Getting Fair Compensation For Medical Malpractice Injuries
When someone suffers harm from an incident of medical malpractice, they may be hesitant to file a compensation claim. One of the reasons they may accept a fast compensation offer without filing a claim is because they do not know what their case is worth or what the full cost of their injuries will be.
At Howell Law Firm, PC, we want you to know what you deserve for your injuries. We have more than 25 years of experience representing injured people throughout Southwest Georgia in medical malpractice cases. We have won multiple multimillion-dollar settlements for our clients. While every compensation claim is different, there are some common factors in a claim that you should receive fair payment for.
What Your Compensation Claim May Be Worth
There are two primary categories of damages that a compensation claim can yield: economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages provide compensation for all the billable costs you experienced for your malpractice injuries, including additional medical care, lost income, home or vehicle accommodations, long-term disability care, medical equipment and other costs. There is also no upper limit to how much you can receive in economic damages, but the compensation you receive for this does need to be based on fair and relevant figures.
For noneconomic costs, the goal is to compensate a victim for damages that cannot be measured by dollars and cents. These damages include pain, suffering, loss of life enjoyment, emotional trauma, inconvenience, scarring and deformity. Unlike economic damages, the upper limit of compensation for noneconomic costs in Georgia is $350,000 against a single health care provider or $700,000 if multiple parties are involved.
Our goal as your legal representation is to build the strongest claim we can to maximize the compensation you receive for your injuries to provide you with the resources you need to move forward from the harm you survived. We will be by your side through every step of your claim, and keep in constant contact with you along the way.
