Unfortunately, these professionals can make errors and neglect this duty of care, causing serious patient injuries.

3 Elements of an Arizona Medical Malpractice Claim

In Arizona, medical professionals must exercise the same standard of care that a reasonable provider with similar training and experience would provide. When they deviate from this standard and cause more harm, you may file a medical malpractice claim. Our skilled Tucson medical malpractice attorneys handle the following elements of your claim to demonstrate what the at-fault party should have done and how their negligence caused your injuries:

Preliminary Expert Opinion

When filing a medical malpractice claim in Tucson, you must also file a preliminary expert opinion that contains the following information:

  • The expert’s qualifications to share their thoughts on liability and the standard of care in your situation
  • The basis for each of your claims against the liable party
  • The actions the expert believes to violate the standard of care
  • How these actions contributed to your injuries and damages

We have access to valuable resources, like medical experts, who can provide their opinion on your case.  

Proving Fault

The preliminary expert opinion establishes that the licensed professional owed you a duty of care and breached this duty, but your claim must also prove this negligence was the cause-in-fact and proximate cause of your injuries. This means the liable party’s actions must have caused your injuries, which would not have occurred without this negligence, and that your injuries were a foreseeable result of these actions. 


Unlike many other states, Arizona does not have a cap on the amount of damages you can recover for your medical malpractice claim, so our talented Tucson medical malpractice lawyers fiercely advocate for your claim’s full value, which may include the following:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Prescribed medications
  • Assistive medical devices
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Reduced quality of life

We consider every detail when calculating your damages to ensure they cover your current and future needs.
