Arizona Medical Malpractice Attorneys
In Arizona as elsewhere, medical malpractice is a legal issue of negligence. In this type of negligence, the patient is injured or suffers due to the actions of a doctor, nurse, pharmacist or other healthcare workers. The injury may be due to the medical professionals’ failure to provide information of risks involved in treatment or options to treatment that may be available and relevant to the medical need.
There are many steps to building a successful medical malpractice case. These steps include a thorough evaluation before the case is filed, to verify crucial findings, determine if a misdiagnosis occurred, surgical errors were made, medical devices or implements were misused, reckless birth procedures occurred, pharmacist mistakes led to improper dosing or issuing of the wrong medications, or other negligent acts were committed.

Medical malpractice lawsuits require skilled and dedicated legal representation. Medical professionals play a major role in our lives, just as we rely on their competence for our own well-being. For future generations to be safe in medical care and so improvements will be made, it is important to hold medical professionals accountable for their mistakes, just as is expected for professionals in other fields.
Permanent impairment due to medical malpractice can lead to settlements of $100,000 or even more than $10 million. The amount of the settlement comes from the total cost of medical bills, level of the experienced pain and suffering, cost of living and amount lost from employment damages.
Medical bills can easily exceed $100,000 when hospital stays and physical or vocational rehab are required for recovery. These bills are a big concern for most people, with payment causing a great deal of stress as one of the family’s biggest priorities. In some circumstances of medical malpractice injury, the insurance company adjuster quickly reaches out to the victim to arrange settlement. But these quick settlements are often gross underpayment for what injured parties are actually owed. The adjuster says things that sound enticing, such as paying “several times the medical bills.” But even these settlements are not enough to cover the lifelong expenses of injuries, life care and vocational rehabilitation.
You should never accept a settlement from an insurance company adjuster without first speaking with an experienced attorney at Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law who knows what you are owed for medical malpractice. These cases are unique and require the specialized knowledge and skill of attorneys who handle these types of cases on a regular basis. Although a settlement offer may sound like a good option, you need to be fully informed about how much the injuries and other damages will cost you over a lifetime. Reach out to the experienced medical malpractice lawyers of the Cantor Team before accepting any settlement offer.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering costs are calculated along with employment losses and family damages. To understand how much pain and suffering is worth, your legal team must consider what your life care costs will be, along with expected impact on your life. Juries tend to award larger amounts for victim and family pain and suffering than all other amounts combined. This is because juries recognize that there is no amount of money that can truly compensate for lifelong constant pain, inability to go back to work or decreased mobility. Even when the injured person can go back to work, life enjoyment is seriously compromised.

Life Care Costs
Life care costs are the victim’s future medical bills and the amount needed to ensure adequate rehabilitation and in-home care. For most of these cases, in-home care is provided by a family member. The insurance company may say that this means these services are “free.” But they are not free, as the family member loses the ability to pursue other activities outside of the home and may be limited in their career options. They also experience great stress in their responsibility for their loved one, suffering in many ways themselves.
Employment damages can be a significant part of a medical malpractice case. Many injured victims are unable to go back to work because of their injuries, while others must seek work in a different field. These secondary fields of work usually do not provide a wage that compares to the original, pre-injury income. The most severely injured victims are not able to pursue any work at all, for the rest of their life. When children are the victims of medical malpractice, they may not be able to attend college or gain vocational training needed to help them secure a job. All of these circumstances require the help of skilled medical malpractice lawyers, such as those of the Cantor Team.
