In the unfortunate situation that you find you are the victim of medical malpractice, you are entitled to bring a lawsuit against the doctor or hospital that caused that to happen. If you do and as a result of that case you are successful, you’re entitled to recover your past pain and suffering up to the point of that verdict and from that verdict forward, your future pain and suffering.
You are also entitled to recover for your past lost income and what might be your future lost income as a result of the injuries caused by the medical malpractice. You are also entitled to receive what would be your past medical expenses caused by that malpractice and the future medical expenses that might be necessary to help you live through the injuries you sustained.
You are also entitled to receive damages for your loss of enjoyment of life, meaning the things you were able to do before this all happened to you and are now unable to do that made your life fun and interesting. Your spouse, if you are married, is entitled to recover for the loss of your services, companionship, and what the law likes to call consortium, which would be a normal sexual relationship between a husband and wife.
All of these items are items of damages you are entitled to recover if you are involved in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
