What is Medical Malpractice?
Hundreds of people in New Mexico undergo medical procedures and treatments every day. The majority of the time, everything goes smoothly. However, there are unfortunate cases where things go wrong because of improper diagnosis, medical incompetence, or negligence. These instances are often referred to as medical malpractice. It’s something that can cost you your health or even your life.
Unfortunately for sufferers of medical malpractice, the chances normally favor hospitals, doctors, and healthcare professionals; their insurance companies often make things extremely difficult and financially challenging for patients. Victims of medical malpractice in New Mexico need an attorney with very specific skills and experience. If you or a loved one are a victim of significant harm or wrongful death stemming from medical malpractice, contact a New Mexico medical malpractice lawyer from the Lerner and Rowe Albuquerque office.
