Medical Negligence Questionnaire
Thank you for contacting us regarding your potential medical negligence claim. Our firm’s procedure is as follows:
You’ll find below some initial important questions that allow us to preliminarily evaluate whether we can assist you on your claim. Medical negligence cases are typically extremely technical and complex, as well often there are conflicts with our ability to sue certain providers (e.g., treating physician of our staff, client or other relationship). Please note, however, that everything submitted to us for a potential client is privileged—it cannot be disclosed (i.e., it’s confidential).
To have a viable, successful claim, an attorney must prove negligence, causation, and damages, and Nevada law most often requires at least one medical expert practicing in the same area as those involved to support the case with opinions under oath. For us to determine whether hiring an attorney and proceeding with a claim is in your best interest with our firm, we need to ask about what occurred, why you believe there was negligent conduct, and the extent of the damages caused by the potential medical negligence. Please respond to the questions below. Feel free to attach any supporting records, photographs or other evidence you think may be helpful for our review. If dropping anything off at our office, we cannot accept any original materials, rather only copies are to be provided.
Once received, one of our attorneys will review your information. When
contacted, either the attorney or assistant will advise you of the decision
or whether more information is requested. Please note that an attorney-client
relationship is NOT formed unless and until there is an executed fee agreement
between our firm and you. In other words, we do NOT represent you unless
and until we take your case by you and us signing a fee agreement. Further,
while we are reviewing your information to evaluate and investigate your
potential claim, we will NOT be tracking or protecting any limitations
deadline like the statute of limitations, which may be as little as
one (1) year from injury or a related death. Only by filing a lawsuit with the proper
materials can you protect the statute of limitations.
If you do not hear back from us within 14 days, you can consider this a
rejection of your case. While our goal is to respond to every inquiry
within 14 days, circumstances may unfortunately prevent us from doing
so. Therefore, you need to protect your own statute of limitations until
an attorney takes your case. So, while we are reviewing your potential
case, you should be contacting other attorneys and asking them to do the same.
Please confirm that you have read our firm’s procedure for medical negligence claims by checking the box below. Once you have done so, you will be directed to the Questionnaire. Thank you for your time and inquiry.
