When Medical Care Leads To Harm Instead Of Healing
You have every right to expect doctors and other health care providers to follow accepted standards of care while diagnosing or treating you. If you experienced an inexplicable negative outcome of surgery or harm through a medication error, you should ask a medical malpractice lawyer to help you explore your legal options. Egolf + Ferlic + Martinez + Harwood, LLC, provides information, case evaluations and advocacy for people throughout New Mexico in cases of medical mistakes.
Many personal injury law firms shy away from medical malpractice in general because negligence can be hard to prove. Not every undesirable outcome of medical treatment is proof that a provider committed malpractice. However, our experience has given us the insights that can help determine whether you were wronged through malpractice.
