COMMON TYPES OF HOSPITAL INJURIES
There are a vast range of injuries that can occur due to hospital negligence,
but some are particularly common. In some cases, certain injuries are
found to be particularly common at the hospital in question, suggesting
that there may be bad practices or other issues at that facility.

- Bed falls caused by forgetting to put up bed rails
- Falls caused by failure of nurses to follow fall risk procedures
- Medication errors (administering wrong drug, or wrong dosage amount)

Trusted Counsel In Las Vegas
Most hospitals are owned by national chains who keep large staffs of attorneys
specializing in defending such cases on retainer. The chains are usually
self-insured, which means that they are paying from their own "pocket."
Even in the clearest of cases, they will not settle without undergoing
serious litigation by attorneys they know are capable of going to trial
with these legally complex cases.
At Law Offices of Steven Burris, our attorneys have handled over a hundred
lawsuits against Las Vegas hospitals. One of our firm members was for
three years in charge of the State agency that then regulated lawsuits
against doctors and hospitals, and is widely known and respected in the field.
