Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
Over the decades, we have handled a wide range of medical malpractice lawsuits. We have represented clients with just about every conceivable medical malpractice case.
We have the knowledge and experience to evaluate your medical malpractice case, and if it’s a case we are able to take on, we know how to prove your case and show the extent of your physical, psychological, and financial injuries.
Some of the most common forms of medical negligence we have seen include:
- Misdiagnosis: You may have a claim based on a misdiagnosis if a physician gave you the wrong diagnosis when they had all of the information necessary to make a correct diagnosis. The misdiagnosis must have led to a deterioration in your condition or an additional injury that you would not have suffered if the physician had gotten it right.
- Delayed Diagnosis: You may also have a claim if your physician correctly diagnosed your condition but did so too late, even though they had everything they needed to diagnose sooner. If the unnecessary delay in diagnosis deteriorated your health or caused you a separate injury, you may have a claim.
- Failure to Diagnose: If you had to go to another physician after weeks or months of trying to receive an accurate diagnosis, talk with a lawyer about your previous physician’s failure to diagnose you. That physician may have failed to take the steps necessary to figure out what was wrong.
- Surgical Errors: Many things can go wrong in an operating room, and not all bad surgery outcomes are medical malpractice. However, many New Mexico surgical patients are unnecessarily injured because their doctor or hospital did not follow basic surgical safeguards. These types of surgical errors include: undergoing a procedure on the wrong body part; undergoing the incorrect procedure; having a medical instrument left inside you; and having a surgeon fail to correct a mistake made during the procedure. Patients can also be harmed because of inadequate precautions before surgery or failures to follow-up afterward.
- Anesthesia Errors: Anesthesia is an essential part of surgery. If you were not properly anesthetized for a procedure and could feel pain or were awake when you should be asleep, call a medical malpractice attorney immediately. Other anesthesia errors include failure to monitor your oxygen levels, oxygen deprivation, prolonged sedation, and failure to recognize and act when there are complications.
- Medication Errors: You may suffer from an injury if a physician prescribes you an inappropriate drug or if you are improperly administered a drug while at a doctor’s office or hospital.
- Pharmaceutical Errors: Patients should only take prescription medications as prescribed and directed by their physicians. Despite receiving an appropriate prescription, you may have been given the incorrect drug or the wrong dose of the right drug by a pharmacy. These cases involve a detailed investigation of what was prescribed, what the pharmacy gave, and how the pharmacy’s error harmed the patient.
- Birth Injuries: You, your child, or the mother of your child may have experienced a preventable injury during pregnancy, a vaginal birth, or a cesarean section. Birth injuries are often devastating and tragic to a family, and birth injury cases are complex and difficult. You should speak directly with a qualified medical malpractice lawyer if you or a family member has a child who has suffered an unnecessary birth injury.
