Medical Malpractice

Although most members of the public have a deep, well-earned trust in their personal physicians, doctors and other health care providers are not infallible.

Unfortunately, mistakes can and do occur, and when this happens, the result may be a medical malpractice lawsuit. These lawsuits almost always wind up in litigation, and costs can be staggering because these situations often have catastrophic consequences. Malpractice insurance companies employ teams of very skilled lawyers for the sole purpose of keeping malpractice payouts to an absolute minimum, so these cases can be extremely tricky to win, which is why having the right medical malpractice lawyers on your side is an essential part of navigating a favorable outcome when these claims land in court.

Mistakes to Avoid When Filing a Medical Malpractice Suit

Filing a malpractice suit often isn’t the first thing on someone’s mind when faced with one of the scenarios above. While understandable, this can work against you if you or a loved one has experienced a catastrophic injury due to medical malpractice. The state of Arizona has enacted a two-year statute of limitations when it comes to these cases, and waiting too long to hire an attorney can have negative consequences. Medical malpractice suits are highly complex undertakings that involve deep analysis and investigation, and most medical malpractice lawyers decline to accept cases where people have waited a year and a half or more to decide to file a complaint. To ensure best results, it’s important to speak with a qualified attorney as soon as possible after the incident occurs.

Another consideration is that the state of Arizona requires plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases to hire expert witnesses to testify on the stand, and this can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. For this reason, we carefully assess cases based on the potential damages and decline to take those where the damages don’t significantly offset the high costs these cases usually entail.
