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

Since 2005, damages in Montana medical malpractice cases have been based on a “reduced chance of recovery.”  Economic losses such as medical expenses and loss of income are recoverable. Noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering are limited to $250,000. A court may impose punitive damages against a defendant if the defendant is guilty of deliberate malice.
