North Dakota Personal Injury Overview

Personal injury law involves civil claims in which an individual is injured through the negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct of another person, a company, or property owner. A personal injury lawsuit may arise from physical or emotional injuries. Personal injury law compensates individuals injured as a result of another's negligence or intentional misconduct. Personal injury laws vary from state to state. If you believe you have a personal injury claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in North Dakota to evaluate your claim.

North Dakota follows a system using the modified comparative negligence – 50% rule.  In states following a modified comparative fault – 50% rule, an injured party can only recover if it is determined that his or her fault in causing the injury is 49% or less, with the resulting damage award reduced by the injured party’s amount of fault.  If the injured party’s fault level reaches 50%, he or she cannot recover any damages resulting from the accident.  For example, if Debbie sued Dave for damages she suffered in a car accident involving their vehicles, and Debbie was 50% at fault, Debbie would not recover anything from Dave.  If, however, Debbie was 40% at fault, she could recover damages, but the damage award would be reduced by her portion of the fault in causing the injury.  Therefore, a finding that Debbie suffered $10,000 in damages would result in Debbie receiving an award reduced by 40%, or a final award of $6,000.

A statute of limitations is a type of law that restricts the period of time that a person may initiate legal proceedings.  Time limits can vary depending on the type of case and the state where the particular cause of action occurred. To learn more about statutes of limitations, read our Statute of Limitations page. To see a state by state comparison chart for the personal injury statute of limitations for each state, read our Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Actions page.

North Dakota Statutes of Limitations

In North Dakota, the courts follow a modified joint and several liability approach in entering judgment against multiple defendants.  Generally, North Dakota has eliminated joint and several liability except in cases where it is determined that the defendants acted in concert to harm the plaintiff.  In most other cases, each defendant is responsible only for the proportion of negligence attributed to him or her.
