What damages can I recover in a medical malpractice lawsuit?

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.
