Lawyers For Injuries Caused By Misdiagnosis
Successful medical treatment all begins with the proper diagnosis. If your doctor doesn’t spot a potential problem that should require further tests; if your child’s pediatrician doesn’t recognize symptoms of a potentially serious condition; if the emergency room doctor doesn’t recognize the signs of a heart attack or stroke, consequences can be serious and even fatal.
You Can Fight Back If Your Family Suffered Injury Or Death Because Of Misdiagnosis
We are the medical malpractice litigation attorneys of Curtis & Co. in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our lawyers bring together nearly 40 years of experience aggressively representing individuals and families who have suffered serious injury or the loss of a loved one because of medical negligence.
If You Think Something Went Wrong, You May Be Right
The medical profession holds licensed physicians, nurses and health care facilities to the standards of practice. However, sometimes doctors don’t always give patients credit for understanding their own bodies or following their own intuition. In many misdiagnosis negligence cases, the injured patient will say that he or she knew something wasn’t right about the doctor’s decisions or prescribed treatment.
If you feel as if something wasn’t right about the expected level of care you or your loved one received, call our offices in Albuquerque to discuss the circumstances of your case. Before we accept a medical malpractice case, we gather medical records and reports and thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your claim. If the diagnosis or prescribed medical treatment was wrong and caused harm or death, we will help you find justice to hold the wrongdoers accountable. If we feel the doctor did, indeed, meet the expected level of professional care, we will give you an honest assessment.
Who Pays And How Much?
We handle only valid medical malpractice cases. We will not represent clients in frivolous lawsuits. Life is valuable and must be honored. Severe injury is always devastating. The provider, hospital or group must be responsible for the medical costs, both past and future, the pain and suffering they cause, the loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages, earning capacity and the loss of the value of life when a person dies wrongfully. We are very aggressive in holding the wrongdoers liable for their harm.
