Compensation Available for a Surgical Errors Claim

Surgical error victims in Albuquerque may be able to recover a range of types of compensation if their claim is successful. Our attorneys work to recover both economic and non-economic damages for every surgical error patient that we assist.

There is no set amount of compensation paid to surgical error victims in Albuquerque. Rather, the total compensation awarded will vary depending on specific factors related to each case.

How Long do You Have to File a Lawsuit?

Individuals harmed due to the negligence of a medical provider in New Mexico have a limited amount of time to file their lawsuits in civil court. The New Mexico medical malpractice statute of limitations says that a claim must be filed within three years from the day the malpractice occurred. It is important to point out that New Mexico states that these claims must be filed from the date the injury occurred, not from the date it was discovered.

The medical malpractice statute of limitations is paused for those under the age of 18 who sustained an injury caused by medical malpractice. In these circumstances, the statute of limitations will begin when the child turns 18 years of age and run for three years.
