Medical malpractice lawsuits arise when a health professional fails to live up to a reasonable standard of care when treating a patient and it results in an injury. The state of Florida has specific guidelines for medical malpractice claims so it is important to work with a Fort Myers medical malpractice attorney to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.

Medical Malpractice Claims in Fort Myers

There are two different categories of damages a person can receive in a medical malpractice claim: economic and non-economic. Economic damages refer to the monetary losses encountered due to your injury. This includes medical expenses, lost wages or lost future earnings. Non-economic damages are the more subjective losses that are hard to put a dollar value on such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement or loss of companionship.

The state of Florida places a cap on non-economic damages that can be recovered. In Title XLV Torts Section 766.101, non-economic damages from medical malpractice by a practitioner is limited to $500,000 and damages caused by a non-practitioner are limited to $750,000. In the case of wrongful death or catastrophic injury, damages are limited to $1 million and $1.5 million respectively.

Although there a limits on the amount victims in Fort Myers, FL can receive for their non-economic damages, there is no cap on economic damages.
