Medical malpractice can occur in many forms, as long as the four previously mentioned elements exist. At McGinn Montoya Love & Curry in Las Cruces, we have worked on many different types of medical malpractice cases and studied even more. You can be confident that we know the intricacies of your case, no matter what happened to you or why.
Some of the more common forms of medical malpractice include:
- Misdiagnosing a serious medical condition
- Failing to diagnose a patient in a timely manner
- Not using diagnostic tests to reach an accurate diagnosis
- Reading diagnostic test results incorrectly
- Mixing up a patient’s record with another patient’s

If you went to the doctor, agreed to treatment, and then found that the outcome of that treatment wasn’t what you expected, have you been the victim of medical malpractice? Typically, the answer is no. A “bad outcome” to medical treatment is not enough to constitute medical malpractice on its own. Even the best medical professionals in the world can’t predict with 100% accuracy how even routine treatments will progress. Unexpected situations can and do occur that complicate treatments.
A bad outcome could be the result of medical malpractice if it happened because the medical provider did something wrong or unsafe. Also, if you were never given a chance to give informed consent but could have been, and you get a bad treatment outcome, then it might be a sign of medical negligence.
The compensation owed to you after suffering from medical malpractice will depend on the details of your specific case. Part of our job as your chosen Las Cruces medical malpractice lawyers will be to accurately determine how much compensation you are owed. We work alongside medical experts to get a full picture of your injuries or illness, and how it will affect your livelihood. With an intentional focus on catastrophic, life-changing injuries, our team is ready to get into the details of your case.
