What Damages Are Practitioners Liable For?
Medical malpractice damages can be categorized as one of the following:
Compensatory damages may include economic damages, including:
- Lost earning capacity
- Lifecare expenses
- Medical expenses
- Past and future losses
These damages also include non-economic damages, which assess the injury itself, psychological and physical harm, such as:
- Losing one’s vision or legs
- Extreme pain
- Emotional distress
Punitive damages are generally reserved when the defendant is found guilty of malicious or willful misconduct. Because punitive damage is a form of punishment, it is paired with actual or compensatory damages.
