Maryland Childbirth Injury Attorney Marcus Boston Explains Childbirth Injury Case Worth
What is my Maryland childbirth injury case worth?
Not only is this one of the more popular questions we are asked regarding a medical malpractice case, it is also a popular question searched for in our educational videos.
The truth of the matter is that every medical malpractice case, or injury case for that matter, will have unique facts.
With that said, there are certain aspects of the case which will always be analyzed.
Hopefully after reading this educational article and watching the supporting video you will have a better idea of how to figure out how much your case might be worth.
THE BASICS OF A MARYLAND MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE…
Maryland law requires that the person bringing a medical malpractice case, or any injury case for that matter, prove four essential elements.
These elements are duty, breach of said duty, causation, and damages.
For the purpose of this article we will focus on the fourth element, damages.
WHAT ARE DAMAGES IN A MARYLAND INJURY CASE?
The easiest way to view damages in this type of situation is through the lens of the harm that is done to you.
Damages can be broken down further into two categories, with the first being economic damages.
Economic damages will be those which flow directly out of your injury and can be documented.
For example, your medical bills, past and future will be a form of economic damages.
Add to this, any lost wages, past and future, in which you might have as a result of your injury, will be analyzed as economic damages.
The second type of damages to be analyzed are non-economic damages.
Non-economic damages would include things like pain and suffering as a result of the injury.
HOW IT ALL COMES TOGETHER IN YOUR CASE…
Your attorney is going to use all of the above information, along with the jurisdiction in which the case will be filed, to figure out what your case is worth.
Professionals such as life care planners and economists might also be used to help the attorney figure out the value of your case.
