What Qualifies as Urgent Care Negligence?
Too often, patients receive substandard medical care in urgent care facilities which can lead to severe injuries or even death. An urgent care center and its staff may be held responsible if it can be proven that they acted negligently, leading to your injuries. Some instances of urgent care negligence include failure to:
- Properly diagnose a condition
- Direct you to the correct specialist
- Provide correct prescriptions or dosing
- Admit you to the hospital
- Use the appropriate diagnostic tools
- Treat the condition in a timely manner
- Equip you with proper care instructions
Urgent care facilities often prioritize speed to ensure patients are seen quickly. However, this is not an excuse to forgo proper medical protocol that can lead to irreversible damage to your health and quality of life.
Who Can Be Held Responsible?
Depending on the circumstances, a medical professional, the institution, or both can be held liable for your injuries. However, they also have their own legal teams and substantial resources to protect themselves in these situations. As such, it is essential that you have sound legal representation to pursue your case.
Over his more than 20-year career, Mr. Sandoval has built a reputation as a dedicated medical malpractice attorney who works tirelessly to serve clients' best interests.
What Can a Lawyer Do for You?
Firstly, an urgent care negligence attorney can help ensure your claim is made in accordance with state laws. In New Mexico, you are required to file a medical malpractice lawsuit within three years of the incident. However, this can be difficult due to confusing and extensive paperwork and the need to focus on your own recovery. A dedicated lawyer can handle all the legal aspects of your case and will have the resources to build an effective strategy. This will allow you and your family to focus on healing.
