Doctor Malpractice Attorneys in New Mexico
Experienced Representation Provided by Civil Trial Law Specialists
We trust and rely on our doctors to make the right call when treating our injuries and ailments. Unfortunately, this trust is sometimes unknowingly placed in the hands of inexperienced and/or negligent medical professionals. When physicians make errors, the results can be life-threatening, especially when they take the form of a prescription error, delayed diagnosis, or incorrect treatment. A doctor’s negligence can have deadly consequences, and if you were injured by a doctor’s mistake, you have legal recourse to seek justice.

How Can I Sue a Doctor for Malpractice?

- That you had a doctor-patient relationship with your doctor; (i.e. the doctor was hired, and agreed to be hired, by you)
- Your doctor was negligent when diagnosing or treating your condition, meaning that they made mistakes that any other competent doctor would not have made
- It was the doctor's negligence that caused your injury, not the preexisting condition
- Your injury resulted in specific financial or emotional damages; (i.e. pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, etc.)
