Every medical malpractice claim is different, and it is difficult to determine the exact value. One issue is whether the claim is for injury or death. The ultimate answer is that your claim is worth whatever a jury will award you.
Some factors that go into determining the value of a claim include:
- Past and future medical bills caused by the malpractice
- Past and future lost wages
- Permanent impairment
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional injury
- If death, loss of love and affection and companionship of a deceased loved one.
If there is a minor child, loss of parental guidance.
