Medical malpractice in Arizona

Have you or someone you loved ever felt concerned about the quality of health care you have received by an Arizona provider or facility? If so, you know how scary this experience can be. It is important for you to be proactive about your health and the quality of care you receive to maintain or achieve that health. From proper and timely diagnoses to appropriate treatment when needed and beyond, you deserve these things. When this does not happen, you may need to consider legal action.

The Arizona State Legislature Revised Statutes provides an overview of what your rights are in these situations. First, it is important that you know that the state of Arizona adheres to a two-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases. This means that you are only given a two-year window from the date that an injury or death occurs in order to initiate a lawsuit seeking compensation.

Such actions may be taken against individual providers like surgeons, physicians or nurses. Malpractice cases may also be initiated against facilities even including blood banks. There are some limitations governing claims involving allegations of exploitation, abuse or neglect of elders or other vulnerable adults. Initial complaints in malpractice cases are not allowed to identify a specified amount of damages being sought by plaintiffs.
