Category: Medical Malpractice

In late 2015 the Nevada Supreme Court struck down a law that removed caps from non-economic damages in medical malpractice suits. The ruling was a huge blow to every wrongful death lawyer in Las Vegas who used non-economic and punitive damages as tools to secure the compensation their clients deserved.

Every day, truck drivers come and go from Las Vegas along two of the deadliest stretches of road in the country. The first, and by far the most dangerous by total number of traffic fatalities, is Interstate 15. Millions of driving hours are spent in the cabs of long-haul freight carriers each year along this road, giving the drivers of these rigs a unique perspective on what makes this highway so dangerous.
Much of the buzz in the auto industry now centers around the arrival of the driver-less car. As with any new technology, there are strong opinions about its potential impact. There are naysayers who think that no red blooded American would ever give up the enjoyment and thrill of driving. Then there are those who claim that driver-less vehicles could mean the end of accidents and traffic fatalities. The reality of the change will probably be somewhere in the middle.
When Nevada patients are admitted to the hospital, they usually have no reason to suspect that they will actually become more ill during treatment. However, a medical malpractice attorney in Nevada may see a large number of patients fall victim to serious, potentially deadly infections they pick up while in the hospital during his or her career. One of the most common hospital-acquired infections in U.S. hospitals is pneumonia.
Health care providers are required to report all known errors. In Nevada, health care mistakes are recorded in the Sentinel Events Registry, which is maintained through the Bureau of Health Planning and Statistics. In spite of the mandatory reporting policies, medical errors are estimated to contribute to hundreds of thousands of deaths each year.
