Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Tucson, AZ

Medical malpractice claims are taken very seriously by the court system in the United States. For 2011 in the state of Arizona, the average medical malpractice claim paid $350,000 in compensation to the victim of a health care provider who failed to provide the appropriate level of care.

If you feel you have been injured because a medical professional failed to meet the standard of care, you should know your rights. Those rights include compensation for your injuries and may even include amounts for emotional pain and suffering. Any of the following professionals may be involved in a medical malpractice claim:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Physician Assistants
  • Chiropractors
  • Therapists
  • Dentists

Medical malpractice can occur in many ways either due the actions of a health care provider or to their inaction. Sometimes, doing nothing or causing delay when a patient is faced with a serious illness can have a devastating effect on the outcome.

Medical malpractice covers a wide array of injuries including those above, and others, such as surgical errors such as wrong-site surgery, anesthesia errors, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, medication errors and care-related infections.

If any of these situations apply to you, it is important to seek experienced legal advice as soon as possible in order to preserve your rights. Since 1989, the experienced Tucson medical malpractice attorneys of Goldberg & Osborne have been serving personal injury victims just like you.
