What Types Of Damages Can Be Awarded In A Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Case

  • Damages are determined between economic loss and non-economic loss
  • Economic loss includes funeral and medical expenses that are an identifiable and numeric loss that can be recovered
  • Past damages and future damages are important because Medical Malpractice injuries are serious and long-term, making certain points incapable of arguing about
  • A medical economist may be needed to look at the needs of the patient in order to identify the cost of damages later in life
  • An injury specialist may also be needed to determine what the client needs for their injuries for the rest of their life, called a Life Care Plan
  • Non-economic loss is the pain and suffering, which could be the most important; how do you measure the value of pain?
  • These numbers can be determined differently, so it is important to have an attorney that can properly handle this in order to obtain all compensation
