As I’ve pointed out many times now, there is a one-year statute of limitations in many Nevada medical malpractice cases.
This means that if you request your medical records from your doctor, you should not let your doctor’s office delay provision of records for more than a week or two.
Undue delay in obtaining records could compromise your ability to bring your case.
If you have problems getting your medical records, contact an attorney. Time is of the essence in Nevada medical malpractice cases.
