Nothing is more devastating than losing someone you love, except perhaps when death could have been avoided had your loved one's doctor not acted negligently.

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Arizona
When it comes to medical care and treatment, nothing is certain. Each operation, procedure and treatment has its inherent risks, which patients should be notified of beforehand. It is up to a patient's doctors and medical team to provide that patient with the acceptable standard of medical care he or she needs. When a patient dies because his/her doctors or nurses failed to provide him/her with adequate care, the patient's family has the right to file a claim for wrongful death benefits.
It should be mentioned that just because a patient dies in a doctor's care does not mean the doctor is liable for wrongful death. Patients die every day for reasons that are out of their doctor's control. It is only those cases when medical negligence caused or contributed to the patient's death that his or her family will be entitled to wrongful death benefits.
