Types of Medical Malpractice Claims | Compensation

Compensation in Florida is a little tricky for medical malpractice. The law states that there should be a limit to what you are allowed to get when you bring a claim against a medical professional. These limitations only apply to compensation for things that are non-economic damages which includes mental anguish, pain and suffering, stress, scarring and disfigurement, and loss of companionship. You will not see a cap for damages that are tactile and concrete such as your medical bills, lost wages, and treatments all past and future. There are more complicated aspects to these caps which your attorney can explain to you during your free consultation if they apply to your case.
