Medical Malpractice Your Injury, Our Fight

Las Cruces, NM Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Going to the hospital can be a stressful experience because you’re not sure what’s wrong with you, how much it will cost, and what kinds of treatments you’ll have to endure. Plenty of people of all ages get nervous about going to the doctor for so many reasons. Unfortunately, one of those reasons could be because the doctor could make a mistake and cause you more damage than what you originally had.

This would be considered medical malpractice because the doctor or other medical professional could make an error that leads to you suffering from more injuries than you did when you initially went to get evaluated. In this scenario, our Las Cruces, NM medical malpractice lawyer can help you hold that negligent healthcare worker responsible for the further harm that they’ve caused you.

Different Types of Medical Errors

When you believe that might have a med mal claim on your hands, you could be wondering what types of medical errors are considered to be medical malpractice. There are many different scenarios where doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are negligent, and they can be considered malpractice because their negligence injures their patient.

Here are some of the most common types of medical errors that could happen that you might be dealing with in your instance of med mal:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Missed Diagnosis
  • Wrong Site Surgery
  • Leaving Surgical Tools in the Body
  • Medication Errors
  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Infections
  • Birth Injuries

All of these situations come from a medical professional being negligent while they are evaluating, treating, or performing a procedure on their patient. Not only can these worsen a patient’s condition and make them even more ill or suffer from more injuries, but in severe cases, they can cause permanent damage and even death for the patient.

You might recognize any of the situations above as what happened to you, which would mean that you experienced medical malpractice. Even if you didn’t experience any of these errors, you still might have a med mal claim. A Las Cruces, NM medical malpractice lawyer can help you determine your legal options and prove the other party was negligent.
