Wrongful death and medical malpractice lawsuits

When a medical error occurs and harms a patient in New Mexico, the doctor or other medical professional who is responsible for the damages can typically be held liable. This is usually done through a medical malpractice lawsuit. However, if the patient dies, family members may want to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Although both types of lawsuit may arise from the same medical mistake, they are not the same legal actions.
