How much is my medical malpractice case worth?
The value of a medical malpractice case is going to range due to all kinds of variables. Florida law does say that, to the extent that anyone has suffered a loss due to another’s negligence, they are entitled to be compensated for that loss. Our firm makes it our fundamental purpose to ensure that we have complete and total compensation for any loss that we can prove in court. That means that we want to have an understanding about how an injury in a medical malpractice setting has affected somebody’s income and ability to earn money in the future, provide for their family, or pay for any future medical bills that may be necessitated because of an injury.
What makes us uniquely human is how we live our life and where we find our joy, and an injury can often result in pain and limitations that can take that away. Those are what we call non-economic damages, and while they can’t be easily quantified, it doesn’t mean that they’re not valuable or that they don’t mean something to the person who has lost them. In our civil justice system, any loss that results in taking away that ability to live your life fully, without pain, is compensable, and it’s our job to prove to a jury that there is value in it.
