​​Medical Malpractice Compensatory Damages

To build a case for medical malpractice the plaintiff must prove that the defendant failed to meet the appropriate standard of care; that the defendant’s action or lack of it caused the plaintiffs injury and the doctor or other medical professional’s negligence caused damage to the plaintiff.

Compensatory Damages
Compensatory Damages is the amount of money that is actually intended to compensate the plaintiff. It covers the cost of the injury, economic losses, pain and suffering and more. Compensatory damages are basically intended to try to put the injured party in the same position as he/she was prior to the injury. It can be broken up into Actual Damages and General Damages.

Actual Damages typically include the following:
    All medical and hospitalization bill for the treatment of the injuries
    Wages lost due to work missed
    Cost of prescription and maintenance drugs
    Cost of wheelchair, crutches and other needs
    Cost of household and nursing help that is needed until full recovery

General Damages are actually damages that are difficult to put value and quantify like:
    Pain and suffering including mental anguish
    Disfigurement
    Loss of relationship
    Loss of having a normal life
    Value of future medical expenses
    Value of future wage lost
