Albuquerque Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Contact a Dedicated Albuquerque Personal Injury Attorney
Doctors and other medical care providers sometimes make mistakes. When
those mistakes cost you or a loved one dearly, you may be eligible to
file a medical malpractice claim. Medical malpractice cases are intended
to hold medical care providers accountable for errors that would otherwise
have been avoidable if they had exercised the proper care and diligence.
If a medical professional's mistake has caused harm to your health
or body, you may be able to receive compensation for your suffering. Ask
our experienced Albuquerque medical malpractice
attorney to review the details of your
personal injury claim.
Common Forms of Medical Malpractice
Forms of medical malpractice range from honest mistakes to major, damaging
errors that can change the course of a patient’s life. They also
tend to produce additional expenses, damage a patient’s health and
longevity, and cause a great deal of emotional suffering. Medical malpractice
can take many forms, but the most common ones are:
Retention of foreign object(s): This occurs when tools and other objects are left inside a patient’s
body after surgery. Items commonly left behind include gauze, metal forceps,
and needles. These typically cause serious infections, new health problems,
worsening of the original medical issue, and exponentially greater medical costs.
Failure to provide informed consent: This occurs when physicians and other medical professionals do not communicate
clearly with patients regarding the details of their condition, related
treatments, or the effects of a medication, operation, or other procedure.
Without the proper information, a patient cannot provide informed consent
to a procedure. When the procedure, operation, or medication regimen is
implemented without the patient's knowing approval, it can be considered
Surgical never events: This form of medical error is the most shocking and the most avoidable.
Surgical never events involve devastating mistakes, such as performing
a hysterectomy on the wrong patient, amputating the wrong body part, or
giving a heart transplant to the wrong patient. These typically result
from significant oversight, disorganization, and miscommunication by entire
teams of medical staff.
Improper diagnoses and incorrect medications: This one is self-explanatory. One can imagine the unnecessary suffering
and costs incurred by a patient who is misdiagnosed and treated for cancer
based on an incorrect pregnancy test or a patient who is given blood-thinners
intended for someone else.
When you put your life, health, and wellbeing into the hands of a medical
