- Is a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit in Arizona Necessary?
We are taught from an early age that we should trust our medical care providers when it comes to their diagnoses, their opinions and their recommendations. However, doctors and other medical professionals can and will make mistakes from time to time, and when they do the patient can pay an extremely heavy price. When these situations arise, it can be difficult for those who are suffering or for their families to understand when it’s advisable to seek the help of an Arizona medical malpractice lawyer. Below is a brief introduction to when this step may be necessary.
The Arizona Standard for Medical Malpractice Claims
When someone is harmed during the course of medical care and that person files an Arizona medical malpractice lawsuit, there is a particular standard that’s used by the court to determine if the medical professional who is the defendant should be held liable for the damages incurred and the suffering endured by the patient who is now the plaintiff. Specifically, medical professionals are held to the standard of reasonable medical professionals in similar situations. Therefore, if a case is filed, the court will compare the conduct of the defendant to what a reasonable doctor, nurse or other professional would have done in a similar situation. If the court finds that the reasonable professional would have acted differently, the defendant will usually be held liable.

Unfortunately, people who do not have medical and/or legal backgrounds may not always know when the standard described above has not been met. All they know is that the patient has suffered from additional illness, has encountered a need for additional medical procedures or has even died as a result of a failure of medical professionals to act properly. Generally, when instinct tells someone that something went terribly wrong and that it could have been a mistake by a medical professional, that person should review the situation with the help of a professional.
If you or someone you love has suffered as a result of what you believe was a mistake made by a medical professional, you need to seek the help of Phoenix injury attorneys who have been holding those responsible for this type of harm accountable for many years.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
