What is malpractice and negligence? Medical malpractice is defined by negligence by a medical professional such as a doctor, hospital or their staff which resulted in harm, injury or death. A doctor, nurse or hospital can be sued to failing to order tests, misdiagnosis, overdose of medication, poor technique, delaying treatment or other unreasonable conduct, which may cause injury to a patient.

Doctors will rarely admit they have done anything wrong that would determine any type of medical malpractice. They may try to “cover up” their error, you may even encounter a “wall of silence” where you will always get the run around or where other doctors do not want to speak adversely against the treating doctor who is in question. This means that you may think something had happened to a loved one or yourself, but will never get the right answer. Law firms that accept medical malpractice cases will invest substantial time and money in order to expose the truth.
Did you know: In Arizona medical malpractice cases or professional negligence cases, the provider must fail to act in accordance with a reasonable standard of care, which causes the injury.
Some examples of medical malpractice cases include:
- Failure to diagnose a retinal detachment resulting in blindness
