When a lawyer or physician fails to exercise the proper professional standard of care or ethics required, and clients or patients are detrimentally harmed by this negligence, an experienced attorney can assist in recovering damages.
At Aguilar & Aguilar we know the pain and loss that follow when a family member of any age becomes a victim of medical malpractice. We also understand the worry and confusion that parents endure when their child suffers a serious birth injury. That’s because our lawyers have years of experience representing – and getting results for – New Mexico medical malpractice and birth injury clients.
If you’re concerned that you or a family member have been injured by a doctor’s or hospital’s mistake, contact us to learn how we can help.
Attorneys have a duty to act in good judgment and competence when representing a client, informing them of any mistakes that they have made. When they fail to act in a client’s best interests, and a client suffers financially or otherwise, legal malpractice may have occurred. Examples include:
Missing statute of limitations
Breach of attorney/client privilege
Presenting false evidence
Misleading legal advice
If you believe your attorney has deviated from the standard of care, and if you have suffered as a result, you may have a legal malpractice claim.
Aguilar & Aguilar handles personal injury claims involving catastrophic injuries and death as a result of the negligence of medical professionals. When a health care provider fails to exercise the degree of care and skill expected of him or her under normal circumstances and injuries or death occur because of surgical errors, hospital errors, medication errors, nursing home negligence, and other forms of medical malpractice, we can evaluate the case.
We seek justice for our clients in the form of compensation for their losses. A malpractice lawsuit can also help identify what may be a common instance or error, and can lead to improved performance by medical professionals. Meritorious medical malpractice cases can and do help the health care industry by causing it to focus on correctable mistakes.
