What types of damages are recoverable in a medical malpractice lawsuit?

In a medical malpractice lawsuit, there are three main categories of damages that a plaintiff may be able to recover:

Economic damages

  • These are the out-of-pocket financial losses that you can document. They typically include:

Medical bills

Past, present, and future medical expenses related to treating the injury caused by the malpractice.

Lost income: Wages lost due to missing work because of the malpractice and recovery.

Lost earning capacity: If your ability to earn a living is permanently diminished due to the malpractice.

Other out-of-pocket expenses: Costs associated with medication, therapy, transportation, and other needs arising from the malpractice.

Non-economic damages:

These are intangible losses that are more difficult to quantify. They may include:

Pain and suffering: Physical and emotional pain caused by the malpractice and its treatment.

Mental anguish: Anxiety, depression, and other psychological distress resulting from the malpractice.

Loss of enjoyment of life: Inability to participate in activities you once enjoyed due to your injury.

Loss of consortium: Impairment of the marital relationship caused by the malpractice.

Punitive damages:

These are rarely awarded and are meant to punish the healthcare provider for egregious misconduct. They are not intended to compensate the plaintiff, but rather to deter future acts of malpractice.
