Q: What type of compensation could I receive in a medical malpractice lawsuit?
Many of our medical malpractice clients have never had to hire a lawyer before or deal with legal issues, so we often get this question. They don't know how to break down certain damages and how much various problems are "worth." We understand this and that is why when you are facing a medical malpractice lawsuit, our attorneys will help you every step of the way. The important thing to remember is that you're not just suing a healthcare professional for acting negligently; you are suing them because their negligent actions cost you a lot of money, time, pain, suffering, and more. There's no reason why you should have to pay for someone else's unfortunate actions, and that is why medical malpractice lawsuits can be so important for patients.
Damages will vary depending on the details of your case, but in general, these are the types of things you can receive compensation for in a medical malpractice lawsuit:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages/time out of work
- Pain and suffering
- Impact on your future earning capacity
- Funeral expenses, if the malpractice resulted in death
