As a society, we put a lot of faith in medical providers to keep us healthy and safe. Unfortunately, sometimes they fall short. In the high stakes world of medicine, even small mistakes can lead to lifelong injuries, disabilities, or even death. If you or a loved one suffers a personal injury due to inadequate or inappropriate medical care, you deserve to be compensated. At Rabb & Rabb, PLLC, we’ll work tirelessly to ensure that you are paid fairly for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Understanding Medical Malpractice in Arizona
Medical malpractice can results from either action or inaction when it comes to your care in the hands of a medical provider. Obviously, accidents happen and not every condition is curable, so not all bad medical outcomes qualify as malpractice. The key is whether doctors provided treatment in line with the standard of care for your condition and symptoms. In order to make your case, we’ll work with you to put together a Certificate of Merit that includes, among other things, the testimony of a qualified medical professional saying that doctors did not meet the standard of care for your case.
Medical Malpractice Compensation
Compensation for medical malpractice claims is broken down into two categories: actual damages and punitive damages. Actual damages are paid to cover all the financial and emotional costs you have incurred as a result of your injury, including medical bills for past and future care, lost wages and future income, and pain and suffering. Punitive damages, as the name implies, exist to punish wrongdoing on behalf of physicians who are deemed to have behaved recklessly or with willful negligence. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be entitled to one or both of these forms of compensation.
