Krebsbach, et al. v. Trinity Hospitals, Inc., et al. 2020 ND 24
Docket No.: 20190096
Filing Date: 1/27/2020
Case Type: TORTS (NEGLIGENCE, LIAB., NUIS.)
Author: Crothers, Daniel John
Highlight: Negligence claims relating to phlebotomy services performed by a hospital are governed by the two-year malpractice statute of limitations.
In a medical malpractice action, the statute of limitations begins to run when the plaintiff knows, or with reasonable diligence should know, of the injury, its cause and the defendant’s possible negligence.
The tort of deceit involves the suppression of a fact by one who is bound to disclose it.
