What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is any act or omission that deviates from known medical standards and causes harm to the patient. Common examples of medical malpractice are as follows:
- Missed diagnosis
- Delayed diagnosis

To prove medical malpractice, a victim must show:
- There was a doctor-patient relationship
- The doctor owed the patient a duty of care
- The doctor breached that duty
- That breach caused the patient’s injuries
- The patient suffered damages as a result
Medical malpractice may occur at any point in a patient’s treatment and in any variety of medical facilities. The time limit, or statute of limitations, to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in New Mexico is three years from the date of the health care provider’s negligent action or inaction. There is an exception for young children.

Victims of medical malpractice are eligible for compensation for their financial, physical, and emotional losses. Medical errors are expensive, delay healing times, create the need for more treatments or surgeries, cause lifelong medical problems, and can even lead to death.

Economic damages might include:
- Medical bills
