We are often asked that question and the answer is always the same, you really cannot have any expectation when it comes to your medical malpractice claim. There is no way to know how much money you may receive from your medical malpractice claim because there are too many variables. When you hire a medical malpractice attorney, he or she will conduct a fact-gathering investigation of your case including a focus especially on evidence of medical negligence and the extent of your injuries and damages. Only after this investigation will you and your attorney be able to discuss numbers for your case and even then, those numbers are not guaranteed.
Although your medical malpractice award cannot be guaranteed, the amount of your award is heavily influenced by a few very important factors listed below.
In order to be fully compensated for your injuries, you may seek recovery for damages including medical bills (past, ongoing, and future), lost wages, lost future earnings and benefits, loss of consortium, pain, and suffering, and emotional distress.
