Damages You May be Eligible For in Your Medical Malpractice Suit

The law allows victims of medical malpractice to sue the guilty party for all financial consequences directly resulting from their injury. This includes economic losses such as:

  • The costs of reasonable and necessary medical care
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • The costs of domestic services
  • Loss of income earnings

The law allows you to recover compensation for future medical care and expenses that (you can prove) will be necessary to treat your injury. Therefore, if you can prove that your injury will cause you to miss weeks or months off work, you may collect money to cover the loss of future wages.

Non-Economic Damages

Depending on your situation, you may be able to recover money for non-economic damages such as:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Inconvenience and loss of quality of life
  • Disfigurement and physical impairment
  • Mental and emotional anguish

Wrongful Death Cases

If your loved one has died as a result of medical malpractice, as a family member, you may also be eligible for the following damages:

  • Burial expenses
  • Loss of income that would have supported family members
  • Emotional suffering
  • Loss of companionship
