Phoenix Medical Malpractice Lawyers
When it comes to the human body, a lot of things can go wrong. Even with the best medical care available, there are times when the outcome of a procedure will not be good. There are cases in which an accurate diagnosis is difficult. There are childbirth emergencies that could not have been foreseen.
In these cases, a medical malpractice claim is not appropriate.
But there are other cases in which patients did NOT receive the best medical care available. In fact, their care fell below the standard of care a medical professional should be expected to provide. Standard tests weren't ordered. The wrong dose of medication was given. No one communicated results to a patient.
So how do you know if you have a medical malpractice case?
You talk with a lawyer who has handled medical malpractice cases. Unless you are a doctor yourself, it will be quite difficult to determine if medical negligence occurred in your case.
We care ... and we can help. Let us tell your story.

The Three Elements of a Medical Malpractice Claim
At the Arizona law firm of Knapp & Roberts, our Phoenix medical malpractice attorneys have handled a wide range of medical negligence cases. We work closely with medical experts in a variety of specialty fields.
When you hire us to represent you, we must prove three elements:
- Was your doctor or medical provider negligent? Did he or she fail to live up to the commonly accepted standard of care for his or her field of medicine?

- Did that injury result in significant financial damages (now or in the future)?
We understand how hospitals, clinics and nursing homes operate. We know how to prepare an effective case. That's why we've been so successful getting results link to verdicts and settlements for injured people.
