If your malpractice claim succeeds, you may recover money for:
- Medical expenses like hospital bills, ongoing care, and medication costs
- Lost income and reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium between spouses
- Mental distress
- Wrongful death damages if the medical negligence resulted in a fatality
Each case is different, and Indiana imposes a cap on how much claimants may receive in medical malpractice settlements and verdicts. Your attorney can help you understand what you may be eligible to recover in your case.
