Gardnerville, NV asked in Medical Malpractice for Nevada

Q: If the Board of Medical Examiners in my state finds in my favor, how do I benefit financially ?

I am the Plaintiff in a Negligence case but do not have an attorney working for me / with me. The Nevada Board of Medical Examiners is investigating my family physician from many years ago , regarding negligence in treating my already pre-existing condition which had gone undiagnosed / untreated since childhood . I was born in 1961 and this year after a CT Scan and dozens of hospital-advised physical therapy visits paid for through Medicaid as I have been unable to work due to pain and illness, a growth-plate injury was discovered, along with a soft-tissue injury, in the right leg. At least one other growth plate injury was detected via MRI in my neck and upper back / collar bone- nerves. I also have a diagnosis of PTSD and probable TBI. If the Medical Examiner investigation proves facts in my favor regarding Negligence / Failure in Duty of Care, will this help me get a cash settlement for Loss of Income ?

A: chances are no, as the statute of limitations would likely have run assuming you are over 20 years old.Why not contact a member of the Nevada Justice Association and get a free consult? Look for a NJA member who handles medical cases.
