Medical MalpracticePhysicians, surgeons, medical technicians, nurses, and other health care professionals owe a duty to their patients. In New Mexico, that duty is based on a recognized standard of care. Medical malpractice claims typically involve the negligent breach of the applicable standard of care and often involve negligent treatment, misdiagnosis, or the failure to diagnose existing injuries or conditions that result in serious injuries, illness, disease, or suffering that may have been avoided or prevented.
We can help you determine whether medical malpractice has occurred when you or someone you love is injured as a result of negligence or misconduct of individuals in the medical field.
