Medical Malpractice Client Testimonial

"I was involved in an extremely serious car accident in January of this year. My car was totaled and I was transported by ambulance to UMC ER as a result. I knew right away that I would need some assistance with my medical bills, insurance, and recovery so I looked on Yelp and started to do research on which of the numerous attorneys in Las Vegas to seek help from. This was the first time in my life I had ever been in such a serious accident and needed assistance. There are so many law firms here in the valley that it was just overwhelming for me at first. The best decision I made was to choose Bernstein & Poisson. From the first call I made into their office to the day I received my settlement, the staff was nothing but supportive and helpful. They kept me updated throughout the entire process from beginning to end. Both Sean Akari and his assistant Jovanna were lifesavers and I could not have asked for a better team to help me with this process!"

A bad medical result or even a hospital death is not necessarily medical malpractice. If the doctor followed the accepted standard of care, and the care resulted in injury or death, there is nothing a medical malpractice lawyer can do. For example, an illness can be misdiagnosed even after a doctor has ordered all of the proper tests and skillfully examined the patient. However, if the doctor failed to order the appropriate tests and fails to recognize observable symptoms of an illness, the doctor may be guilty of malpractice.

Examples of malpractice may include:

  • Failure to prevent a birth injury, such as cerebral palsy or Erb’s Palsy
  • Failure to diagnose cancer, sepsis, impending heart attack, meningitis, pulmonary embolism and other disease
  • Misdiagnosed herniated disks
  • Surgery and anesthesia error
  • Performing unnecessary surgery
  • Failure to monitor patients
  • Failure to provide conduct appropriate medical tests
  • Failure to properly read X-rays
  • Medication & Pharmacy Errors

We rely on hospitals, doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other medical staff to follow standards of care when it comes to diagnosing illness, conducting appropriate lab tests, surgery, and providing appropriate follow-up care. When medical providers fail to follow standard practices, the damages can be catastrophic.

Bernstein & Poisson, The Top Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Las Vegas

To file a medical malpractice lawsuit, Nevada law requires our lawyers to first obtain the complete medical records from your medical provider and give them to an expert doctor. That expert will review the records and provide our lawyers with an opinion. If the expert’s opinion is that your treatment fell below the accepted community standard of care, then the expert doctor will provide our lawyers with an affidavit that will allow us to initiate an action against the at-fault medical provider.
