Henderson Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Dedicated Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Henderson, Nevada

At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith, our Henderson, Nevada medical malpractice attorneys know just how often medical errors can occur, leaving our clients seriously injured as a result. And some of these injuries are occurring in our Clark County hospitals.

The Summerlin Hospital in Las Vegas is currently notifying patients to possible hospital-acquired infections that resulted from the improper disinfection of medical instruments during prostate cancer surgeries. And a Johns Hopkins study suggests medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the United States. Our Henderson personal injury attorneys have recovered significant settlements and jury verdicts for those who were injured in our community, and we can seek a similar outcome for you and your family if you have suffered any harm during medical malpractice.

How Often Does Medical Malpractice Occur in the United States?

Approximately 12 million people suffer from a form of medical malpractice throughout the U.S. each year.

In addition, a survey on medical errors that was conducted nationwide by the University of Chicagofound:

  • 41% of people believed a medical error was made during their care in the U.S.
  • 1 in 5 people believe that they may have been subject to some form of medical malpractice in the past

When you trust medical professionals with your care and become injured as a result, you are entitled to pursue financial recovery for the harm caused. The point of going to the doctor is to find out what ails you while pursuing the best solution for your illness.

When doctors, nurses, technicians, or other medical staff are negligent in their duties, and you are injured as a result, we can help you pursue the responsible party for the harm they caused.

What Are the Most Commonly Reported Types of Medical Errors in the United States?

The three most commonly reported types of medical errors include:

  • Diagnostic failures where a diagnosis is wrong, missed, or delayed, which can include cancer diagnosis or serious organ damage, including heart failure
  • Medication errors, including prescribing the wrong medication and/or dosage
  • Surgical errors, including instruments that are left behind or that cause infection

Where Can Medical Malpractice Occur in Henderson, Nevada?

Our medical malpractice attorneys in Henderson, Nevada understand that there is no limit to where medical errors can occur. You can suffer medical malpractice during emergency room negligence, while giving birth, during surgery, or even a routine doctor’s visit.
