How to Make Out a Claim for Medical Negligence 

As the person making the claim against a medical provider, you bear the burden of proving that the medical provider was negligent and that you suffered an injury. Specifically, there are three specific elements that comprise a medical negligence action:

  1. Standard of Care -- you need to establish that the medical provider (doctor, nurse, technician, physician's assistant, etc.) provided medical care that was below the recognized standard of care for such a provider acting in that community. This is accomplished by using medical providers who have the same credentials as the medical provider who injured you to provide an expert opinion about your case. These persons serve as expert witnesses in your case and are a critical component of a medical malpractice lawsuit;

  2. Causation -- you must show that the breach of the standard of care by the medical provider who treated you caused some actual injury. Like with standard of care, this component of a medical malpractice lawsuit is also established by an expert witness. It is not enough to say that some medical provider did something wrong. You must also show that his/her negligence caused you a specific injury.

  3. Damages -- you must quantify as best as possible the damages that you have suffered as a result of the negligence. Your damages may include: medical bills that you have incurred and may incur in the future; cosmetic disfigurement; emotional pain and suffering; economic loss, including lost earnings already incurred and what may be incurred in the future; and loss of consortium (loss of enjoyment of association with loved ones)

Statute of Limitations

In Arizona, you have two years from the date of the alleged medical malpractice to file your lawsuit. Sometimes, the time between your injury and when you file the lawsuit can be extended if you did not discover your injury until later. It is always the best and safest practice to contact an attorney soon after you realize or suspect an injury caused by a medical provider to ensure that you timely file a lawsuit.
