The health care industry is supposed to protect and heal the patients that it cares for. Sadly, this is not always the case. In the state of New Mexico alone, hundreds of deaths and countless injuries occur annually at the hands of negligent physicians and hospitals. There are many different ways that a patient can experience medical malpractice:
Failure to diagnose
Giving medical care while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Wrong prescription dosage
At Ragsdale Law Firm, we see many cases of medical negligence every month, from minor injuries to wrongful deaths. The federal government, as well as the state of Florida, are aware of the crisis of medical care in this country. They have created laws to protect patients and their families from medical malpractice. These laws entitle you to receive compensation if you have been a victim of negligence. Unfortunately, medical malpractice lawsuits are some of the most difficult, costly, and time-consuming. The medical and insurance industries have teams of skilled lawyers ready to defeat your case.
