Doctor Malpractice Attorneys in New Mexico

Experienced Representation Provided by Civil Trial Law Specialists

three doctors frowning at a medical chartWe 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.

Medical providers and their insurance companies fiercely contest malpractice claims. That’s why it’s very important to obtain skilled legal counsel to go up against these companies and fight for your rights in court. Our Albuquerque doctor malpractice attorneys have successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients, and we are ready to do the same for you. We want to hear your side of the story and fight for the compensation you deserve.

When Can I Sue a Doctor for Malpractice?

In order to have a solid malpractice claim, you need to be able to prove the following:

  • 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.)

Our malpractice lawyers are ready and willing to help you put together your case and prove the above information in court.

What Should I Do When My Doctor is Negligent?

Doctor negligence takes many forms, from failing to get informed consent before starting treatment to misdiagnosing and improper treating a patient. Any breach of these duties can constitute malpractice, and determining the underlying cause of your injury is the first step in securing compensation.
