Liability in Arizona Medical Malpractice Cases
In Arizona, medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional has deviated from the standard of care to the extent that the deviation is considered negligent by another practicing medical professional in the same field. In fact, Arizona Law will not even recognize a plaintiff’s medical malpractice lawsuit unless it is accompanied by a sworn statement under oath by a practicing medical professional who testifies that the negligence was an improper deviation from the standard of care.
What this means is that if you want to sue a doctor for malpractice, it needs to be a serious enough case in which a second doctor will testify against the first doctor. That’s not an easy standard to meet, and there is a reason for it. Doctors and medical professionals in Arizona typically have a stressful job that is centered around caring for as many patients as possible. Mistakes happen, and it should not be easy to sue a physician for any small error. Even when the error leads to catastrophic injury or death, in Arizona you cannot properly file a lawsuit unless a similar physician signs an affidavit (under penalty of perjury) that the negligence was a deviation from the standard of care.
