What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider — a doctor, surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist, etc. — is negligent, and that negligence causes a serious injury or death. While no amount of money can ever replace what you or an injured loved one has lost, a medical malpractice case can help you afford the care you may need and compensate you for what you have lost.

Why Hire A Medical Malpractice Attorney in Phoenix, Arizona?

Medical malpractice cases are expensive and difficult. Doctors and hospitals will fight in almost every case. MDK Law Group has medical malpractice attorneys in Arizona who use resources and experience to ensure their clients receive the best representation and recovery available.

Sometimes the doctor does something unreasonable, like prescribing the wrong medicine or operating on the wrong part of the body during surgery.

  • Mistakes made by medical facilities or staff negligence

What Compensation Is Available In a Phoenix Medical Malpractice Claim?

A successful medical malpractice claim is one where the victim recovers the compensation necessary to make themselves “whole.” It is important to keep in mind that being made whole may not necessarily mean that there is a full recovery. There are times when individuals sustain injuries or illnesses as a result of a medical mistake and never fully recover due to a disability, possible scarring, or disfigurement. In a fatal medical malpractice case, our team of wrongful death attorneys in Phoenix can help secure maximum compensation you deserve. Our Phoenix medical malpractice lawyers strive to recover both economic and noneconomic damages from medical malpractice victims in the Phoenix area.

  • Economic damages. For a medical malpractice claim, economic damages are going to revolve around calculable expenses the victim incurs as a result of the error. These are the types of losses that the victim and their legal team will be able to add up by gathering any bills or receipts that come in after the incident. The most common economic damages related to a medical malpractice claim include:
    • Medical bills are rising as a result of the mistake
    • Any follow-up or in-home medical care needed
    • Physical therapy or rehabilitation
    • Medical devices or prescription medications
    • The cost of transportation to and from medical visits
    • Various out-of-pocket expenses
    • Lost wages if a victim cannot work
  • Non-economic damages. Non-economic damages related to medical malpractice claims are not as easy to calculate as the economic damages we just listed. These types of damages revolve around how they affect a victim in more “unseen” ways. This includes compensation for a medical malpractice victim’s physical pain and suffering, emotional and psychological trauma, loss of quality of life, and a loss of consortium with a spouse.

Time Limit for Filing Medical Malpractice Claims in Arizona

Every state sets time limits for how long individuals have to file a medical malpractice claim after the initial incident occurs. In Arizona, the medical malpractice statute of limitations is typically two years from the date of the alleged mistake. However, Arizona does follow the “discovery rule,” which means that a medical malpractice victim can file a claim within two years from the date they knew or reasonably should have known that a medical error caused their injuries or losses.

There are various circumstances where the medical malpractice statute of limitations could be paused, which includes scenarios where the victim is under the age of 18 or considered mentally disabled. In those situations, the individuals will typically have an extended deadline, but we strongly encourage you to speak to a skilled medical malpractice lawyer in Phoenix who can help you through this process.
