When hiring a Medical Malpractice Lawyer In Albuquerque, here is what you should know.
New Mexicans expect that doctors, nurses and medical professionals will do their job to the best of their ability and professional standards. Unfortunately medical professionals can and do make mistakes. This can have a devastating impact on patients who have trusted medical professionals with their life and health.
Improper or substandard treatment by a medical practitioner because of negligence is called medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can occur in many different ways including a failure to properly diagnose a medical problem, not providing the right treatment, providing treatment that falls below the professional standard of care, or creating an unreasonable delay in the treatment.
Medical malpractice cases are often very complex and very time consuming to litigate. It is imperative that you retain an attorney who will relentlessly pursue justice on your behalf.
There are several obstacles for you to overcome to successfully pursue a medical malpractice case in New Mexico. The first thing that you should know is that you should start the case before the statute of limitations runs out. This is the time period under which the case should be filed, in New Mexico there is generally a three (3) year statue of limitations for medical malpractice claims.
The second obstacle for you is to prove that any injury suffered was actually a result of malpractice. A bad outcome from medical treatment may occur even when a doctor or nurse acts according to the standard of professional care and does not make any mistakes. At the Law Office of Todd J.
