Families who place loved ones in nursing homes expect a reasonable standard of care for the residents. Sadly, some nursing homes fail to achieve that goal. As a result, nursing home neglect cases are on the rise in New Mexico as well as in other places across the United States.
Many New Mexico parents-to-be look forward to the birth of their child right from the moment they learn they are expecting. Most pregnancies proceed with few complications. Yet even a healthy pregnancy can end with a birth injury when medical errors occur during delivery.
For many children in Albuquerque a bicycle is a prized possession. Sadly, children are often the victims of bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles. Many of these accidents could have been avoided if the motorists had exercised more caution while driving.
One of the highest rates of hospitalization is during childbirth. New Mexico parents rely on their doctors for a safe delivery and the opportunity to bring their new baby home. But childbirth is often a risky procedure. An infant or the new mother may suffer serious injuries due to the medical malpractice of the doctor or the hospital's medical staff. When this happens the parents may wish to consult with medical malpractice attorneys in order to determine whether there is a legal remedy for their tragic situation.
