Is there a minimum-maximum amount of money that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case?
That really depends on which state that you’re living in or where the injury or death occurred. There are several states that haven’t enacted legislation that does put caps on damages that can be awarded in a medical negligence case. So one of the first things you need to do is check with a lawyer and let that lawyer research the law in the jurisdiction where the medical negligence has occurred. So the answer can definitely be different depending on the jurisdiction. One example is there are certain states where there are caps on what are called economic damages and noneconomic damages. The economic damages are your ability to earn a living. The noneconomic damages an example would be your pain and suffering. So, some some states have caps on non-economics, some states don’t. Some states have caps on even economic damages, some states don’t.
