You put an immense amount of trust in your doctors, even entrusting your very life to their advice and treatment. When a mistake is made in your medical care, it can have profound and lasting impacts upon your life and the lives of your loved ones. If you are one of the millions that receives their health care and treatment from Kaiser, you are not eligible to pursue financial damages for a case of medical malpractice or negligence in the court system. Other options are available to you, however, and you can begin exploring these by contacting our Las Vegas, Nevada medical malpractice and negligence attorneys as soon as possible.
The Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Permanente Medical Group make up one of the largest health care providers in Nevada. When you are insured by Kaiser, their policies include provisions that prohibit you from bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit against one of their hospitals or doctors. Patients must instead follow an arbitration process and jump through Kaiser’s own administrative hoops in order to pursue damages. This can be a complex and confusing process, and because of the selection process for your arbiter, can be very unfair and one-sided against your interests.
It is critical to procure exemplary legal representation if you choose to enter arbitration with the Kaiser Foundation to recover a settlement for your pain, suffering and physical debilitations. On average, a malpractice settlement with Kaiser is about $500,000. The skilled attorneys at Breeden Malpractice and Injury Law are intimately familiar with the Kaiser arbitration process. We can help guide you through a confusing and complex process and will fight for the settlement you deserve. We handle cases of Kaiser medical malpractice or negligence throughout the state of Nevada.
Finding the right lawyer in a claim against Kaiser is more important than in any other medical practice case. Contact our Las Vegas Kaiser Malpractice and Negligence Attorney today to begin a strong legal advocacy for your interests.
