Elite Injury Attorneys Network
Medical malpractice occurs when a Nevada medical provider, such as a doctor, nurse, clinician or other staff member, acts in a negligent manner when treating your condition. This negligence may be in the form of an omission, careless mistake, an attempt to cut corners, or an intentionally malicious action.
For example, if your medical professional overlooked the best treatment option, misdiagnosed your condition or prescribed the wrong medication, you could suffer serious, permanent injuries. Medical errors are not something Nevada patients plan for, but they do occur. And when they happen, you could be stuck paying enormous medical bills and forced to take time off work.
If you or a loved one has been injured because of medical negligence, you deserve to be compensated. Nevada residents should talk with one of the attorneys from Elite Injury Attorneys’ Network, LLC. He will review your case and if it appears to have merit, work to find you a Nevada medical malpractice lawyer to take your case, for no additional fee.
