Medical Malpractice Damages

There are two types of damages available in medical malpractice cases, economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages seek to compensate the victim and his/her family for any economic or financial loss sustained from the medical malpractice. Typical examples of economic loss includes:

  1. Medical and hospitalization bills incurred to treat your injuries
  2. Expenses for future medical treatment because of your insures
  3. Wages lost due to work missed while you recuperate
  4. Future lost wages due to missed work
  5. Costs of household or nursing help during recovery, including costs of wheelchair or crutches required

Non-Economic Damages

Malpractice victims can also sue for non-economic damages in addition to economic damages. Non-economic damages include the things that can’t be precisely documented in dollars, including:

  1. Pain and suffering endured due to injuries and any subsequent mental anguish
  2. Scarring and disfigurement
  3. Loss of consortium (benefits of a relationship)
  4. Loss of normal life
