In Nevada you only have one year from discovery of your injury to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Also, Nevada medical malpractice cases require an expert in the same practice area to write you an affidavit that they believe it was malpractice, which costs a lot of money and several weeks to several months of preparation time.
So if you are interested in pursuing a claim you need to act quickly, because any attorney you hire will have to hire medical experts, likely an obstetrician in your case, to be an expert witness. We handle these cases and have an experienced nurse who quickly does an initial review for us. If you are interested in proceeding for a case evaluation, you would need to order up your medical records from the hospital and ob/gyn for the delivery and follow up appointments, and bring them to the office as soon as possible for a review.

The only way to know if there was malpractice is to retain a local med mal lawyer who can order the medical records and send them to an expert to review to ascertain whether there was a breach of the standard of care. I’m sorry, but my firm only handles birth injury cases, failure to diagnose cancer cases, and wrong site surgery cases.
