How Much Can I Expect from an ER Malpractice Lawsuit in Miami?

Each case has an individual set of circumstances and merits. An attorney can estimate the correct compensation for medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, unitive charges etc. There are also state-imposed caps on damages. A case settled out of court will obtain on average almost half the amount of court awards.

Since each case has a unique set of circumstances under which it happens, determining how much should be paid in compensation is not obvious.

The best possible way of doing so is by discussing with Mr. Sean M. Cleary, Miami based experienced personal injury lawyer the particulars of your case. Based on the experience we have had with other cases, we can estimate how much you could receive in compensation in your case.

The payout made in a malpractice case depends on individual payments made under several categories of damages. It includes:

  • Compensation for the current and future cost of medical treatment.
  • Compensation for income lost as a result of the medical issue.
  • Non-economic compensation for pain and suffering.
  • Some cases may also attract punitive charges for grievous conduct on the part of the medical practitioner.

Another consideration that can be made is about the cap applied by each state on the total amount recoverable in damages. Depending on which state you come from, there is a limit determined by the law.
The state of Florida’s laws, regarding medical malpractice caps are more complex than in most other states. Florida imposes limitations for damages resulting from emergency services, meaning that depending on the type of case, there is a maximum amount of financial compensation that a winning plaintiff can receive.
