Las Vegas Medical Malpractice Attorney
When you visit a doctor or submit to a surgeon’s scalpel, you put your life in their hands. Physicians in Las Vegas are well educated and highly trained, so it is reasonable to expect high quality medical treatment and professional competence. Most medical professionals exceed these expectations and work honorably for their patients, but a few also do not, and it is you—the patient—who suffers the consequences.
Trust an Experienced Las Vegas Medical Malpractice Lawyer
If you have been hurt or someone you love has been seriously injured or killed by medical malpractice, you need a trusted Las Vegas personal injury lawyer to effectively represent your interests. Physicians and insurance providers defend medical malpractice claims with vigor. For doctors, medical malpractice liability exposes them to prohibitively high insurance premiums, and jeopardizes their medical licenses and professional goodwill. Insurance companies simply take a hit to their bottom line profit margin. The incentive to settle your claim for pennies on the dollar or defeat it in court is present and pressing for both.

Types of Las Vegas Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice claims can be brought for a variety of reasons. The following are a handful of some of the more common grounds for medical malpractice claims in Las Vegas:
- Lack of informed consent − patients must be given the information necessary to make an informed decision about their treatment
- Incorrect procedure − surgeons sometimes perform the right operation in the wrong place, or perform the wrong operation all together
- Erroneous diagnosis − physicians make the wrong diagnosis when symptoms and test results indicate otherwise
- Adverse outcome − the course of treatment chosen by physicians is frequently unsuccessful, leaving patients worse off than before
