A special relationship exists between physicians and their patients. Physicians owe their patients a duty to provide a certain standard of care, using at least the level of skill, care and diligence that is generally exercised by fellow practitioners in the medical professions. It is considered medical malpractice when a medical professional breaches that duty through negligence or carelessness and causes injury to a patient. Medical malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost income, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Medical malpractice attorney Charles E. Buri has successfully represented medical malpractice clients in Phoenix and throughout Arizona for more than 40 years, obtaining generous awards in cases involving general surgeries, orthopedic surgeries, anesthesia, emergency medicine, hospital nursing care, nursing home care, cosmetic surgeries, prescription drug mistakes, and psychiatric care.To prevail on a medical malpractice claim, expert medical testimony is generally required to establish that the medical care or diagnosis was negligent and that this negligence caused the patient’s injuries. We regularly consult with a number of licensed medical professionals and retain prominent medical experts who have a gift for clearly explaining medical mistakes to jurors.
