Financial Compensation for Victims in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Financial Compensation for Victims in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Medical mistakes can cause catastrophic harm with lifelong effects. While no amount of money can undo the damage, financial compensation is crucial for victims. There are different types of damages available in medical malpractice cases.

Economic Damages

These compensate for the tangible financial costs the injured person incurs. Economic damages can include:

  • Medical expenses like hospital bills, doctor fees, therapy, and prescription medications
  • Lost income and loss of future earnings if the victim can no longer work
  • Rehabilitation costs including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and counseling
  • In-home care expenses for assistance with activities of daily living
Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages address the intangible losses from medical negligence. These can include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium between spouses
  • Loss of enjoyment of life if disabilities prevent participation in activities

Punitive damages may also be warranted if actions are especially egregious.

Wrongful Death Damages

For fatal medical errors, the decedent’s estate can claim damages on behalf of heirs. This compensation helps family members with:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of consortium between spouses
  • Loss of companionship for children who lose a parent
  • Wages the deceased could have earned if life was not cut short

Knowing what types of damages are recoverable empowers victims to seek fair compensation. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can thoroughly investigate errors, proving losses for the strongest possible claim.
