New Mexico Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Helping Those Harmed by Malpractice in Albuquerque, NM & Nationwide

From 2009 to 2013, there were more than 1,000 medical malpractice payments recorded in New Mexico, per the National Practitioner Data Bank. This statistic serves to prove the serious problem in our healthcare industry: medical professionals who fail to uphold their duty to their patients. Boiled down to its simplest terms, medical malpractice occurs when a patient suffers from a medical professional who does not competently perform his or her duties. It is a form of professional negligence and can be the result of direct action or failure to act.

Typically, the following elements will need to be fulfilled to file a claim:

  • There was a patient-doctor relationship established;
  • The doctor behaved negligently in some manner;
  • That negligence caused the patient's injury; and
  • The patient's injury resulted in specific damages.
