Fargo Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Understanding North Dakota Medical Negligence
Hospital and physician care can vary greatly in the quality that is provided. All practicing physicians must be licensed, but they don’t all deliver the same degree of care. If you were treated by a physician and nearly died — but recovered fully — then you do not have a medical malpractice or medical negligence case.
Sadly, substandard care that doesn’t result in a permanent serious disability is not a good case for medical malpractice litigation.
In order to receive compensation for medical malpractice, the care you received must be negligent and that negligence or error cause a permanent serious disability.
The Bossart Law Firm, P.C., represents people who have suffered a permanent disability due to medical error or negligence. It has been our experience that permanent damage is often related to the loss of oxygen and subsequent brain damage. Brain damage is often a permanent situation.
Under North Dakota law, there is a $500,000 cap on noneconomic damages for medical malpractice, and lost earnings are not included in an award. David Bossart is a lawyer who represents clients statewide as well as those in Moorhead, Minnesota, and the surrounding area.
Medical malpractice litigation can be expensive to pursue because the opposing party may have significant resources to fight a claim. An experienced medical malpractice attorney is necessary if you want to succeed in your claim.
