Our firm recently reached a $250,000.00 settlement on behalf of the parents of a child whose wrongful death was the result of medical malpractice committed during his birth. This amount represented 50% of the $500,000.00 statutory cap because this case was against a county hospital. (Please note that there are generally no statutory caps on medical malpractice cases in Minnesota).
In the case referenced above, several months went by and the parents still were not sure why their son died a mere few days after he was born. They were not getting any answers from the hospital where their son was delivered or from anyone else.
