The Nevada Malpractice Landscape

Nevada has historically had an unstable medical malpractice marketplace. Many carriers have entered and exited the state over the years, leading to problems for physicians. Prior to tort reforms being passed in 2002, Nevada physicians were facing skyrocketing premiums and many were leaving the state. This situation led to a 2002 tort reform bill, which capped noneconomic damages at $350,000. However, it allowed for exceptions for gross negligence and exceptional circumstances, which physicians argued nullified any impact on rising medical malpractice insurance rates. The issue was ultimately decided in favor of the physicians when voters approved the 2004 “Keep Our Doctors in Nevada” ballot initiative, which rescinded any exceptions to the noneconomic damages cap and added further barriers to filing frivolous lawsuits.

Tort Reform in Nevada

The noneconomic damage cap and subsequent ballot initiative have helped to stabilize medical malpractice rates in the Silver State. Other important measures include joint and several liability reform, collateral source reform, limits on attorney fees and the use of periodic payments. Nevada has faced several challenges to its noneconomic damage cap. Most recently, the Nevada Supreme Court upheld the cap, overturning an earlier ruling that it was unconstitutional.

Does Nevada have…

  • Damage Caps? Yes, noneconomic damages are capped at $350,000.
  • Patient Compensation Fund? No
  • Apology Law? No
  • Collateral Source Reform? Yes, verdicts must be reduced by the amount of any collateral benefits.
  • Periodic Payments? Yes, for awards equal to or in excess of $50,000 in future damages, periodic payments must be allowed at either party’s request.
  • Joint Liability Reform? Yes, defendants are only severally liable for both economic and noneconomic damages in medical liability cases.
  • Limits on Plaintiff Attorney’s Fees? Yes, 40 percent of the first $50,000 recovered; 33 1/3 percent of the next $50,000; 25 percent of the next $500,000, and 15 percent of any amount exceeding $600,000.

Medical Malpractice Rates in Nevada

Overview

Nevada rates have stabilized in recent years, though they remain higher than in many neighboring states. Following the tort reform measures outlined above, Nevada rates began inching lower as the marketplace stabilized and more carriers entered it.
