About Medical Malpractice in North Dakota
North Dakota has a two year statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims. While this may seem like a reasonable period, many times the full extent of injuries cannot be known until well after the fact. For example, one client must wait to see if a remedy might restore his vision that was lost after a doctor failed to diagnose a treatable eye condition. Likewise, nerve damage or brain damage to newborns may not be discovered or fully realized until the baby is one or two years old.
You should contact anattorney as soon as you suspect malpractice. Attorney Mark Larson will consult with medical experts to gauge the prognosis for recovery and ongoing care needs, and to demonstrate how the doctor, nurse or medical staff failed to meet the accepted standard of care.
Federal Tort Claims
We have handled a number of cases dealing with medical malpractice in North Dakota against hospitals that are governed by federal agencies.
- Air Force Base hospitals — A serviceman cannot file a claim against the government, but we can bring a claim on behalf of a dependent spouse or child. Mr. Larson recovered the largest settlement in state history for a stillborn baby. The delivering doctor at the North Dakota air base hospital failed to take the baby by C-section when the mother developed a fever and by waiting for a natural delivery, the baby also became fevered. The infant’s distress was compounded when the mother was injected with a saline solution, resulting in the stillbirth.
