How Much Is A Medical Malpractice Case Worth?
Every patient deserves to have, at least, a standard degree of medical care and service. When a doctor, medical provider or nursing home fails to provide the appropriate care and it results in injury or even death, you have a right to be compensated.
Because of the effect of medical malpractice suits on the ability of doctors and medical providers to have affordable liability insurance, legislators have changed laws and limited the amount of damages the courts can award patients in medical malpractice lawsuits.
- In West Virginia, non-economic compensatory damages are capped at $250,000 for each individual.
- When the case involves wrongful death, catastrophic injuries or other permanent injuries from which the victim is no longer able to live independently, the cap is increased to $500,000.
However, there are certain circumstances where these caps may not apply. Frankovitch, Anetakis, Simon, Decapio & Pearl, LLP, is a West Virginia firm fighting for victims since 1967. We are true litigators, and we will not stop until we believe you will receive the most damages possible under the facts of your case.
