Parents allege surgical errors caused toddler's death, file suit

A routine surgery recently went bad for a small child in state outside New Mexico. A couple took their toddler son for a basic tonsillectomy. He had a condition that is often called "hot potato mouth," which results in difficulty sleeping and problems with speech. Unfortunately, what should have been a safe, simple and routine procedure purportedly turned into numerous surgical errors that has now led to the couple filing a medical malpractice claim.

2 reasons why medical malpractice suits are filed

Health care professionals have certain legal duties to ensure that they are providing the highest levels of care to all of their patients. Unfortunately, this does not always happen and can result in harm to the patients. Medical malpractice cases are filed by individuals who have been injured by medical providers, including doctors, nurses, hospitals, x-ray technicians or other health care professionals. Here is a look at some common reasons medical malpractice suits are filed in New Mexico and throughout the country.

Baby's brain injuries lead to mother filing malpractice suit

When New Mexico individuals endure brain injuries, this can lead to a very long road to recovery. In most cases, recovery isn't even an option. Instead, one must sometimes live with hardship for their rest of his or her life. Sadly, a mother from another state is all too familiar with this situation, as this may be the life that her daughter has ahead of her. Because of a medical facility's negligence, her daughter suffered unnecessarily, and she is now filing a medical malpractice lawsuit citing negligence as the cause of her baby's brain injuries.

Dentist accused of negligence by allegedly ruining teen's smile

When most New Mexico residents think about medical malpractice, they think about a hospital, a surgeon, a doctor or even a nurse making a medical-related mistake. A dentist does not often come to mind; however, dentists are just as responsible for medical negligence events as surgeons or physicians. A 19-year-old teen is suing her orthodontic dentist saying that it is his fault that she could potentially lose some of her teeth.
