Most of us consult with a doctor after an injury or illness disrupts our daily lives. If you are like the majority of the American population, a trip to the doctor’s office is met with anything but enthusiasm and is often considered a chore. However, most of us visit a doctor with the hope that our condition will get better, not worse. The misguided advice of a doctor could have serious repercussions on your health and well-being and should be addressed as soon as the issue is made apparent. The De Castroverde Accident & Injury Lawyers has medical malpractice lawyers in Las Vegas that are willing to advocate for your rights.
Medical malpractice means that a healthcare provider has been negligent in their care of a patient, and their actions did not rise to the standard reasonable level of care that a similar healthcare professional would have displayed. Medical malpractice claims may be brought against doctors, hospitals, and medical staff after an injury occurs as a result of their medical care. The injuries are often caused by the following:
Negligent medical care can have a devastating impact on your future, and can include the following injuries:
These conditions can cause a complete change in an injured victim’s life, as well as that of their family, and can cause much more serious ailments than the victim initially was treated for. Medical malpractice claims play an important role for injured victims and future patients alike, as they ensure future patients continue to receive the utmost care by medical professionals. Medical professionals are only liable for a medical malpractice claim if their actions did not rise to the same level as what a similarly situated medical professional would have decided.
Medical malpractice claims often follow complex laws that frequently change and impose limits to damages that can be recovered. The current non-economic damage limit in Nevada is $350,000, which will cover damages relating to pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other damages that are more difficult to calculate. However, Nevada does not impose limits on economic damages. Therefore, an injured victim will be entitled to bring a claim representing the full amount of medical care and lost income they experienced as a result of the medical malpractice.
Hospitals and other medical facilities are particularly in tune with potential medical malpractice claims and will often have insurance adjusters on-site to prevent claims from occurring. It is therefore important to discuss your injury with an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can advise you as to the likelihood of your claim’s success.
