McGinn Montoya Love & Curry and our Santa Fe medical malpractice team have been helping wrongfully injured patients for decades. We have seen all sorts of problems and mistakes that constitute medical malpractice and “never events.”
A few common forms of medical malpractice are:
- Causing a birth injury during labor and delivery
- Completing triage in the wrong order
- Failing to diagnose a patient in a timely manner
- Giving a patient unsafe medication
- Misdiagnosing a serious medical condition
- Mixing up a patient’s record with another patient’s
- Not using diagnostic tests to reach an accurate diagnosis
- Operating on the wrong body part
- Reading diagnostic test results incorrectly
No matter how rare the circumstances of your medical malpractice case might be, you can trust that our firm will be ready to help. We never back down from a challenge, especially when we know that our clients are relying on us. For that reason and more, we prepare every single case for litigation. Indeed, many medical malpractice cases will go to trial, even if a settlement is later offered.
Most people have been to the doctor and left unhappy with the care that they received. Does receiving a bad medical outcome to what you thought would be a routine treatment constitute medical malpractice? Usually, no, a bad medical outcome isn’t enough to justify a medical malpractice claim.
No treatment prescribed by a medical professional is guaranteed to go exactly as planned and help the patient, so there is always a risk of treatment failure or unexpected outcomes. Therefore, a bad outcome isn’t medical malpractice in most cases. Again, for medical malpractice to occur, the medical provider must have done something that another medical provider would not have done in the same situation. If the bad outcome happened but your treatment was acceptable, then you might not have a case.
However, don’t assume that you don’t have a claim. You should always take a moment to talk to our Santa Fe medical malpractice attorneys. It might be possible that a bad outcome is just the start of things that went wrong but shouldn’t have.
