Tucson medical malpractice attorney
David E. Hill, P.L.C.
Have you or an immediate family member ever been concerned that a licensed health care provider (Hospital, Doctor, Dentist, Nurse or Therapist) you treated with made the wrong diagnosis or made it too late, prescribed the wrong medication, committed a significant error during surgery, simply didn’t follow directions, or provided the wrong treatment? Did that conduct cause a death, a terminal illness, a reduced life expectancy, or other serious injury?
When health care providers deliver care, they are expected to comply with the applicable “standard of care.” The “standard of care” is what a reasonably prudent health care provider would do under similar circumstances. If a health care provider did not comply with the applicable standard of care, and an injury resulted, that individual and the company he or she may have been working for at the time, was probably negligent or otherwise responsible. If so, a claim for “medical malpractice” may exist.
Conservative estimates state that over 98,000 people die of preventable medical errors in this country every year. That makes such mistakes the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.
For over 20 of my years in practice I represented doctors, nurses, therapists, hospitals and employers alleged to have provided sub-standard medical care. However, for the past 6 years I have represented, exclusively, patients and family members who have been victims of medical malpractice. My considerable experience on both sides of this particular fence provide me a unique perspective which lends itself, in my opinion, to the identification of meritorious claims, and the economical and successful handling of them.
If you believe you or a close family member has suffered a serious injury at the hands of the health profession, please contact me to discuss a possible claim in confidence. The health care industry should and can be held accountable. And I can assure you that if you place your case in my hands, you will find in me a tireless, effective advocate.
In Arizona the legislature has imposed certain limitations on the presentation of a claim for personal injury or wrongful death (an “injury”). Generally, a person has only 2 years from the date of the “injury” to file a lawsuit. Further, if the responsible party is a public entity, a person may have to prepare and file what is known as a “Notice of Claim” no later than 180 days (6 months) after an “injury” so as to preserve the right to file a lawsuit after that, if necessary. If you have sustained an injury, do to not procrastinate with respect to your decision to consult with a lawyer regarding a possible claim. Failing to consult a Tucson medical malpractice attorney and missing one of the deadlines referred to above, you may lose the opportunity to be compensated for your loss.
