Forms of Compensation You May Collect in a Marion Anesthesia Error Case
Quantifying proper settlement in a medical malpractice case involves three questions that you need to answer.
- What expenses do I have to pay because of the anesthesia error?
- How has my income been affected by the error?
- To what magnitude has my life been impacted by the error?
These questions are summed up in the three forms of damages you can collect in a medical malpractice claim: medical expenses, lost income, and non-economic damages.
Medical expenses are fairly simple. The cost of the botched procedure, as well as any necessary treatment resulting from the error, should be included in your damages. This is not limited to your initial injuries but also accounts for any treatment necessary for long-term physical conditions or disability.
Lost income cover time spent away from work due to the error. How much compensation you can receive is dependent on your wages and the amount of time you are unable to work. Certain physical or mental conditions can put you out of work permanently, which will drastically increase the value of your damages.
Non-economic damages account for the ways your injuries have affected you physically and emotionally. They include mental anguish, PTSD, loss of quality of life, and disfigurement.
