Medical Negligence Attorneys in New Mexico
When doctors, nurses and other medical professionals fail to provide an acceptable standard of care, patients suffer, and in some cases, are seriously or fatally hurt by these preventable errors. Medical negligence may include errors in diagnosis, treatment or management of an illness or injury. If such negligence results in an injury to a patient, the patient may be able to pursue a claim against the doctor or against the hospital or clinic where the mistreatment took place.
