The plaintiff, Ida O. Busta, filed her complaint in the District Court for the Eighth Judicial District in Cascade County in which she sought compensation for damages to Delbert F. Busta pursuant to § 27-1-501, MCA, and to his heirs pursuant to § 27-1-513, MCA, based on her allegation that Delbert's death was caused by the negligence of the defendant, Columbus Hospital Corporation. Following trial of the issues raised by the parties' pleadings, a Cascade County jury returned its verdict in which it found that Delbert's injuries and death were caused by the negligence of Columbus and the contributory negligence of Delbert and apportioned seventy percent of fault to the Hospital and thirty percent of fault to Delbert. The jury found that Delbert and his estate were damaged in the amount of $5,000 and that his heirs were damaged in the amount of $800,000 as a result of his death. Based on the jury's apportionment of liability, the District Court entered judgment in favor of Delbert's estate in the amount of $3,500 and in favor of his heirs in the amount of $560,000. Columbus appeals from the judgment of the District Court, from the order of the District Court denying its motion for a new trial, and from the District Court's denial of its motion for offset against the judgment pursuant to § 27-1-308, MCA. We affirm the judgment and orders of the District Court.
