How do you protect yourself from surgical mistakes?

Medical errors are a significant cause of serious injury or death for people in Nevada, as well as across the country. Your doctor or surgeon might falsely diagnose an issue you are having, give you the wrong prescription or make a mistake during surgery. Additionally, you might be vulnerable to infection when you stay in the hospital. If you undergo a surgical procedure, you could be exposed to bacteria or viruses, and your immune system is likely to be weakened during recovery.

Understanding how insurance scams can hurt businesses

Often, people who file false claims so they can be paid by an insurer do not think they are doing any harm – or they do not care. However, insurance fraud is a crime that is detrimental to everyone involved, from the insurance company to consumers, who pay for the bogus claims of others with higher premiums. It is likely that your company deals with insurance in some form or other. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we feel it is important that you and other Las Vegas business owners understand how insurance fraud can affect companies and consumers.

Undocumented immigrants often subjected to employee abuse

Unfortunately, many employers mistreat their undocumented immigrant workers. It is important for employers to understand the legal ramifications of denying employees their basic rights, since doing so may result in legal action.
