Affidavit of Merit Requirement Limited to Allegations of Medical Malpractice

McQuade v. Ghazal Mountain Dental Group, 2014 WL 4804063 (Nev. 2014)

This short decision of the Nevada Supreme Court explains that a medical expert’s affidavit of merit is only required for verifying malpractice allegations against doctors. Accompanying allegations that accuse a hospital or a clinic of negligently hiring the defaulting physician and claims sounding in vicarious liability require no such verification.
