Las Vegas Medical Malpractice Attorney
30 Years of Experience Working For You
The health care system in the United States is second to none-both for
the quality of care available and the legal protections that are supported
in law. If a hospital, health care provider or medical professional is
negligent in the services they render, they are legally liable for any
harm that occurs. Some medical establishments rarely accept liability
without a fight, which is why it's so essential to have a competent,
Las Vegas medical malpractice lawyer in your corner.
We put our trust in the hands of medical professionals, but the unfortunate
reality is even the most qualified doctors can commit acts of negligence.
If you or a loved one is a victim of medical negligence, it's important
to understand that you may be eligible for compensation to make up for
the loss and suffering you've endured. Attorney Steven M. Burris has
years of experience handling these types of cases and goes above and beyond
in fighting for his clients.

How long do I have to file a claim in Nevada?
Most states have specific “statute of limitations” set in place
for people who are looking to file a medical malpractice claim. It’s
important that you are informed of these limitations so you don’t
miss the deadline to file your claim. In Nevada, any legal action against
a medical professional must be taken within 3 years following the date
of the injury, or within 1 year after the plaintiff discovers his or her
injury. Plaintiffs who miss the statute of limitations may still file
a claim, but the doctor or hospital will likely file a motion to have
the courts dismiss the case.
If you’ve been injured at the hands of a medical professional’s
negligence, it’s imperative that you call our firm as soon as possible
to begin discussing your legal options. Even if you’re unsure about
whether or not you have a case – speaking to a lawyer will help
you understand your rights and how we can protect them.
