To Do Justice To Your Serious
Injury Case

When your doctor makes a mistake: seeking justice

You go to the doctor in the hopes of having your pain or illness dealt with. But what happens if the doctor fails in that, and actually ends up making things worse? Whether your doctor misdiagnoses your condition, mis-prescribes your medication or makes a mistake that injures you, you deserve compensation for the consequences you suffer.

Your economic future could be in trouble—whether it’s because you are unable to work or you are facing huge medical bills for further treatment. A medical malpractice lawsuit could help you handle these problems.

Economic damages

Long hospital stays and an inability to work can quickly lead to a financial crisis. How will you afford your care and still take care of your family?

If you win a medical malpractice claim, you can receive compensation for all economic damages. These include medical bills, long-term care costs and lost wages.

Non-economic damages

Under New Mexico law, you can also receive damages for any losses that do not have a direct dollar value. This may include pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement or loss of your previous lifestyle. If you are unable to enjoy your life the way you did before your injury, you may be able to seek damages.

Punitive damages

Under rare circumstances, you may also be able to seek punitive damages from your healthcare provider. These are additional, non-economic damages awarded as punishment to the medical professional who caused you harm. Punitive damages only apply if you can demonstrate that the healthcare provider acted maliciously or fraudulently.

Suffering unnecessarily due to a doctor’s negligence is never something you should have to tolerate. Consulting with an experienced medical malpractice attorney about your case can be a valuable first step to seeking justice.
