Medical negligence and the opioid crisis

As in other parts of the country, residents of Nevada are seeing the devastating effects of the opioid crisis. Although heroin is one cause of overdoses in the country, prescription opioids have been singled out as major contributors to this issue. As a result, medical doctors are being trained to practice responsible prescribing of this pain medication to help prevent further addiction and deaths.

Motion for attorney's fees in civil cases

People in Nevada who have paid for a lawyer for work on a civil case may think they can ask the losing party to pay for their legal fees. However, those who expect compensation will most likely be disappointed, as there are only certain circumstances in which the court orders the other party to cover attorney fees for these types of cases.

How cases are directed to the Court of Appeals or Supreme Court

If your legal goals were not met when you went before a Nevada district court, you may be curious about whether or not your case would be heard by the appellate or Supreme Court if you appeal. We at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., are familiar with the state's statutes regarding the appellate system and how they apply to a variety of case types.

Broken bones could lead to complications and chronic pain

Suffering a bone fracture in an accident may not seem like a cause for much concern for Nevada residents. Casts these days allow for maximum usage of the limb affected, and people are often on their way to recovery shortly. However, according to the Mayo Clinic, a bone fracture such as a broken leg bone leaves a person at risk for long-term complications, and these may not appear for some time after the initial injury.

Class actions over data breach may be successful

The list of companies that have reported customer data breaches is growing, and many consumers in Nevada may be rightly concerned over who has their personal information. Social Security numbers, credit and bank card numbers, birth dates and other information should be kept under the highest security to prevent identity theft. Companies that have been negligent should be held accountable. However, due to the massive numbers of people who have participated in litigation, payouts in the past have frequently been small.

When is my landlord responsible for an injury on the property?

You want your family and your guests to be safe when they are in your home in Nevada. For example, you may take care to keep your sidewalk and steps clear of debris and ice. Landlordology points out, though, that if you are renting the property, the threat of a fall may be your landlord's responsibility if it comes from a crack in the concrete.

Can a stay pending appeal help you?

If you have been involved in a Nevada court case that resulted in a judgment against you, appealing the decision right away may not be enough to prevent you from the financial cost the outcome requires. According to the Nevada statutes, you may be able to file a motion for a stay pending your appeal.

Documentation decisions for startups

While you are in the planning stages of your Nevada business is the time for you to research the legal documents that you will need. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we have represented many entrepreneurs in negotiations and litigation to correct issues that may have been avoidable with the right documentation.
