A trip to the doctor is no different.

At Ladah Law, PLLC, we are experienced with medical malpractice law. We know what to do when this happens to you. Give us a call today: 702-252-0055
When a surgery or other medical procedure leads to further complications requiring hospitalization or additional surgery, it is often difficult to find out what was the exact cause of the problem. HIPAA regulations and the reporting procedures of doctors and hospitals make it difficult for you to find out why your surgery has turned into a health crisis.
Nobody likes to file suit against their doctor, however, sometimes that is the only way to gain access to the necessary information to find out why your elective surgery made everything worse. Gathering information and records from doctors, hospitals, anesthesiologists, and other entities requires specific permission that the law can obtain in these cases.
Not all medmal claims are filed against physicians. Any health care provider can fail to uphold their duty of care to a patient and cause the patient to suffer a worsened condition. For example, a hospital’s administration can mishandle patient records, resulting in a patient receiving medication meant for another individual or a physician failing to take a patient’s health history into account when diagnosing him or her because the physician did not have the patient’s full medical record. Pharmaceutical companies can be responsible for patient suffering as well by manufacturing faulty, defective, or even dangerous drugs and products and marketing products in a misleading manner. Sometimes, more than one party’s negligence contributes to a patient’s worsened condition. In cases like this, the patient may file multiple claims, each addressing a different party’s negligence.
Determining the cause and the liable parties for medical mistakes makes it possible for you to receive just compensation for your medical complications. Our detailed legal approach means that we don’t miss the little things that created your medical disaster. The little things really matter in medical negligence & malpractice cases.
Doctors and other health care providers have the well-developed knowledge and skills to treat their patients’ needs, right? After all, medical school and other educational programs for health care providers are rigorous, requiring full dedication of their students. So how can an oversight or a blatantly incorrect action by a healthcare provider happen? There are many reasons behind cases of medical neglect, negligence or malpractice, such as:
These are explanations for why medical malpractice occurs, not excuses for it. No matter what reason is behind your injury or worsened condition, if it occurred because of an act of negligence that could have been prevented, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages through a claim. In some cases, patients die as the result of health care provider negligence. If you have lost a loved one to a preventable medical error, you can seek compensation for the damages associated with his or her death such as his or her burial expenses and medical bills, the loss of his or her economic contributions to your household, and your loss of his or her companionship.
Even though you may be reticent to seek for medical help at this point, seeking the proper medical attention to recover from your injuries should be your first priority. We can help you locate a physician that can examine your injuries and determine your best course for recovery.
We then set about gathering more data and evidence for your case. This can include photographs of the injury, recall information about the device or medication involved, and your medical record. When needed, we consult with doctors and surgeons who will review your records and testify on your behalf if necessary. They are expert witnesses, professionals whose expertise gives them the authority to speak about your case without personally having treated you. Medical negligence or malpractice suits can be very complicated but we have the resources and experience to make sure you receive the compensation you need and deserve.

In Nevada, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims is three years from the date of the patient’s injury or one year from the date that he or she should reasonably have discovered the injury, whichever comes first.
