What Damages Can You Recover For a Medical Malpractice Case?

Depending on how severe your injuries were and whether the negligence of a medical professional resulted in your death, you or your family may be entitled either to economic, non-economic, or punitive damages.

MEDICAL EXPENSES

This includes all past and future medical expenses such as ER visits, doctor’s appointments, and others.

LOST WAGES AND EARNING CAPACITY

You could be eligible for compensation if your injury forces you to take a time-out from work or prevents you from returning to work.

PAIN AND SUFFERING

This refers to the amount of physical pain and suffering you have suffered from your injuries. The extent of your injuries will determine the severity and type. Emotional distress from your injuries such as anxiety and fear, depression, fear, and mental suffering, are also considered pain and suffering damages.

LOSS OF CONSORTIUM

In certain instances, the spouse of a victim of medical malpractice could be entitled to damages. These damages may include loss of companionship or sexual relations. These damages are usually awarded to victims who have sustained a permanent, life-altering injury.

You may also be entitled to punitive damages in addition to the damages already mentioned.

Charlip Law Group provides personalized guidance during your case evaluation with some of the most experienced medical malpractice attorneys. This will help you determine which damages are available to you, and how we can make sure you get all the compensation you deserve.

How to Choose the Best Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Medical Negligence

Here are three things you should look out for when choosing an attorney to meet your needs.

Although it may seem obvious, it is important to verify the credentials of any medical malpractice lawyers you are considering. Do they have the financial and human resources necessary to handle this type of case?

Florida is a highly specialized state in medical malpractice. Personal injury cases that involve planes, trains, or automobiles are not able to be filed at the same time as personal injury cases. You must ensure that you comply with all laws to protect doctors from lawsuits. Otherwise, your case could be dismissed. Your case must be reviewed by an expert and that expert must sign an affidavit. After that, the entire pre-suit process must be completed. A good medical malpractice lawyer will be able to help you navigate the legal maze and get your case to court.

This is an important question. These types of experts are extremely valuable, so we recommend looking for the best-qualified firms. You can be sure that the expert handling your case is reliable and stable.

Who Can File for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit or a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Patients who have been seriously injured by medical malpractice can be advocates for themselves and learn about the process and requirements. They can seek damages awards and settlements to pay their medical bills and compensate for lost income.

In any medical malpractice lawsuit, both the plaintiff and their medical malpractice attorney need to establish the following elements.

  1. A duty was owed to the patient. This applies when a hospital, medical provider, or other entity undertakes the patient’s treatment.
  2. There was a breach of duty. The hospital or other medical provider failed to adhere to the relevant standard.
  3. The breach caused the injury. Legally speaking, medical malpractice must be the “proximate cause” of the injury.
  4. These are losses, whether financial, physical, or emotional, that result from a negligent act or omission. A victim of medical negligence, along with certain family members, can recover damages. This includes reduced wages due to a disability, severe suffering, and emotional distress related to injuries or diminished enjoyment of one’s life.

Not all of the elements listed above must be present in order to bring a medical negligence lawsuit. After the plaintiff’s medical malpractice attorney files a case, the discovery process starts. This is when both sides share relevant information about the case, such as medical records or patient histories.

"I had a class action suit to file, and needed to find representation in Florida. My case was complex, and in an industry most people don't know much about. After consultations with two other firms who both declined my case, Charlip Law Group was my next call. David spoke to me personally, and he was the first attorney that actually understood the issue. We had a strong case, and in the end all class members that participated ended up with 100% indemnification and it was no small amount either. Make Charlip your first call."
