Medical errors due to doctor burnout

Many New Mexico residents have suffered misdiagnoses, botched surgery and even the death of loved ones due to medical errors. In several instances, the gross negligence of medical practitioners was identified as the reason for this. However, according to a CBS News report, doctor burnout is now one of the key factors putting patients at risk.

Brain injuries and personal relationships

From financial consequences to problems at work, headaches and memory issues, brain injuries often come with a long list of challenges that people will struggle with. Sadly, many patients have suffered a brain injury at the hands of a medical professional who was careless, and these injuries can be even more difficult to address because they may take months (or even years) to become apparent. In this post, we will look into some of the ways in which brain injuries can disrupt a victim's personal relationships, an especially upsetting facet of this injury for many people in New Mexico.

What is a survival action?

Most in Albuquerque likely associate wrongful death lawsuits with action taken by a deceased person's representatives against those whose negligent actions contributed to one's death. Yet what about cases where your loved one was injured, yet did not immediately die (or later died from causes that might have only been loosely related to the injuries caused by an earlier incident)? Are you then allowed to bring action for the damages and losses your family member or friend incurred? 

Surgical errors and the loss of a loved one

People unexpectedly lose loved ones for many reasons, from motor vehicle crashes to cancer. Sadly, so many of these deaths were totally preventable and only took place because of negligent behavior. In the medical world, wrongful death is especially concerning and so many patients have passed away because of careless physicians and avoidable errors. In this blog post, we will examine some of the challenges facing those who have lost a loved one due to surgical errors.
