What Can I Recover for My Injuries?
Monetary damages can include both economic loss and noneconomic losses. Examples of economic loss are past and future medical expenses and related care as well as lost wages.
Noneconomic damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish and grief.
With regard to non-economic damages, the Maryland Legislature has limited the amount plaintiffs can receive in medical malpractice cases.
The amount of the “cap” on noneconomic damages depends upon when the medical malpractice occurred.
How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?
Statutes of limitations are deadlines in which to file lawsuits. The failure to file a lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitations can be a complete bar to recovery.
