Negligence may have led to infant's life-long brain injuries

Being able to bring a beautiful baby into this world is supposed to be one of the most joyous times of one's life. However, when complications arise during the pregnancy or delivery, it can result in devastating -- and sometimes irreparable -- injuries to the baby. If the harm was avoidable, it is crucial that the parents become familiar with their legal rights as well as the rights that they have concerning their baby in regards to potential medical negligence. This is something that one couple from a state outside of New Mexico has done.

What to do when you suspect medical malpractice

Did you or a loved one recently suffer a serious injury while under the care of a New Mexico hospital? If so, you may suspect that someone -- a doctor, nurse or other medical professional -- made an error that led to your injury or the death of your loved one. When you suspect that medical malpractice occurred, you would most likely benefit from the counsel of someone who understands the complexities of filing and supporting such a claim.

Medical malpractice incident outside New Mexico recently settled

The family of a 38-year-old man was recently awarded $1.7 million in damages for the wrongful death of their loved one. The medical malpractice claim was recently settled in a court outside of New Mexico. The man's family is slated to receive $1.4 million, with annuities of $300,000 paid to his three children over a four-year time span.

Medical negligence lawsuit filed after alleged misdiagnosis

In New Mexico, as in other states, licensed physicians, other health care workers and medical facilities are held to certain standards of practice by the medical profession. Unfortunately, some medical practitioners fail to uphold those standards, leaving patients facing the consequences of medical negligence. Medical treatment can only be successful upon proper diagnosis, and if a potential problem is not identified promptly, the patient's condition can deteriorate rapidly.
