MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

We are a premier medical malpractice litigation firm in Arizona. Our attorneys have extensive experience in litigating claims involving health care providers, doctors, dentists, chiropractors, nurses, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, physical therapists, mental health providers, ophthalmologists, eye care centers and other allied health care professionals.  Our ability to understand and convey complex medical principles to a jury is second to none.  

In-house nurse consultants with exceptional medical knowledge provide important medical analysis and guidance to our attorneys. Our firm also has established a network of independent medical experts in a wide variety of medical specialties.

Because most physicians have the right to withhold consent to settlement granted them by their liability insurance policies, medical malpractice cases have been especially likely to proceed to trial. Our medical malpractice attorneys have tried numerous cases throughout the State of Arizona, and have a well-established record of successful verdicts.

DENTAL MALPRACTICE 

Dentists are coming under increased scrutiny as dental procedures become more complex and invasive.  Dental implants, root canals, crowns, cosmetic dental procedures and even routine cavity filling can become the basis for a dental malpractice claim.  Our dental malpractice attorneys are knowledgeable about the intricacies of the practices of dentists, oral surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, orthodontists and other dental professionals which translates into better representation and outcomes for our clients.  Our attorneys have significant experience defending claims of malpractice through trial and providing representation before the dental board.    

LONG TERM CARE/NURSING HOME
 
An accusation of elder abuse can tarnish a nursing home's reputation and even threaten to close it down. We work with investigators and expert witnesses to get to the facts. The healthcare industry is currently under siege from an alarming increase in the number of "Elder Abuse" claims that are being pursued against long-term care facilities, acute care facilities and individual physicians. This crisis is particularly severe for skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities for the elderly and other facilities dedicated to providing care and treatment to elder and dependent care patients. Our attorneys are both knowledgeable and appreciative of the unique issues faced by one of the most regulated and scrutinized industries in the United States and have successfully represented the interest of many facilities in this area.
