Medical Malpractice

The primary focus of the Health Care Law Group has always been assisting practitioners, hospitals, and clinics through the malpractice litigation process. With over thirty years experience litigating in this area, the Health Care Law group has a long track record of proven success.

The Health Care Law group’s attorneys have handled hundreds of medical malpractice cases and have worked on cases in all areas of medicine, including high value birth and brain injury cases, death cases, and others. We have defended cases where the allegations have ranged from regular medical negligence in act or exercise of judgment, to more specific allegations like failure to refer, failure to obtain informed consent, misdiagnosis, negligent follow-up care, negligent nursing staff care, and wrong site surgery. We also have experience with lawsuits involving attempts by plaintiffs to attach liability to hospitals through corporate liability concepts and claims of negligent credentialing.

We litigate, try, mediate, and arbitrate medical malpractice claims all across South Dakota. We have appeared in the state trial and appellate courts in South Dakota, in the Federal District Courts of South Dakota, and at the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.
