Did you know that healthcare professionals have a legal obligation to provide a standard level of care? They should provide treatment or care based upon today’s accepted standards, based on the situation at hand and the tools at their disposal. Deviations from standard care, when they cause injury to a patient, may be considered medical malpractice. Injured patients can take legal action in civil court to recoup their losses and hold the negligent medical professional responsible.
Doctors, nurses, surgeons, hospitals, and other medical professionals and facilities carry special insurance to cover medical malpractice claims that may arise in the course of their practice. Recovering fair compensation from these insurance providers is no easy task, however, as they are more interested in protecting their bottom line and limiting the accountability of the individuals and facilities they cover. You need a skilled Albuquerque medical malpractice attorney to protect your interests.
