Every day patients are injured and killed by the negligence of doctors, nurses, dentists, and other licensed health care providers. The attorneys at Bode & Collins, P.L.C. are dedicated to helping these patients and their families.
You may be surprised to learn that an unanticipated or unsuccessful result from a medical procedure or treatment does not, standing alone, prove medical malpractice. To bring a claim for medical malpractice Arizona law requires the claimant prove that the licensed health care provider owed a duty of care, fell below the standard of care, and that his or her negligence caused or contributed to claimant’s injury. With rare exception, the testimony of qualified medical experts is needed to accomplish this.
Some examples of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical Errors (e.g. removing the wrong organ)
- Prescribing the Wrong Medication or an Incorrect Dose of Medication
- Missing a Diagnosis or Failing to Diagnose
- Failing to Order a Necessary Test or Act on the Results of a Test
- Nursing Errors (e.g. failing to note a significant change in patient condition, giving medication to the wrong patient etc.)
- Failure to Properly Manage or Monitor Labor or Delivery
- Failure to Provide Necessary Emergency Treatment
- Failure to Timely Refer or Consult a Specialist
- Failure to Act Reasonably in Disclosing the Risks, Benefits and Alternatives of a Procedure or Course of Treatment.
