A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. There wasn't a question included, but if you are wondering if the incident rose to the level of providing you with grounds for a med mal case, it doesn't sound like it. There is generally a need for showing a significant departure from a duty of medical care, and that tangible damages resulted. That's only an individual opinion. You could reach out to Arizona attorneys to ask them how they see things. Good luck
