What is the Difference Between Medical Malpractice and Medical Negligence?

Medical malpractice (or med mal as it is sometimes known) is a breach of duty by a physician or medical facility.  Medical negligence does not involve intent.  In the case of negligence, the provider has made a mistake and caused unintentional, but REAL harm to the patient with whom they were entrusted.

Here are things that must be shown to prove medical malpractice –

1.  There was a previous relationship between the doctor and the patient.
2.  The doctor’s negligence directly resulted in the injury.
3.  Specific damage was done.
4.  Improper treatment was administered.
5.  No previous warning was given to the patient.

Proving and winning a medical malpractice case is one of the most challenge things that a personal injury attorney firm can do.  The Ken Wagner Law Firm knows what it takes to prove a case in Albuquerque or anywhere in the Great Southwest.  Enter into the process with confidence.  Start by calling The Ken Wagner Law Firm at (505) 242-6300.

No One Understands Burn Accidents More than We Do.

There are more than a million burn injuries a year occurring in America.  One of them may have recently happened to you or loved one.  One of the great tragedies is that about half of all burn injuries happen to children under the age of four.  Those statistics are provided by the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.

There are 1st degree burns that affect just the outer layer of your skin.  Then there are 2nd degree burns.  With these your skin will turn red and pain will be accompanied by blisters that contain a clear fluid.  Then there are the dreaded 3rd and even 4th degree burns.  These will often cause extensive scarring and may require multiple surgeries.

When you believe that you have a case because of a severe burn that you have received you turn to the man who helped win the famous McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case.  He is Ken Wagner of The Ken Wagner Law Firm.  For decades he has been known throughout the Great Southwest as Albuquerque’s premier burn injury attorney.  Call the office today at (505) 242-6300.
