What is the potential liability in a medical malpractice case in Minnesota?

Medical malpractice plaintiffs in Minnesota can recover all of their quantifiable expenses such as loss of income, medical bills and rehabilitation expenses. Additionally, they can recover for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and loss of consortium. While there is no monetary limit placed on punitive damages, punitive damages are only allowed in limited circumstances when a plaintiff has proven that a defendant had a deliberate disregard for the patient’s safety. All jury awards are subject to judicial review.
