When New Mexico patients seek emergency medical treatment, the last thing they expect is to suffer due to mistakes made by their caregivers. Unfortunately, medical malpractice can result in serious injuries that put families through tremendous strain and may even lead to deaths. When such incidents occur, survivors are often left confused and hurt, and obtaining the advice of counsel may be their best option for seeking answers. At our firm, our attorneys are dedicated to helping you pursue closure.
The circumstances under which such events occur are widely varied. For instance, patients who want to learn more about their ongoing symptoms may receive the wrong diagnoses and thus never obtain treatments that could have prevented their existing illnesses from getting worse. Improper application of natal procedures may lead to serious injuries that critically jeopardize a newborn infant’s chance of survival. Medical negligence isn’t limited to care-only facilities, and in some cases, nursing home patients and occupants suffer from lack of life-saving attention or even outright abuse.
The aftermath of a wrongful death can be trying in more ways than one. In addition to suffering profound emotional hurt, families may lose their breadwinners and have to deal with additional financial woes. As if adding insult to injury, you may even be billed for the mistaken treatments that led to your loved one’s death. Pursuing compensation could help lessen some of the financial burdens you face so that you can focus on coming to terms with your loss.
