Are you an attorney dealing with dental or medical malpractice cases in North Dakota? JD.MD offers services to evaluate the merit of your case and strengthen your claim for a positive outcome in court.
Medical or dental malpractice occurs when a physician or health care provider does not exercise good judgment or does not uphold the accepted standards in their practice. Medical negligence does happen in North Dakota and is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Patients become victims when doctors act outside their scope of expertise, prescribe the wrong medication, misdiagnose the ailment, and cause harm and injury. Even though doctors and health practitioners are well trained and follow ethical guidelines, errors do occur. Not all incidents have merit, or are considered to be dental or medical malpractice, so JD.MD will help you through the evaluation process.
