Medical Malpractice Your Injury, Our Fight

Scottsdale, AZ Medical Malpractice Lawyer

You go to the hospital to seek treatment because you’re not feeling well. You check-in, a medical assistant may take down your medical history, a nurse may come in and check on a few things, and then you may see a physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or doctor. If your treating physician diagnoses you with something that requires medication, you may need to go to a pharmacist. If there’s an emergency situation, you may require imaging, need to see a specialist, or stay overnight and have a different set of nurses and doctors taking care of you. A respiratory technician, physical therapist, or other auxiliary health care personnel may also be involved in your care at the hospital.

In the health care system, you rely on many people to provide you with the care you need. However, if any of these medical providers makes a mistake that causes you harm, you could end up dealing with a much worse condition than when you originally sought treatment.

It’s bad enough to have a new illness or injuries to deal with, but then there’s the cost of this mistake that makes matters worse. Know that you can turn to a Scottsdale medical malpractice lawyer to fight for you to get the financial settlement you deserve when someone else’s negligence caused you harm (at no fault of your own).

Buckingham & Vega Law Firm protects the rights of medical malpractice victims. The costs of another’s mistake could have prolonged an illness, causing you avoidable suffering and leading to you undergoing treatment for something you didn’t have. The damage done by a mistake like this may not be reversible. It may have been life-altering and left behind permanent injuries. It could have even claimed a loved one’s life. The key element among medical malpractice incidents is that they all are attributable to negligence, and they are all preventable.

Affording the treatment to fix a medical mistake can be astronomical—that’s why you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney on your side. Our medical malpractice lawyers in Scottsdale, AZ will seek full and fair compensation on your behalf.

Why Do You Need a Medical Malpractice Lawyer on Your Side?

Medical malpractice plaintiffs often face an uphill battle when seeking justice for injuries after they’ve been harmed due to a medical malpractice event. Holding negligent medical professionals accountable takes an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who specializes in this area of Arizona law and has experience building strong personal injury cases to help you have a successful outcome in your own legal matter.

Any attorney you hire to represent you should:

Have Knowledge About Arizona Statutes of Limitations

Your lawyer should be aware of the statute of limitations that applies to personal injury cases like yours and make sure to file your medical malpractice claim within that statute of limitations. In Arizona, victims have two years after suffering an injury to come forward and file a claim or medical malpractice lawsuit.

However, there are some exceptions to this rule that may apply to your case, such as:

  • If you became aware of your injury or illness stemming from the medical negligence some time after its onset (in other words, the harm caused wasn’t immediately apparent)
  • When the medical malpractice victim was a minor when the error or mistake occurred

Make Sure You Don’t Accept a Lowball Offer

Your attorney should also be committed to protecting you from settlements that are far less than you deserve for the pain, stress, and other adversities you’ve had to endure.

We know the legal process can be long and arduous. Many medical malpractice victims, especially ones representing themselves without the assistance of legal counsel, often make the mistake of accepting an insurance company’s first settlement offer. They do this because they either think that they won’t receive another (better) settlement offer or simply because they just want to move on with their life.

However, if the settlement is far less than the costs you’ve amassed or what you feel is fair for the losses you’ve endured, then you may run into unnecessary financial troubles later as you realize you need additional, expensive medical care and have to miss work. Your Buckingham & Vega Law Firm attorney will accurately calculate the proper compensation you’re owed and negotiate to get the best settlement offer for you.

Be Open To Providing Legal Representation in a Courtroom

Settling with an insurance company outside of court isn’t always possible. That may be the case because:

  • The insurer is denying liability
  • An insurer is not willing to accept the monetary amount you demanded for noneconomic damages

If your medical malpractice case proceeds to trial, you’ll definitely want an Arizona trial lawyer on your side. Presenting personal injury cases in court to juries is an entire skill in and of itself. Our Scottsdale medical malpractice attorneys can help you prepare for this legal process, so you’re ready when the time comes to try your case in front of a judge and jury.

In all situations, whether your medical malpractice case ends up being settled through negotiation or litigation, having a lawyer means that you will have someone representing your best interests at every turn. If there’s one detail you should know about our Buckingham & Vega Law Firm team, it’s that we’re going to fight for your financial future so you can proceed with your recovery with peace of mind.
