The healthcare industry is going through a lot of changes, both in how it operates and how it is structured. Hospital administrators in New Mexico are faced with the challenge of lowering costs and achieving revenue benchmarks, all while helping to heal the sick and injured who make their way through the hospital's doors. This idea of doing more with less can cause doctors and hospital administrators to make poor (and sometimes fatal) mistakes just so they can save a dollar or two to help the hospital meet its bottom line.
Under such conditions, even if doctors and nurses try their hardest to give the best care they can, mistakes can happen due to under-staffing or substandard and/or poorly maintained equipment. When an injury-causing accident like this occurs, hospitals can be held financially accountable through a medical malpractice claim. In some cases, such a claim could be the only way for victims to pay for the care needed to recover from their medical malpractice injuries.
The Harvey & Foote Law Firm is dedicated to giving its clients the most aggressive representation available in medical negligence claims. We bring cases against medical care providers and institutions like nursing homes, hospitals, outpatient facilities and health clinics. The most common types of cases we take on include claims involving surgical errors, medication mistakes, anesthesia errors, post-operative errors, infections and other types of issues.
The Harvey & Foote Law Firm also offers free consultation services, where we will review the facts of your case and give our recommendation on the best options ahead of you. New Mexico residents who have been injured due to a negligent or careless doctor's mistakes may want to investigate the strength of pursuing their claims. Indeed, if the claim is ultimately navigated to success, then the injured party may be able to obtain vital financial restitution for injuries, time spent out of work, pain and suffering and other damages.
