In Minnesota, Medical malpractice, also referred to as medical negligence, applies to doctors, hospitals, nurses and other health care professionals. Medical malpractice in Minnesota occurs when one of these individuals fails to act reasonably or deviates from a reasonable standard of care that a similar medical professional would exercise under the same circumstances; leading to injury or death of a patient.

While a simple mistake is not automatically malpractice, an injury or death caused by the negligence of a hospital, nursing home, a physician, or other medical profession is covered by medical malpractice insurance. Claims lawyers are prepared to handle include those involving:

  • Anesthesia Error
  • Birth-Related Injury
  • Dental Negligence
  • Doctor Error
  • Emergency Room Errors
  • Gastric Bypass Complications
  • Hospital Error
  • Lasik Eye Surgery
  • Medication Overdose
  • Nursing Negligence
  • Bed Sores
  • Common Injuries
  • Malnutrition/Dehydration
  • Nurse and Physician Negligence
  • Nursing Home Info Center
  • Sexual Assault
  • Post-Surgical Infection
  • Prescription Negligence
  • Surgery Unnecessary
  • Wrongful Death

The reason so many doctors and hospitals in this country are not punished or do not answer for their negligent acts is because people don’t sue them. A lawsuit is the only deterrent. Minnesota medical societies do not punish doctors for malpractice, and the State does not take away their license due to malpractice. The only thing that keeps doctors and hospitals from being negligent is the fear of a lawsuit.

Commitment to Excellence

In Minnesota, medical malpractice is one of the most complex areas of personal injury law. In order to effectively handle medical malpractice, a lawyer must first work to comprehend the science behind the medicine, the injury and the negligence.
