Finding a vigilant and committed health care provider

Medical injuries and fatalities related to malpractice, surgical errors, misdiagnosis and other errors are all too common in today’s world. Securing your health and safety is facilitated in large part by the vigilance and commitment of your health care provider in New Mexico. At Curtis & Lucero Attorneys, we understand the complexities of medical malpractice.

Avoid surgical error with proper patient education

There is little else as unsettling as going in for surgery and knowing that your health and well-being is in the hands of someone else. Surgical errors are more common than many people realize and can result in serious bodily injury or even death. For New Mexico residents like yourself, you can proactively take matters into your own hands by receiving proper patient education. At Curtis & Lucero Attorneys, we understand the complications of cases dealing with surgical errors.

What is proper first aid for a head injury?

If you are in a situation in New Mexico where someone has suffered a head injury, it is important that you know what to do. Head injures can be severe if the brain has been injured as well. You may not immediately know if the injury has impacted the brain, so you should treat any head injury as a brain injury.

What is wrong-site surgery?

You go to a New Mexico hospital for surgery, and the surgeon does the wrong procedure on you. This is not supposed to happen and falls under the definition of a wrong-site surgery, according to Hospitals for the Pursuit of Excellence. This type of error not only involves surgeons performing the wrong surgery but also when surgery is done on the wrong body part or wrong side of the body and surgeries performed on the wrong patient.
