Medical Mistakes

When Your Doctor Makes a Mistake, Turn to Our Albuquerque Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Protecting New Mexico against healthcare negligence

Each year, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, thousands of Americans die or suffer catastrophic injuries because of medical mistakes. Medical malpractice and medical error laws are designed to protect patients and their families against these mistakes. However, the complexity of the cases means that the cost, time and effort involved often require an attorney. The caring attorneys at the Law Offices of Bruce S. McDonald can assist you and your loved ones when a medical provider misses a diagnosis, makes an error or injures (or even kills) a patient in the hospital.

Known experience for complex healthcare mistake cases

As we know, errors that occur in the operating room or the emergency room can have devastating and sometimes fatal results. At the Law Offices of Bruce S. McDonald, our personal injury lawyers strive to obtain maximum compensation for serious injuries and loss that occurs because of a medical error. Our medical malpractice attorneys represent clients who have been injured in a myriad of ways as a result of medical mistakes and negligence.

Bear in mind that medical malpractice and errors can be the result of one or several doctors — surgeons, anesthesiologists, technicians, nurses or other professionals involved in patient care. Often, medical mistakes include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Over-medication
  • Under-medication
  • Punctured organs and bowels
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Instruments left inside patients
  • Failure to treat or recognize conditions
  • Delay in treatment
  • Improper testing
  • Negligent transmission of patient health information

Many of the errors can be avoided, and many lives can be saved. Our Albuquerque wrongful death lawyers seek to hold medical professionals who are negligent and make mistakes liable for the catastrophic injuries and sometimes fatal errors that result from their actions. If you think you have a claim against a medical professional, however, you must act as soon as possible.
