentrating on your health. An experienced attorney will be able to guide you through the process of filing a medical malpractice claim and explain the specifics of Arizona’s medical malpractice laws.

Though it may be tempting to try, you should know that it can be especially challenging to represent yourself in a medical malpractice lawsuit and come out of it with the compensation you need. Doctors are usually reluctant to admit their guilt, as it could be damaging to their career, which makes these kinds of cases long and complicated. Additionally, sometimes more than one person is at fault. For example, a doctor may have received incorrect information from a nurse, which lead to a mistake in treatment. An attorney will be able to get to the bottom of these types of complicated cases. An attorney will also be able to help you collect the evidence you need to prove your case while calling on experts and medical professionals for valuable testimony that will likely be necessary to win. The legal experience of a qualified attorney is vital to the success of a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Improper Treatment Cases

Improper treatment is a type of medical malpractice in which a doctor does not effectively diagnose and treat a patient’s medical problem. Examples might be a case in which a doctor administers a treatment that would not be administered by more competent doctors in the same situation or when a doctor prescribes the correct treatment but administers it incorrectly, negatively affecting the patient’s health. The level of care that a patient should receive is called the standard of care, and when a doctor does not uphold the standard of care, and it results in an injured patient, that patient may have a case for medical malpractice.

There are many examples of improper treatment under the umbrella of medical malpractice, including:

  • Surgery errors: A doctor might recommend a dangerous and unnecessary surgery or botch a surgery that was necessary, sometimes even leaving medical equipment, such as sponges or scalpels, inside a patient.
  • Premature discharge: A doctor sends a patient home before they should have been released from medical care.
  • Medication errors: A doctor prescribes the wrong type or amount of medication, leading to harm.
  • Improper testing: A doctor orders the wrong medical test for your condition, leading to harm.

Not all treatment errors are considered medical malpractice. To have a case, a doctor must have violated the standard of care, you must have been hurt by their negligence, and your damages must have been significant. The standard of care is not set by law, but rather a subjective standard based on what other competent professionals in the same circumstances would have done.
