Damages Available in Medical Malpractice

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice

When medical negligence leads to injury, financial costs often stack up quickly for victims. California malpractice law allows injured patients to recover various damages against liable healthcare providers to account for losses suffered. Common damages available include:

Economic Compensation

Economic damages in medical malpractice claims are tangible financial costs incurred due to the negligence like:

  • Medical Expenses: All past and future bills related to hospitalization, procedures, treatment, equipment, therapy, rehabilitation, in-home nursing care and more required to manage harm caused by the provider. This also factors in potential lifetime costs for long-term care in catastrophic cases.
  • Lost Income: If injuries prevent someone from working temporarily or permanently, projected earnings lost and diminished earning capacity are included. Damages account for promotions, raises and benefits lost.
  • Loss of Support: If negligence leads to the income-providing spouse’s death, survivors can claim household wages lost. Parents of severely disabled children can claim support expenses.
Noneconomic Compensation

Noneconomic damages compensate injury victims more subjectively for intangible yet impactful losses like:

  • Pain and Suffering: Damages align with the level and length of any physical pain, discomfort, suffering, mental anguish, PTSD, or emotional distress tied to the botched medical care.
  • Loss of Companionship: If negligence leads to death or permanent severe injury, close family members may receive further damages for loss of their loved one's fellowship.
  • Loss of Reputation: Particularly in cases of disfigurement or amputation, associated loss of identity, self-esteem and status can be claimed.
Punitive Damages

In exceptional cases where misconduct is intentional or grossly reckless, courts may additionally award punitive damages to penalize the provider. Consulting with a lawyer can help determine what damages apply.
