Childbirth Trauma - Avoidable birth injuries like lack of oxygen to the brain, improper use of birth-assisting tools, etc. causes infant damage.

Statute of Limitations for Filing Brawley Medical Malpractice Claims

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

When medical malpractice causes injuries, victims suffer physically, emotionally, and financially in lasting ways. No amount of money makes up for the pain and disruption to people’s lives. However, recovering compensation achieves important assistance meeting overwhelming needs created by physician negligence, hospital errors, and similar events. California malpractice lawyers focus on securing two main damage award categories when building injury claims resulting from subpar medical treatment.

Economic Damages

Economic damages provide quantifiable costs patients now face due to physician negligence or mistakes during medical care. These losses carry hard numbers making the case for necessary reimbursement for expenditures connected to the incident. Economic damages typically cover categories such as:

  • Medical expenses - All healthcare costs associated with follow-up treatment, hospital stays, medications, devices and ongoing care constitute legitimate economic damages. These costs may continue mounting for years or even a lifetime depending on the malpractice injury.
  • Lost income and benefits - Inability to work and job loss means sizable lost income over months or permanently. Malpractice lawyers account for all current and future earning power harmed.
  • Rehabilitation services – Needed physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychiatric treatment and other rehab programs qualify under economic damages too.
Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic losses consist of the physical pain and emotional trauma inflicted by medical negligence. Calculating dollar amounts for disrupted quality of life and suffering poses challenges, but veteran malpractice lawyers have methodologies. Categories under noneconomic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering – Both physical agony and mental anguish resulting from bad medical care make up these damages. The nature, extent and permanency of pain shape estimates.
  • Loss of enjoyment and companionship – Inability to participate in meaningful activities and losing relational bonds with loved ones connect to quality-of-life reductions justifying noneconomic damages too.

Securing fair compensation covering all facets of harm under economic and non-economic categories takes skilled and tenacious malpractice lawyers fighting for victims’ rights. The damages repay no measure of loss, but significantly aid continued healing.
