Medical Malpractice in South Dakota

When you are sick, you expect the doctor to help you, not hurt you. But mistakes happen. If you think that you or someone you love is the victim of medical malpractice, talk to a South Dakota attorney immediately. You may be able to get compensation for your injuries through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

The Basics of S.D. Medical Malpractice Law

Medical malpractice is one of the most misunderstood areas of the law. To successfully prove medical malpractice, your lawyer must do more than show that a doctor, nurse or healthcare provider made a mistake while treating you. Under South Dakota medical malpractice law, your attorney must:

  • Prove that the medical provider failed to follow the standard of care (also known as the standards of good medical practice) when treating you
  • You were injured as a result
  • That injury cost you money

If your medical malpractice claim is successful, you can recover money to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related expenses.
