What damages are awarded in a medical malpractice claim?

Damages for a medical malpractice case may include:

  1. Past, present and future pain and suffering
  2. Past, present and future loss of income
  3. Past, present and future expenses for doctor bills, medications, or other equipment
  4. Loss of the companionship, society, and/or sexual relationship of a spouse, which would include such things as the ability to keep house, perform yard work, repair the car, etc.
  5. The loss of the enjoyment of life, or an inability to do or enjoy rec-reational activities
  6. Past, present, and future mental anguish and suffering
  7. Any permanent disfigurement or impairment which you may have suffered as a result of the malpractice


It is very important that you keep track of your medical expenses, including all records of any bills for doctors, medications, crutches, wheelchairs, spe-cial beds, special clothing or shoes, or any other item which the doctor rec-ommends that you purchase or use. You should also keep track of the number of visits to your physician and the mileage for these visits.
