Consequences Of Medical Negligence
Malpractice injuries or deaths are extremely traumatic for the injured patients and their families. It is unthinkable to most patients that their doctors or other health care providers could ever do them harm. Nevertheless, doctors and other health care providers, however well-intentioned, occasionally make mistakes. They carry insurance for just such occurrences.
In order to bring a claim for medical malpractice in the state of Minnesota, it must be shown that the doctor or health care provider breached the normal standard of care in their treatment of the injured party and that the breach caused injury to the victim. There is a four-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice actions in Minnesota, but that deadline may be extended under certain limited circumstances.
