Taking Action After Medical Malpractice Occurs
Doctors, nurses and other hospital employees deliver the best care possible, but when injuries occur due to the negligence of a hospital worker, the hospital can be held accountable.
Harvey & Foote Law Firm provides aggressive and knowledgeable representation in medical negligence cases. Our attorneys have the experience and resources to represent victims and their families against individual medical care providers, as well as institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes, health clinics and outpatient surgical facilities across New Mexico.
Changes In Operations Can Lead To Poor Decisions
Like many other industries, the health care sector is experiencing drastic changes in how it is structured and operates. Hospital administrators face the same challenges as leaders at many other big businesses — controlling costs and achieving projected revenues.
The “do more with less” mentality that permeates U.S. companies of all sizes is being deployed at hospitals nationwide. Unfortunately, this can result in poor decisions based on a hospital’s bottom line rather than the quality of care provided to its patients.
Representing Victims In A Wide Array Of Negligence Cases
A hospital’s personnel may not admit to making a mistake that results in further injuring you or a loved one, or even causing someone’s death. Our lawyers work with doctors and other medical specialists who can help expose negligence and violations of state-mandated standard treatment protocols.
We represent victims and the families of victims throughout the state in a wide variety of hospital negligence cases, including:
- Surgical errors
- Pharmacy and medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Radiology errors
- Post-operative errors
- Lost medical records
- Failure to diagnose or treat
If you or a loved one has suffered injury as a result of the carelessness of a doctor, nurse or other health care practitioner, our attorneys can help determine if you have a malpractice lawsuit.
