Any person who ever needs to visit a medical doctor or a hospital is at risk of suffering from medical malpractice. Due to our fast-paced healthcare system, doctors barely have enough time to sit with their patients to provide thorough care. The enormous pressure that doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff are under to attend to each client while adhering to the standard of care often causes them to fall short. When doctors and healthcare professionals fail to follow best practices, medical errors take place. This is all too common in a society in which an estimated 440,000 die as a result of negligence. If you believe you have suffered due to a medical professional’s inadequate care, you may be able to pursue legal action.

We stand for the rights of victims whose conditions have worsened or who have suffered premature death due to the negligence of those entrusted with their lives.

Why does Medical Negligence Take Place in Yuma?
Many in the medical field are grossly overworked in severely understaffed facilities. The staff in charge of your care may not have the proper training or adequate experience. There is a multitude of reasons for these errors, and it is our duty to investigate all the facts of your case. Medical errors take place in a variety of situations. From receiving the wrong prescription to undergoing the wrong surgery, those who survive negligence in a medical setting often suffer from life-threatening conditions that are worse than the conditions that placed them under a physician’s care in the first place. Our determined Yuma medical negligence attorneys have successfully litigated cases involving:
- The failure to promptly diagnose a life-threatening condition
- The misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a condition
- Emergency room negligence
- Surgical errors
- Postoperative infection and septic shock
- Birth injuries
