Personalized legal representation for a wide range of medical negligence issues
The term medical negligence or medical malpractice refers to a variety of legal issues that may arise in the context of healthcare. Some of the most common types of medical negligence cases involve:
- failure to properly diagnose a medical condition or event
- birth defects and injuries
- surgical errors
- failure to properly obtain informed consent
- errors in prescribing or administering medication
- delayed treatment of imminent cardiac events
Medical negligence cases may arise at any point during the evaluation and treatment process. Some cases are based on the failure to diagnose a patient’s condition at the outpatient, routine visit level while others result during the emergency department or inpatient hospital setting. There are often many aspects and seemingly insignificant details of a medical negligence case that must be fully investigated to develop a solid legal strategy. It is important to seek legal advice and support from an experienced Minot medical negligence attorney with a successful track record of tackling a variety of complex cases.
Medical negligence claims are governed by strict Statutes of Limitation
Like other personal injury cases, the Statute of Limitations in North Dakota for medical negligence cases is two years. This means that you must file your claim within two years from the date the injury occurred or the date you became aware of your injuries. While many injuries are apparent almost immediately following the negligent action, some conditions may not present until weeks, months or years later. To ensure that your rights are preserved, it is essential to consult a skilled medical negligence attorney as soon as you suspect that something may be amiss.
