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.

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.
